The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry’s municipal bidding thresholds will increase by 8.2% in 2023, compared to the 12-month period ending September 30, 2022.

The Department published its bidding thresholds for 2023 under Act 90 of 2011. Under Act 90, the bidding thresholds provide for an annual inflation adjustment based on the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers.

Effective January 1, 2023, the bidding thresholds for Pennsylvania municipalities are:

  • Purchases and contracts below $12,200 require no formal bidding or written/telephonic quotations.
  • Purchases and contracts between $12,200 and $22,500 require three written/telephonic quotations.
  • Purchases and contracts over $22,500 require formal bidding.

Please contact Daniel Conlon or any attorney in our firm’s Municipal & School group if you have any questions concerning public bidding laws.
