Reciprocal Preference Law
Nebraska (NE)

Resident Bidder


A resident bidder shall be allowed a preference against a nonresident from a state which gives or requires a preference to bidders from that state. The preference shall be equal to the preference given or required by the state of the nonresident bidders. Where the lowest responsible bid from a resident bidder is equal in all respects to one from a nonresident bidder from a state which has no preference law, the resident bidder shall be awarded the contract.

Preference for the Blind


Nebraska State Law, 71-8611

A priority shall be given to blind persons with respect to vending facilities in any state-owned building or on and property owned or controlled by the state. 

However, this provision restricts the priority as follows:

This priority shall only be given if the bid submitted is comparable in price to the other bids submitted and the qualifications and capabilities of the vendors bidding for a contract are found to be similar to the other bidders.
