It is the City's desire to maintain a competitive bid process for all purchases and to make awards for bids based on the lowest responsible and responsive bid received. "Lowest responsible bidder" means the lowest bidder whose offer best responds in quality, fitness and capacity to the requirement of the proposed supply or service. Such factors as delivery time, quality, compatibility, references, experiences, parts and services, freight cost, etc., may play an important role in awarding a bid the "lowest responsible bidder." A "responsive" bid is one that is in substantial conformance with the requirements of the specifications, the invitation to bid and the City's contractual terms and conditions. This would also include such things as completeness of the quotation, forms, inclusion of references and attachments and completion of required responses.
Bid awards are a matter of public record. Abstracts of bids showing prices and awards are available by submitting an OPRA request to the Municipal Clerks Office after the award has been made at (856) 757-7107.
Bids are on an as needed basis. They are advertised in the South Jersey Courier Post Newspaper, which is the official newspaper of the City. In the event of a discrepancy between anything on this website and what has been published in the Courier Post, the Courier Post publication shall prevail. Some bids may require a fee for various plans and specifications.
