For competitive, sealed bid opportunities, you may attend the public opening of all of the sealed bids to obtain the prices that were submitted by each vendor. The date, time, and locations for public bid openings are listed on the Procurement Department website. After the bid is awarded, you may call the Procurement Department’s Public Information Unit at 215-686-4755 to learn the identity of the successful bidder. If you’d like to view the bid schedule containing the bid language, list of bidders and their pricing, and total contract amount awarded to the successful bidder(s), fill out this form and send it to the Procurement Department according to the directions.
For non-competitively bid (professional services) contracting opportunities, visit the eContract Philly site. There the City posts the names of companies or organizations who submitted proposals for the opportunity, notices of contract awards and the reason for the award, (if not made to the lowest-cost proposal).
IntegrityWorks offers guidance for commonly-occurring situations. These are not the only situations in which ethics rules would apply; they are simply the most common ones. Other guidance may be added to this site as situations warrant.
These are general guidelines. Because each situation presents its own set of facts, this general guidance isn’t advice on which you can legally rely. If you want to be absolutely sure that your conduct complies with applicable ethics laws, you should seek advice before taking action.
