The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry has published the authority and municipal 2019 bidding thresholds, with only modest adjustments.

The percentage change for the 12-month period that ended September 30 is 2.3 percent. On January 1, the new bidding thresholds for municipal authorities are:

  • Purchases and contracts below $11,100 require no formal bidding or written/telephone quotes.
  • Purchases and contracts between $11,100 and $20,600 require three written/telephone quotes, but no formal bidding.
  • Purchases and contracts over $20,600 require formal bidding.

The bidding thresholds provide for an annual inflation adjustment based on the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers.
