All purchases by the Borough are authorized by the issuance of a purchases order and no order should be accepted by any vendor without a copy of the signed purchase order.

Request for Quotation (RFQ)

Purchases between $5,400 and the statutory bid threshold of $36,000 will generally require a Request for Quotation. The Purchasing Department will solicit these quotes in various manners, including but not limited to utilizing public auction web sites and requesting quotes from various vendors.

Request for Bid (RFB)
