What are the bidding rules?

Wisconsin is a low bid state. In general, Suppliers must bid to get contracts with the State of Wisconsin ​(with the exception of Best Judgement (< $5,000) and sole source, or noncompetitive, awards). Formal quoting, bidding, and Request for Proposal processes are used to make awards. Please contact the Director of Procurement for more information about the University’s bidding and awards processes.
