Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
The City of Denver and the County of Denver announced that Denver has joined the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System (RMEPS), an online procurement system that provides vendors with an easier and more economical way to access and compete for local government bids.
Rocky Mountain Bid System connects 1,296 departments from 79 local government agencies throughout the Rocky Mountain region including the City of Aurora, Denver Water, Jefferson County Public Schools, and Denver Public Schools. The online bid system provides bid notification to vendors and provides instant access to Bids, RFP's, Quotes and Amendments online.
The City and County of Denver joined RMEPS in March, providing its vendors with convenient access to bid information for the City of Denver, Denver County and all other participating local Colorado government agencies on the system.
Denver’s Purchasing Division invites all local vendors to join the Rocky Mountain Bid System to receive access to its upcoming solicitations. Vendor benefits of registering on the Rocky Mountain Bid System include:
The bid system allows the City and County of Denver to align itself with other local agencies and its vendors also benefit with multiple agency opportunities in one place. The City & County of Denver Purchasing Division's goal is to serve the public, agencies and our suppliers in an efficient, professional, and ethical manner- joining the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System allows us to stay true to our goals and continue to improve upon our efficiency.
The Rocky Mountain bid system was developed and is maintained by IPT by BidNet, which manages 15 local government purchasing groups throughout the United States providing over 800 local government agencies a purchasing and vendor management solution.
Vendors who provide goods and services can register for the system to receive bid opportunities from the City and County of Denver and the system’s other local Colorado government agencies. We urge all vendors to register to continue to receive bids from Denver departments without missing an opportunity. Vendor registration is free; however, vendors may elect to receive automatic e-mail notification of all open solicitations matching their vendor profile for an annual fee of $89.95. If a vendor does not select the upgraded option, it is the responsibility of the vendor to monitor the website regularly in order to be aware of business opportunities and review changes or addendums to bids, quotes, and proposals. Vendors who upgrade to receive email notifications will receive opportunities matching their business goods/services provided automatically. Vendors can register online at http://www.RockyMountainBidSystem.com to receive bid opportunities from Denver and the 79 other Rocky Mountain region local government agencies.
