The City of Oviedo Standard Operating Procedures establishes thresholds for the method of procurement based on the dollar value of the purchase.
- Purchases from $1,000.00 to $10,000.00 requires three verbal quotes.
- Purchases from $10,000.00 to $35,000.00 requires three written quotes.
- Purchases greater than $35,000 require formal solicitation for bid/proposal.
The requirements for quotes or bids/proposals may be waived if an opportunity to piggy-back another governmental entity’s competitive bid is available. This can save the City the cost of soliciting formal bids for the same commodity or service.It is against the City’s Standard Operating Procedures to split a purchase into two or more orders to avoid the $1,000 limit and related requirement for three verbal quotes.
