Invitations to Bid (ITB)

An invitation to bid (ITB) or invitation for bid (IFB) is an invitation to contractors or equipment suppliers, through a bidding process, to submit a proposal on a specific project to be realized or product or service  to be furnished. The ITB is focused on pricing and not on ideas or concepts. An offer given in response to an ITB is a bid, which should not be confused with a quote. “Offer” means a response to a solicitation that, if accepted, would bind the bidder to perform the resultant contract. A quote is not an offer and, consequently, cannot be accepted to form a binding contract.

If not stated otherwise, the contractor or supplier with the lowest bid is awarded the contract, provided that they meet the minimum criteria for the bid. This is in contrast to a request for proposal (RFP), in which case other reasons (technology used, quality) might cause or allow choice of the second best offer.

Current open Invitations to Bid are listed below by ITB #, date published and submittal due date. All related documentation is included for each respective ITB.
