PUBLIC BIDS & RFPS
Municipalities in the State of New Jersey are required by state law to publish and receive bids from the public on items costing over $17,500 that are not purchased through a State Contract. In order to enhance the competitive bidding process by broadening the population receiving notices, the Borough of Washington now publishes items for which they wish to receive bids on this web site in addition to the traditional means of advertising bids.
PURSUANT TO N.J.S.A. 40A:11-23c, ADDENDA MAY BE ISSUED FOR BIDS. IF BIDDERS OBTAIN AN RFP FROM THE WEB, IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK PRIOR TO THE BID OPENING TO SEE IF AN ADDENDUM HAS BEEN ISSUED. COPIES OF ADDENDA OR NOTICE OF SAME WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE ON THIS WEBSITE OR WILL BE E-MAILED OR SENT VIA U.S. MAIL IF REQUEST IS MADE BY A LETTER OR E-MAIL TO THE PURCHASING AGENT.
