Purchasing Card


Invitation for Bids (IFB)

Formal bid process for purchases exceeding $50,000. The IFB must be publicly posted, generally on a third-party platform called Periscope (formally BidSync). It helps to specifically invite vendors, but since it’s publicly available to all, we are not required to do so.

The award of an IFB is based on a lowest responsible/responsive bid meeting the specifications.
