Informal and Open Solicitations

Back to Solicitations and Contracts Home

An Informal Solicitation is a procurement accomplished without an invitation for bids, request for proposal, or request for expressions of interest. It is not subject to formal public notice. Departments will typically post informal solicitations for a period of five business days.

ATTENTION: As part of the County Executive’s efforts to assist local small businesses to recover from the COVID-19 recession, the Director of Procurement will require all Informal solicitations to be reserved under the Local Small Business Reserve Program (LSBRP), starting on April 1st, 2021. This policy affects all Informal solicitations issued AFTER April, 1, 2021 (the list below may show Non-LSBRP informals that have been re-issued due to no LSBRP response).
