Bids

Bid Opening Process

On June 22, 2022, the Board approved amendments to certain provisions of the City Procurement Regulations relating to the receiving and opening of bids. The amendments do the following:

  • simplify and streamline the process for receiving and opening bids;
  • remove the requirement of “wet” signatures on bid documents by specifying that electronic signatures are valid and effective;
  • make permanent the current practice of recording bid results electronically after they are announced live at Board meetings, and posting bid results on the Comptroller’s website the same day bids are opened; and
  • allow the Board to make copies of bids available for inspection electronically, and clarify that any part of a bidder’s submission not clearly designated as confidential is subject to disclosure under the Maryland Public Information Act. 

More changes are forthcoming and will be publicly posted as needed. Vendors, suppliers, or other interested parties can sign up for email updates on all BOE processes by e-mailing us.
