Change in MN Law for Public Capital Project Bidding

Beginning on August 1, the threshold in Minnesota law at which a contract for a public capital project must be awarded via sealed bids or a Best Value procedure increases from $100,000 to $175,000. A capital project estimated to cost less than $175,000 may be contracted for by other methods such as competitive quotes. This threshold increase applies to contracts entered into on or after August 1, 2018.
