Competitively solicited by The City of Charlotte, a North Carolina municipal corporation. The City of Charlotte contract #2019000318 fulfills bidding requirements, allowing participating agencies to piggyback on this contract through Joint Powers Authority or an inter-local agreement. This satisfies the competitive bid requirement in most states. Please review your state’s cooperative bylaws. If information is needed, it can be found on www.uscommunities.org.
