“We strive to be as transparent as possible and to give all the information we have about the bid opportunity and the procurement process to all our vendors. By becoming a part of the California Purchasing Group, we can provide all the important and necessary information instantly to our vendors, everything they need is in one spot, and they don’t need to contact us to find out details; they can log in and view everything in real-time. This has allowed us to create a more seamless bid process and has provided more participation from vendors across the state,” stated Mary Horger, Financial Services Manager of the City of Ukiah.
