Placeholder Image
Warren County is considering a measure to double its competitive bid limit requirement.The limit is a financial threshold that requires a project, or purchase, to undergo a competitive bidding process if the estimated cost exceeds a specific amount. By law, this process is required for every government agency in an effort to prevent wasteful spending and create a transparent environment that is open and fair.Currently, the county’s competitive bid limit is $5,000 for the Warren County Board of Education and most of its departments. Under consideration is a measure to increase the limit to $10,000.“Currently, the limit is at $10,000 for the Highway Department,” said Finance Department director Linda Hillis.
