Ordering/Updating

Beginning March 22, 2021, Software Orders may now be paid via Credit Card. Refer to e-Notification General 017 for further information.

In response to COVID-19, non-essential PennDOT personnel are required to work from home.  As a result, we do not have access to Software Orders sent via USPS or private parcel carriers.  Until further notice, Software Orders can be submitted by e-mailing the appropriate Order Form and/or Update Form with a scanned copy of the check to PenndotBisEngineer@pa.gov.  The forms and payment should then be shipped as before.  The payments will be processed when we are able to return to the office.  Thank you for your patience.

Please note:  PA 6% Sales Tax applies to all license and update fees with the following exceptions  The sales tax does not apply to out-of-state organizations as long as both the Mailing Address and the Site License Address listed on the Order Form are outside of Pennsylvania, and to Tax-exempt organizations, who submit a PA REV-1220 form (https://www.revenue.pa.gov/FormsandPublications/FormsforBusinesses/SUT/Documents/rev-1220.pdf).

Please Note:  The PENNDOT Engineering Programs do not include a graphical user interface (GUI).  The engineering programs are command line programs that require the input be stored in a text file.  The programs run from the command line, read the input file and produce the output in a text file.  The PENNDOT Engineering Programs can be accessed with a user friendly GUI by licensing the Engineering Assistant (EngAsst) program.  EngAsst is a general purpose Windows GUI program that works with all PENNDOT Engineering Programs and requires a separate license.  For further information about the EngAsst program, click here.
