The board of education is aware of N.J.S.A. 18A:18A-21 which states the following:
At such time and place the purchasing agent of the board of education shall publicly receive the bids and thereupon immediately proceed to unseal them and publicly announce the contents, which announcement shall be made in the presence of any parties bidding or their agents who are then and there present.
To ensure there is “social distancing” amongst all parties in the bid opening, the bid opening will be conducted via online live streaming. The names of the vendors and their prices will be announced on the online live streaming which may be viewed by the general public and interested parties on the advertised bid date and time.
The winning vendor’s bid packet will be scanned and posted on the district website for public view @vineland.org under the Bids/RFP tab.
