Hartsdale, NY (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Interactive Procurement Technologies by BidNet (IPT) welcomes the Greenburgh Central School District #7 (GC7) to the Empire State Purchasing Group.
Greenburgh Central School District No. 7 is located 25 miles north of New York City with a total area of 8 square miles and with a population of approximately 20,000 residents. GC7 joins the 139 other government agencies on the Empire State Purchasing Group to post requests for bids, proposals and quotes. The School District joins the eProcurement Network to help lower its costs through shared resources throughout the state of New York.
As agencies across New York State are faced with shrinking budgets, eProcurement networks such as the Empire State Purchasing Group provide the government with a way to lower costs by pooling resources and process automation.
“The benefits of participating in the New York procurement network and sharing resources with other agencies are tremendous”, said Mr. Ronald O. Ross, Superintendent of the Greenburgh Central School District No. 7. “As part of the Empire State Purchasing Group system we will be able to lower costs, which is critical in the current economic climate,” Mr. Ross added.
Vendors of the district will receive information on how they can register for the system. “The online system is easy for our staff and vendors to use, while minimizing costs, improving process efficiency and transparency,” said Mr. Ross.
“It’s a win-win situation for the district and its vendors—the vendors have free, centralized access to bid opportunities from multiple agencies, while we benefit from increased vendor competition and process automation,” Mr. Ross said.
