After the solicitation closes, sealed bids are reviewed by the Procurement Analyst and the originating department, and a recommendation for award is made based on the criteria established by the State and based on requirements specifically enumerated in the bid documents. Contract awards are made by the Board of Trustees at their monthly meetings. For the purchase of goods valued between $3,500 and $50,000, IDEA utilizes quotes received from several vendors. Written, faxed or emailed quotes are preferred.
All contracts that exceed $50,000 in the aggregate within a one-year period are released for competition among interested vendors using one of several bidding methods authorized by the state.
