Purchase of supplies, equipment, and contractual services (except professional services) where the cost exceeds $50,000 are purchased via formal, competitive, sealed bids per the Ohio Revised Code. We regularly update the website with postings of bid opportunities.
Purchases less than $50,000 are made on the open market.
We usually will call or fax vendors for quotations and set a deadline for responses. Some deadlines may be shorter or longer than others due to the nature of circumstance of the purchase. An average is 24 to 48 hours.
