Bids & RFPs
Purchase contracts and public works contracts subject to competitive bidding will be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder. However, purchase contracts may be awarded on the basis of "Best Value".
Requests for Bids and Requests for Proposals (RFPs) are advertised in The Journal News and are published on the Empire State Municipal Purchasing Group website.
Vendors are encouraged to create an account to download the bid and proposal documents and to ensure up-to-date bid and RFP information.
