A quick reference for the contracting, bidding, and property disposal requirements applicable to North Carolina local governments, this publication provides general guidance to public officials and others interested in the public contracting process. Selected North Carolina General Statutes governing contracting and bidding are also included.


This edition revises two previously published guides, An Overview of Contract Bidding Requirements for North Carolina Local Governments, by Frayda S. Bluestein, and An Outline of Statutory Provisions Controlling Purchasing by Local Governments in North Carolina, by Warren Jake Wicker.
