An invitation for bids (IFB) is a formal competitive procedure used by the state when a contract’s value is anticipated to exceed $50,000. Often called a “formal bid” or a “competitive sealed bid,” an IFB is the preferred method for the procurement of goods and services. Registered vendors are notified of procurement activity in the commodity or service categories for which they are entered. Bids are opened in public at the time and place noted in the IFB.
A list of contracts the state will be accepting formal bids for is below.

A Request for Quotations (RFQ) is a bid procedure selected for use when the purchase value of a contract is anticipated to be less than $50,000. Also known as a “informal bid,” an RFQ is used to reduce the time, red tape and administrative cost of bidding when circumstances permit. It does not reduce the necessity to obtain a quality product or service in an economical, fair and objective fashion.
A list of contracts the state accepted informal bids for is below.
