REQUESTS FOR SEALED BIDS


The sealed bidding process is a formal advertising which involves the issuance of an invitation or Notice to Bid.  Sealed bidding is how the Van Buren County Road Commission contracts competitively when its requirements are clear, accurate and complete.  A Notice to Bidders is the method used for the sealed bid process.  The Notice to Bidders typically includes a copy of the specifications for the particular proposed purchase or project with instructions for preparation of bids, any conditions, and delivery or schedule.  The Notice also designates the date and time in which sealed bids are to be received by the Van Buren County Road Commission, and the date and time of bid opening. 


Following the opening of the bid there is typically an evaluation of the bids received and a contract is usually awarded to the lowest bidder determined to be responsive and responsible, and in the best interest of the Van Buren County Road Commission.

To be placed on a Bidders List to receive Invitations and Notices, please contact the Van Buren County Road Commission at 269-674-8011, or via email at jillbrien@vbcrc.org.
