What is an informal bid?

Informal bids, valued less than $25,000, require competitive bidding. At their discretion, buyers may solicit quotes via phone, fax, or internet. Bids are awarded to successful vendors based upon their ability to provide maximum quality goods and services at a minimum price. To ensure your quotation is evaluated fairly, all written quotes should include the following:

  • Item cost
  • Delivery cost
  • Applicable taxes
  • Delivery lead time
  • Vendor contact name and phone number and/or e-mail address
