The New Jersey Local Public Contracts Law typically requires NJ government "contracting units" to publicly advertise for bids for contracts greater than a certain dollar amount. However, as noted in N.J.S.A. 40A:11-5 (the Local Public Contracts Law), any contract the amount of which exceeds the bid threshold may be negotiated and awarded by the governing body to Jersey Cape Tags without public advertising for bids and bidding because Jersey Cape Tags is considered a sheltered workshop where work is done by handicapped persons.
