Did You Know?

When determining the “total value” for purposes of choosing the appropriate method of competition, you must include all options, potential renewals, and any reasonably anticipated additions or increases. DOP considers 5 years to be the typical potential life of a contract (some agencies use a shorter window); therefore, if an ongoing service (such as janitorial or landscaping) costs $2,000 or more annually, the total value is $10,000, and an informal solicitation is required.
