In 2024, the rates increased 3% from 2023 rates. Most government entity projects, including municipal authorities, counties, boroughs, and townships, will require a public bid when the project totals more than $23,200 in 2024.

Beginning on January 1, 2024, the bidding thresholds for municipal authorities will be as follows:

Contract Amount Bid Requirement
below $12,600 No formal bidding or written/telephonic quotations required
$12,600-$23,200 Three written/telephonic quotations required
