What is the approval process for bids?

Bids are evaluated for:

  • Compliance with bid specifications
  • Financial responsibility
  • The lowest responsible bidder
  • The reputation of the vendor
  • Service availability
  • Other relevant considerations

After analysis, a recommendation is submitted to the Township Committee for award. All awards or rejections normally occur within 60 days unless an extension is granted by the bidder. Notifications of award/rejection will be made in writing.
