NJSEM Members may freely participate in our procurements and are only bound by the results if they DO NOT opt out before the end of the opt out period. As a NJSEM member, you not only receive all the administrative work performed on your behalf as a part of your membership, but all the important issues inherent to a public procurement have been weighed and addresses for you by our team of experienced industry experts. If you are a member or considering becoming a member here are some questions to ask before proceeding with a procurement on your own.
Is our supply going to be competitively bid? Remember, under NJ State Law public entities must hold an open, competitive bid following the NJ DCA's rules and regulations. If your procurement does not follow these guidelines you may be subject to penalties and your agreements void.
