Georgia Procurement Registry for Local Governments
During the 2018 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 489, requiring that any bid or proposal extended by a county, municipal corporation or local board of education for goods and services valued at $10,000 or more and any bid or proposal opportunity extended for public works (subject to Chapter 91 of Title 36 of the O.C.G.A.) valued at $100,000 or more be posted on the Georgia Procurement Registry (GPR).
The GPR is the state's central bid registry established by the Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) and managed by the State Purchasing Division (SPD) of DOAS. The registry is also the public policy tool for notification to suppliers for bid opportunities with state entities and local governments to ensure transparency and offer market competition.
During the 2019 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 322, which was recently signed into law by Governor Brian P. Kemp. The new law provides consistency in the minimum threshold requirement for posting notices and also further clarifies time frames for posting notices. For a summary of the changes, please view Communications.
The information and training resources below are specifically tailored to local governments and boards of education. Active events can be viewed directly on the links below, and suppliers can be notified of bid opportunities by registering on the Team Georgia Supplier/Bidder portal.
