Engineering Applications

About Our Program

The Engineering Applications team supports a variety of software (AASHTOWare, Project Bids, etc.) that helps manage more than $1.4 billion in projects annually.

Construction (SiteManager)

CDOT's construction software, AASHTOWare SiteManager, is a comprehensive construction management tool that tracks, reports, and analyzes contract data from contract award through finalization.

Materials (LIMS)

CDOT's material-tracking software, SiteManager Materials (LIMS) records, tracks, and reports on material samples and test results from job sites, plants, and test labs.

Project Bids

The Project Bids software streamlines the bidding process, providing CDOT with control over the bid letting process while facilitating bid submittal for contractors.


CDOT is preparing to pilot several eConstruction apps and mobile devices, including site inspection (daily work reports), blueprint markup and sharing, PDF file-editing, project management software, and an ADA-inventory app.

Innovative Contracting

In conjunction with the publication of the 2016 Design Build Manual, the Engineering Applications team created several innovative user guides that provide an additional level of support and guidance when using any Engineering Applications software.

CDOT offers a variety of bridge application programs, including the Metric Bridge Geometry User Manual, Bridge Geometry Project Coordinate Converter User's Guide, and COGO Manual. Contact CDOT for more information.
