Georgia expands availability of procurement information effective July 1, 2018.  During the 2018 Legislative Session, House Bill 489 was passed by the General Assembly and becomes effective on July 1, 2018.  HB 489 requires that any bid or proposal extended by a county, municipal corporation or local board of education for goods and services valued at $10,000 or more and any bid or proposal opportunity extended for public works subject to Chapter 91 of Title 36 of the O.C.G.A. be posted on the Georgia Procurement Registry (GPR).

GovDirections monitors the registry daily and incorporates the listings along with upcoming and planned purchases to provide the most comprehensive source for local, state, and federal bids. You can register for a daily notification of new Georgia RFPs at

The GPR is the state’s central bid registry established by the Department of Administrative Services (DOAS) and managed by the State Purchasing Division (SPD) of DOAS.

The information and training resources below are specifically tailored to local governments and boards of education.
