AASHTOWare Project Preconstruction™

Last updated: 2019-12-19

AASHTOWare Project Preconstruction™ allows staff to define a project and its associated funding requirements to track and manage project cost information. The system supports preparation of the engineer’s estimate for Federal Aid highway construction projects, allows projects to be combined into proposals for bid letting, and permits the selection of a group of proposals for a bid letting package. It also aids in advertising bids, tracking plan and proposal holders, processing bid information, evaluating bids, and making award decisions.

The department implemented the Preconstruction™ module in October 2016. This module replaced the AASHTOWare Project Proposal and Estimates System (PES) and the AASHTOWare Project Letting and Award System (LAS) applications. Individuals that need access to AWP Preconstruction would include WisDOT and consultant designers who create engineering estimates as part of a PSE submittal.
