Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40A:11-3(c) and 18A:18A-3(b), the State Treasurer has exercised her authority to adjust bid thresholds for contracting units subject to the Local Public Contracts Law and the Public School Contracts Law. These adjustments became effective on July 1, 2020

Updates to Thresholds

  • The maximum bid threshold for contracting units that have appointed a Qualified Purchasing Agent has been increased from $40,000 to $44,000. The maximum bid threshold for contracting units that do not have a Qualified Purchasing Agent remains at $17,500.
  • Two exceptions to the bid threshold amounts mentioned above involve road contracts subject to N.J.S.A. 27:2-1 or N.J.S.A. 27:16-16, and the odd-year bid threshold adjustment formula that was in effect prior to P.L. 1999, c. 440.
