Bidding Thresholds for 2018 Rise

Published on

January 5, 2018

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry’s municipal authority and municipality bidding thresholds will rise 2.2 percent in 2018.

The department recently published its bidding thresholds for 2018 under Act 90 of 2011. Under Act 90, the bidding thresholds provide for an annual inflation adjustment based on the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U).

Effective January 1, 2018, the bidding thresholds for Pennsylvania municipal authorities and municipalities are:

  • Purchases and contracts below $10,900 require no formal bidding or written/telephonic quotations.
  • Purchases and contracts between $10,900 and $20,100 require three written/telephonic quotations.
  • Purchases and contracts over $20,100 require formal bidding. 

Please contact me or any attorney in Barley Snyder’s Municipal Law & Municipal Authority Industry Group if you have any questions concerning public bidding laws.
