Board Policy, shall be subject to the
following competitive procedures:
6
PROCUREMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT
Solicitations
• Invitation to Bid (ITB) is used to obtain pricing on specific goods or
services. All responses shall be publically opened on the scheduled
date and time shown in the solicitation.
• Request for Proposal (RFP) is based on a scope of work and will be
evaluated by a committee based on pre-determined evaluation criteria
to determine which vendor offers the “best value” to the District.
• Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is used to determine the
qualifications of a vendor to provide goods or services and will be
evaluated by a committee.
• Request for Information (RFI) is used to obtain information from
potential vendors prior to issuing a formal solicitation (ITB, RFP or
RFQ). The information submitted may be used to develop
specifications or scope of work for a formal solicitation.

PROCUREMENT SERVICES DEPARTMENT
Solicitations
• The Procurement Services Department provides
information regarding current solicitations via the APS
Purchasing website, and also on the State of Georgia’s
Procurement Registry

APS Purchasing website

Solicitations: Vendor Eligibility for Consideration

contracts to responsible parties, vendors listed on the
United States Government’s System for Award
Management (www.sam.gov) will not be eligible for
consideration for a contract award.
• To be eligible for consideration, vendors must be in
compliance with all Federal, State and local laws (including
Georgia’s HB 87 a/k/a “E-Verify”). Information about the
requirements of HB 87 can be found on our website at:
