What is Joint Bidding?
CapCOG jointly bids items on behalf of our municipal and associate members. By bidding larger volumes save each municipality gets the
best price possible.  Additionally, municipalities save he time and resources that would be needed to initiate bids on their own.


What Do You Bid?
We currently bid the items listed above.  Each year, we evaluate the items we bid based on our members' needs.  Additional categories may be added or a category removed if it is not beneficial to our members.

How Do Members Participate?
CapCOG sends bid packages to members in December each year.  To participate, members submit their estimated quantities/services needed on the forms provided by CapCOG.  Submitting a bid amount does not obligate a member to purchase the amount indicated. 

What Happens Next?


  • compiles the total amounts for all members participating into a summary sheet for all categories
  • prepares bid packages to send to vendors
  • advertises bids and puts them on-line
  • holds a public bid opening
  • tabulates the bid results
  • notifies vendors and secures executed Notice of Award and Performance Bonds
  • notifies CapCOG members of winning bids

As with all CapCOG programs participation is voluntary.  Joint Bidding is open to all Municipal Members and included with their Annual membership.  Associate Members may choose Joint Bidding as their complimentary program when they become an  Associate Member or they may add it for an additional cost.
