Simplified Bidding Procedure
The simplified bidding procedure is for a commodity or service not available on a mandatory State contract with an estimated cost between $5,000 through $50,000. The total purchase of the commodity or service must not exceed $50,000 for a single purchase and/or the term of the contract. This procedure must be completed and submitted to prior to the item/service purchased.
Official Sealed Bid Procedure
For commodities or services that exceed a $50,000 threshold, including multiple years/contract value, contact purchasing for facilitating the appropriate procurement process.
Official Sealed Bids take about 3-6 months to complete.
