The traditional method of advertising for contract bids or proposals is through a “newspaper receiving wide local circulation.”
This COIN informs local agencies of the allowable use of non-traditional (electronic) advertising methods, the broad parameters covering such non-traditional methods, and the need to clearly document those advertising methods utilized.
This COIN pertains to advertising for contract bids/proposals for construction contracts as well as formal A&E consultant qualifications/proposals.
