Updated Competitive Bidding Threshold for Michigan Public Schools

October 31, 2023

In accordance with Sections 1267 and 1274 of the Michigan Revised School Code, MCL 380.1267 and MCL 380.1274, the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has issued its annual memorandum to establish the competitive bidding thresholds for Michigan Public Schools for fiscal year (FY) 2023-2024. A copy of the memorandum can be found here. The new competitive bidding threshold is $29,572 and applies to all construction, renovation, repair, or remodeling of school buildings (Section 1267), as well as the purchase of supplies, materials, and equipment (Section 1274) for Michigan public schools. This new limit remains in effect until the MDE issues its memorandum for the next fiscal year.

If you have any questions about these or other issues in connection with school purchasing, construction, and procurements, please contact Jeremy S. Motz at | (248) 988-5895, or another member of Clark Hill’s Education Law team.
