Bid Exception Approvals

Wyoming Statutes provide for three basic approaches to construction projects: competitive sealed bidding, competitive negotiation and noncompetitive negotiation, see W.S. 9-2-3006.

Competitive sealed bidding for supplies and services exceeding $50,000 is the standard approach. Competitive negotiation is available when the administrator determines competitive sealed bidding is not feasible, and the governor or his designee also approves.

The tables below provide yearly bid exception approvals for the following project categories: Capitol Renovation, General, Health Care Facilities, & Penitentiary. To view previous years, please click on the corresponding tabs below.
