Alabama Bid Law
As a state institution, Jacksonville State University is subject to the requirements of the State of Alabama Competitive Bid Law. This law requires that all purchases and/or contracts for labor, services, materials, equipment, and supplies within a fiscal year that will total $15,000 or more be bid.
Competitive, sealed bids will be requested by the Office of Purchasing on any item or group of like items costing $15,000 or more annually. Vendors will have approximately two weeks from the time bid requests are sent to submit bids to the Office of Purchasing. Bids received will be opened by the Director of Purchasing (or a designee) at the date and time stated in the bid specifications.
Jacksonville State University sends bid requests to vendors electronically. Bid documents should be submitted via email in Word of Excel format (not PDF). Vendor lists should include both a valid email address as well as a mailing address. Bid forms are located to the right.
Bid responses from vendors must still be submitted in sealed, hard-copy form. The State of Alabama Competitive Bid Law does not allow for electronic bid responses.
Please call the Office of Purchasing at 256-782-5152, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions concerning the bid process.
