Bids & RFP's

Northshore Utility District offers opportunities and requests for proposals. All Request for Bids, Request for Proposals and/or Bid Invitations will be posted on this web page to solicit bids and/or proposals from qualified vendors and/or contractors. The bidding process is governed by the procedures approved by the Board of Commissioners as set forth in the District’s Purchasing and Procurement Policy.

Current Opportunities

Small Works Projects
For small works projects the District may use the Municipal Research Services Center (MRSC) Small Works, Vendors & Consultant Rosters. If interested in being considered for small works projects, it is recommended that you register your business with MRSC Rosters on the appropriate roster(s).

Bid Opportunities
For public works and large materials, supplies and equipment procurements, the District will issue an invitation to bid – a formal sealed bid process that typically results in a public bid opening.

Requests for Proposals
A Request for Proposals (RFP) is a method of soliciting competitive proposals for a defined scope of work. An RFP considers and evaluates factors to measure qualification, delivery and service reputation as well as price.

Requests for Qualifications
A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is a method of soliciting competitive proposals that formally considers and evaluates factors to measure firms on the basis of demonstrated competency and qualification rather than price.
