The Blue Book of Building and Construction, Westchester, N.Y., has established a strategic alliance with the United States Army Corps of Engineers to promote and centralize General Contract bid solicitations in 42 districts nationwide.

Through an XML program, The Blue Book will be able to search each of the United States Army Corps.’ 42 district websites and extract General Contract bid solicitations. The information is then organized and promoted under an appropriate regional category in The Blue Book’s BidScope, a free service that allows vendors to find local and regional projects targeted to their specific trade. General Contractors, after viewing the bid solicitation, can assign and message vendors to help prepare their bid for the project. Visit
