Potential Supplier Info
How We Buy
The Authority solicits quotes, or informal and formal bids, proposals and statements of qualifications for goods and services needed on a regular basis. There may be one or multiple deliveries required. The notice of solicitation may be posted on the Authority website or the appropriate Authority contact may perform the solicitation.
The solicitation notices for formally advertised construction design projects exceeding $50,000 and construction projects exceeding $100,000 are posted on the Authority’s website. In addition construction solicitation notices may also be published in the Columbus Dispatch.
The Authority also purchases directly from a variety of State of Ohio and other cooperative contracts.
Invoice Payment Procedures
The Authority has an invoice approval process that provides appropriate accountability with a minimal number of required approvers to generate payments quickly and efficiently. Absent any other terms and with an accurate invoice, the Authority typically provides payment within 30 days.
