Bids & Requests for Proposal
Bid ResultsOpen BidsFormal Bid Process
The purchase of goods or services exceeding $10,000 shall be subject to the formal competitive bid process. Sealed bids shall be sought when a good or service is anticipated to cost more than $10,000 either individually or in an aggregate of multiple purchases made over the course of one fiscal year.

The bid shall be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder or any other bidder whom the village board deems to be in the best interest of the village.

Professional Services

A formal bid process is not required if the purchase is for professional services over $10,000; some professional services include:
  • Accounting
  • Consulting
  • Engineering
  • Legal

The bid process is also not required for:
  • Purchases for emergencies
  • Purchases from a sole source provider
  • Types of work that do not lend itself to the formal competitive bid process

The above types of services lend themselves to the request for proposal process rather than the invitation to bid process.
