Getting Started with SharePoint for Consultants

Consultants have a unique way to access pre-approved documents that are hosted by the DOT in Office 365. Clicking the below link will allow a user to request access to the Bureau of Engineering and Construction's Consultants group providing access to documents and a webpage with navigation links.

Please be advised that authorization to access documents has a time limitation of one year.

To continue accessing material beyond the expiration date, you will need to complete another access request following the same steps as for the original request. Consultants must renew their access requests annually to ensure that they continue to have access to the most up-to-date information.

Request Access:

  1. Enter your email address to log-in.
