Available to the public for bid
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife is making available to the public limited space on specific pages, sections, and locations in the 2014-2015 Ohio Fishing Regulations.
Why the advertising bid process?
Unlike traditional media sales and marketing agencies, the Ohio Division of Wildlife is a government agency bound by purpose and ethics to serve all Ohioans equally and fairly without bias or preference. All transactions must be fair and transparent so that no advantage is given to any group or individual and the highest ethical standards possible are maintained.
The blind bidding process allows all businesses, corporations, and individuals to consider what their particular needs are, where they would like their product or service promoted, and what that opportunity is worth compared to other promotional investments.
The sealed bids are evaluated after the closing dates and awards are made based on the bids submitted.
Each page, section, or location will have a minimum bid price and specifications for each. All bids considered will have to meet or exceed the posted minimum bid price.
Complete competitive sealed bid
Bidders must submit a complete competitive sealed bid. An Advertising Bid Form is supplied with the bid packet that must be submitted with the required information.
Bids are accepted for the Ohio Fishing Regulations beginning in August, and for the Ohio Hunting and Trapping Regulations in February.
Send your business name, address, and other contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to wildohio.com if you would like to receive the bid notifications, instructions, and other information regarding these opportunities.
