Hutto, TX (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
Interactive Procurement Technologies by BidNet (IPT) launched its updated statewide Texas Purchasing Group (http://www.TexasBidSystem.com) enabling local government agencies in Texas to save on procurement processing costs while allowing vendors centralized bid access.
IPT enhanced its statewide system, the Texas Purchasing Group which provides a resourceful online platform for local Texas government agencies to streamline and improve the effectiveness of their procurement process at reduced costs, while making it easier for vendors to do business with local governments. The bid system currently connects 622 departments from 22 local Texas government agencies and provides a bid notification system giving vendors instant access to Texas local Bids, RFP's, Quotes and Addendums online.
Texas Bid System features for its registered vendors include:
“The Texas Bid System updates make it easier for vendors to do business with counties and municipalities within the state of Texas,” stated Dan Ansell, VP of BidNet. “The City of Hutto and other municipalities benefit from the success of the Texas Purchasing Group through the system’s statewide approach to local government procurement. Our feedback from vendors has been positive, vendor reach & contact is much greater than before, response has increased & pricing obtained has been consistently below budgeted amounts since joining the Texas Purchasing Group,” added Randy Barker, the City of Hutto’s Internal Services Manager and Agency leader with the Texas Purchasing Group.
The Texas Purchasing Group provides Texas purchasing professionals the ability to share resources with other high performing agencies throughout the state. In addition, the participating agencies achieve greater process transparency while making it easier for vendors to do business with local government. “Both vendors and agencies within the Texas procurement cycle win; the agencies save time and money while vendors get access to multiple local government bid opportunities in one location,” Ansell explained.
“My advice to vendors is to register on the Texas Bid System. This is a great opportunity for you to get on a level playing field with other vendors while ensuring that you are not missing possible opportunities to compete for business,” Barker added.
