Cooperative Bidding

Any potential bidder who obtains specifications from this website must email our Purchasing Agent, Barbara Costakis at barbara.costakis@dcboces.org and indicate the bid number of the specifications downloaded. By doing so, the potential vendor will be added to a bid holders list and will be notified of addenda, if any, in reference to that bid. Failure to do so may result in a non-responsive bid.

In the event that the Dutchess BOCES Administrative Office is closed the day of the Bid opening, the bid(s) will be opened the next day that the Dutchess BOCES Administrative Office is open at the same posted hour.
