PRO-601 Legal and Public Notices

Section​ ​Title



    The purpose of this policy is to establish the required procedure for posting public and legal notices for certain procurement transactions.


    Any solicitation over the official sealed bid threshold, the signage threshold, or Request for Proposal (RFP) threshold will be advertised. Any request to waive bidding requirements over the noncompetitive negotiation (sole source) or general waiver threshold(s) will be advertised. See PRO-101, Procurement Definitions and Thresholds.

    A public notice is an advertisement of a procurement on the official designated website,

    A legal notice is an advertisement in the official state newspaper.

    Agencies must use prescribed systems for posting solicitations. These systems automatically will generate a public notice on the designated website which satisfies the advertising requirement. See PRO-103, Procurement Systems and Bidders Lists.

    Because agencies do not post noncompetitive negotiations (sole source) and general waivers on required procurement systems, the agency will use the public notices website directly to generate the notice.
