How to Bid on CHIP Projects

Projects are advertised at the Valley Contractors Exchange in Chico and, where available, at local builders’ exchanges within the immediate city, town, or county of the project. All plans and specifications will be available at these exchanges for prospective bidders to review.

Bidders may submit their quote by either fax, email, mail, or directly to the CHIP office on or before the bid date.

After the bid date, we review all bids for completeness and accuracy. Bidder’s qualifications for proper licensing and insurance will be researched and verified.

Competitive bidding shall be the process of choice for selecting prospective contractors and suppliers. A low bid shall not be the sole criterion for selection. We take into consideration prior experience, work references, competency, and availability.
