The Wilkes County Board of Education encourages processes that will foster competition among potential bidders. The identity of contractors who have obtained proposals for bid purposes for a public contract is confidential until the bids are opened in public and recorded in the Board of Education minutes. Any employee who divulges such information to any unauthorized person will be subject to disciplinary action.
This policy is not intended to limit the superintendent's discretion to conduct pre-bid meetings.
