Each year the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry announces new public project cost thresholds required for public bids. The thresholds for 2022 have increased again this year. 

The 2022 rates increased 3% from last year. Most government entity projects, including municipal authorities, counties, boroughs, and townships, will require a public bid when the project totals more than $21,900 in 2022.

Beginning on January 1, 2022, the bidding thresholds for municipal authorities will be as follows:

  • Purchases and contracts below $11,800 require no formal bidding or written/telephonic quotations.
  • Purchases and contracts between $11,800 and $21,900 require three written/telephonic quotations.
  • Purchases and contracts over $21,900 require formal bidding.

See the complete bulletin with all the government entities and legislation via the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
