What are the rules for getting contract bids?
In 2004, the Legislature enacted authority to use electronic reverse auctions for soliciting contract bids, as well as using electronic tools to sell surplus and obsolete supplies and equipment. For contracts over $50,000, you must solicit the public and used sealed bids. For contracts from $10,000 to $50,000, you may solicit sealed bids or use direct negotiation with two quotes obtained when possible. For contracts valued at $10,000 or less, you should solicit at least two quotes or you can use an open market source.
