Where should prospective vendors send their Request for Proposal (RFP) responses?

Prospective vendors should send their RFP responses to:

Rockingham County Commissioners
RFP – “RFP Name”
119 North Road
Brentwood, NH  03833

RFP responses that are not properly addressed, or that are not marked with the RFP name, run the risk of not being received by the Commissioners Office by the deadline, or being opened along with regular mail, and therefore invalidated.  Please ensure vendors know to clearly mark any materials with the RFP name, at a minimum.

If a vendor has specific questions regarding the RFP, they should refer to the departmental contact information detailed within the RFP.   For more details on the bid process, please see the RFP Policy and Procedures.

What is the minimum dollar threshold for the required bid process to go into effect?

The minimum threshold for the competitive bidding process is $5,000, per County law (RSA 28:8, RSA 28:8-b and RSA 28:8-f). This threshold applies for purchases of all kinds, contracts and leases.  If the first year payment total under a contract or lease is less than $5,000 but the grand total of the stream of payments under the same contract or lease is $5,000 or greater, then the bid process does apply.  For more details on the bid process, please see RFP Policy and Procedures.
