Weighted Local Preference Policy for Formal Sealed Bids

Recognizing that our citizens financially support this community, providing local vendors with a weighted bid process in order to keep our tax dollars in Pittsburg is desired.

Local Pittsburg vendors shall receive preference in the amount of 5%. The local preference applies to businesses in an area within a mile of the City of Pittsburg corporate limits. However, in a case where a bidder within the corporate City limits and a bidder outside the City limits are the lowest bidders (including the preference), then the bidder within the City limits would be awarded the contract. Local Pittsburg vendors shall receive preference in the amount of 5%.

The weighted bidding process is subject to the following requirements:

    • There must be at least two bids submitted.
    • The local Pittsburg vendor must comply with the bidding procedures.
    • The weighted bidding process shall not apply to construction projects, or to combined construction and equipment projects where construction costs exceed 50% of the total project.
    • The bid selected must still constitute the lowest and best bid submitted.
    • The weighted local bidders’ policy is not applicable to purchases involving grant funds.
