Legal Notices & Bids

Contractors and vendors are invited to bid/quote on furnishing products and services to the Authority / Agency. When feasible, the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority (CRPRA) limits paper-based bidding in favor of electronic procurement via the PennBid Program, a platform for the quotation and sealed bid process, as authorized by the Commonwealth and, in February, 2011, by the CRPRA.

Each vendor/bidder must register at PennBid (no registration fee required). Once registered, vendors will also gain access to bid opportunities from over 130 PA agencies and private firms. All documents are available online, plus registrants may prepare, submit and update quotations or sealed bids until the official deadline for that solicitation. Registrants can also be automatically notified of other opportunities that match their products and services.  Please note that is not an auction-style web service; it is a platform for the quotation and sealed-bid process. To read more about the process, please read the PennBid Instructions To Bidders.

Other Requests for Proposals (RFPs) or Requests to Bid (RTBs) will be posted here from time-to-time. Additionally, the CRPRA’s RFPs and RTBs are cross-posted to the CRCOG website.

Policy information for bidders:

Centre Region COG Open Records Policy

The Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority (CRPRA), as an agency of the Centre Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), has authorized the adoption of the COG Open Records Policy. The COG policy was developed in compliance with PA Act 3 of 2008, the Right-to-Know Law, and adopted by the participating municipalities of the CRCOG. On January 26, 2009, the CRCOG General Forum approved the Open Records Policy, which therefore includes the operations of the Recreation Authority and Centre Region Parks and Recreation. Please review the Open Records Policy.
