Doing Business With Us

Products and Services Purchases (except training)

For purchases in excess of $250,000, the Board normally issues Requests for Proposals (RFP) to obtain contractors to provide operational, administrative, and special project services as well as office supplies, equipment, office furnishings, and other goods. For purchases under $250,000, the Board generally procures goods and services through Requests for Quotes (RFQ).
