It depends, for bids and proposals being let by the "Public Works" department, please look to their page under public works for the listings of any projects they are publishing. For all other public works, the county is statutorily authorized to dispense with this as the county utilizes the MRSC roster for projects valued under $350,000. If you're interested in seeing these projects, please go to the MRSC roster links under the Central Services web page and become a member. By doing this, if and when the county publishes a request for bids, proposals, or qualifications and your business is in the services category we have selected, you will receive the invitation in your email.
The County will, after a bid opening that has been published to the MRSC roster, post the bid opening log sheet, the original bid request document, and any questions/answers during the bidding process on the website.
No, the bond form from your surety will do. As per RCW 36.32.250, the County must find a company bid "Non-Responsive" if it does not contain a "bid bond" in the amount equal to 5% of the proposed bid.
Sometimes, depending on the complexity or some specific issue tied to the project being bid, we may require a mandatory walk-through to ensure the interested bidders understand why something may not be typical and should be considered carefully in their bid. This protects both the bidder and the county from future issues that may create issues for either the county or the bidder. If a bid document states that a walkthrough is "mandatory", any interested bidder must attend at the appointed time and place. The county keeps a record of those who attended the walkthrough. Any firm's bid that is submitted will be deemed Non-Responsive" if the firm did not have a representative at the walkthrough. Grant County typically does not require walkthroughs for most projects,

This page and others you will find while visiting their site contains many resources for a contractor to understand the various requirements for performing public works. These include topics such as certified payroll requirements, contractor training requirements, prevailing wage requirements, retainage, and more.
