Indiana Department of Administration

IDOA > Public Works Public Works

As a key branch of the Indiana Department of Administration (IDOA), the Public Works Division (DAPW) manages almost all of the building construction and maintenance projects for the state of Indiana. This includes evaluation of construction proposals for feasibility; project design; advertising, public bids, contracts awards and contract management.

In past years, DAPW has administered more than 1,000 design and construction projects annually, with an average estimated value in excess of $70,000,000.

Public Works projects are regularly advertised in major Indiana newspapers and the Court and Commercial Record.

Victory for Indiana

117 years above Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis left the bronze Victory sculpture at the top of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, as well as carved limestone eagles below the observation deck in need of structural repairs.

Spring 2011, “Victory” was removed from its perch for repair and restoration, ready for another century of inspirational grace and beauty. Victory returned to its place atop the monument in the fall after a week of public display. The historic project.
