The Borough of Roselle obtains price quotes for all purchases between $6,600 and $44,000; uses State Contract Vendors; and solicits bids for any purchases above $44,000. All purchases by the Borough are authorized by the issuance of a purchase order and no order should be accepted by any vendor without a copy of the signed purchase order.

Request for Quotation (RFQ) 
Purchases between $6,600 and the statutory bid threshold of $44,000 will generally require a Request for Quotation. The Purchasing Department will solicit these quotes in various manners, including but not limited to utilizing public auction websites and requesting quotes from various vendors.

Bid Process
According to State Statute, the Borough is required to solicit formal bids for products, services, or public improvements when the cost exceeds the statutory bid threshold of $44,000.

After all submitted bids are evaluated, the lowest Responsible and Responsive Bidder is awarded the contract within 60 days. Exceptions to this schedule would be in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40A-11-24. Award to the winning vendor will be made by formal resolution of the Governing Body.
