Using ESubmit for Notice of Interest forms

WisDOT requires firms to use the ESubmit application when submitting Notice of Interest forms (NOIs) for construction or design/related services solicitations.

Firms with permissions for ESubmit may:

  • Go to the consultant extranet and review the instructions to properly upload an NOI.
  • Go directly to the ESubmit application if you have successfully uploaded an NOI in previous solicitations.


Firms not receiving permissions for ESubmit for previous solicitations must follow the steps below:

  • Do not wait to perform these steps until the last minute.
  • Performing these tasks well in advance makes the submittal process much easier.
  • Register for a Wisconsin User ID and password to access the Consultant extranet.
    • If you already have an extranet ID to access contract forms and on-line manuals, there is no need to reapply for a separate password.

    • For directions on how to request a ID and password, read the WisDOT consultant extranet access page.

    • The consultant extranet access page also includes contact information for troubleshooting extranet ID and password. Please use those contacts to change the name or address on the extranet ID or address problems such as lockouts and forgotten passwords.

Upon receiving an extranet ID and password (or if you already have one):

  • Email consultant.services@dot.state.wi.us with the first name, last name, email address and phone number (including area code) of the person listed as the owner of the extranet ID. WisDOT Consultant Services must give that ID special permissions to use ESubmit. Do not send your extranet ID or password.

  • If multiple people in your firm use ESubmit for NOIs, include each of their names and addresses in the email. Each person must have a separate Wisconsin User ID to access the extranet. There are no restrictions on the number of people in a firm receiving permissions.

  • Please include the phrase "ESubmit permissions" in the subject line of your message.

  • Be sure the email address you send to receive ESubmit permissions matches the email address on your extranet account. This is especially important for those recently changing firms or taking duties for NOI submittal. See the consultant extranet access page for how to check or change your extranet ID email address.

  • Do not attempt to use ESubmit until after you have received an email confirming the ID has the necessary permissions.

  • After receiving a message from WisDOT stating that ESubmit permissions have been established for your extranet ID, go to the consultant extranet and follow the detailed instructions for submitting files.

  • Note that the construction or design/related services solicitation page may also include instructions for submittal specific to that solicitation.

For help on ESubmit, send an email to consultant.services@dot.wi.gov. Please attempt to upload files twice, thoroughly reading the instructions, before contacting Consultant Services.
