Jackson Council Raises No-Bid Contract Threshold to $40,000

JACKSON-Officials in Jackson Township have raised the threshold at which no-bid contracts can be awarded by the municipal government to $40,000.

The action was in response to a July 1, 2015 change in state law that raised the threshold of public contracts by $4,000 from $36,000.

The  township can award contracts under that threshold without a public bidding process.

There was no council comment on the resolution which was voted unanimously by the five member board.

The state of New Jersey raises the bid thresholds every five years.
