For most purchases of goods and services estimated to be between $2,000 and $5,000: Three vendors will be asked to submit quotes which may be obtained verbally, through electronic means, or in writing, as allowed by law. Award shall be made to the vendor providing the lowest acceptable quote, unless justified in writing based on price and other specified factors.
Purchases of goods and services from $5,001 to $25,000: Competitive bid and negotiation will be used and will invite offers in writing from at least three vendors. If non-price factors are used, they shall be disclosed to all those solicited. The names, addresses, and/or telephone numbers of the offerors and persons contacted, and the date and amount of each quotation shall be recorded and maintained as a public record.
An Invitation for Bids (IFB) or a Request for Proposals (RFP) is advertised for purchases of goods and services estimated more than $25,000: As a general rule, an IFB is used for construction projects estimated more than $100,000. Anyone interested in obtaining an IFB or RFP should contact the purchasing department. Sealed bids/proposals must be received and time stamped by the Purchasing department prior to the submittal deadline. All late bids/proposals are returned to the vendor/offeror without being opened.
