Are there exceptions to the competitive bidding process for purchases greater than $5,000?

Yes, there is an exception to the competitive bidding process (per RSA 28:8-f).  If it can be proven to the Rockingham County Board of Commissioners that it is proper to forego the bid process and award a purchase, contract, or lease to a particular vendor, then a Bid Waiver Request can be approved by the Commissioners.  The vote by the Commissioners must be unanimous (three for, none against). For more details on the bid process, please see the RFP-Policy-and-Procedures.
