View Full Version : Benchmarking - Bid limits

03-01-2011, 02:59 PM
Good Morning,

utmb Health is trying to obtain some benchmarking data on bidding limits for both public and private organizations.

For example our limits are:
$5,000 spot purchase
$5,000 to $25,000 informal bids required
$25,000+ formal bids required

Please help me with providing your current bid limits. I would appreciate knowing if you are a public/private university or a company.

Thank you,
Karen Gross
