Equal Opportunity Bids
Plainsboro strives to be compliant with all applicable laws and statutes throughout the purchasing process while promoting full, free, fair, open competition. As an equal opportunity employer, the Township encourages all vendors including small and minority owned businesses to respond to the township’s needs for goods and services.
