Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden has officially joined the Florida Purchasing Group, one of Bidnet Direct’s regional e-procurement solutions, providing vendors throughout Florida easy online access to its upcoming solicitations. Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden invites all vendors to register online at http://www.bidnetdirect.com/florida/fairchildgarden.

The regional purchasing group connects local public agencies with vendors looking to do business with the government. Registered vendors of the Florida Purchasing Group can gain access to a variety of bid opportunities throughout Florida in one easy-to-use location. By posting upcoming bids and RFPs on the Florida Purchasing Group, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden ensures an entire community of vendors can view their solicitation, download documents, and receive notification of addenda, helping to streamline their procurement process.

“Distributing bids manually made it challenging to reach additional vendors. Sometimes there would be instances where only a small number of vendors would submit a proposal. But with the Florida Purchasing Group, we’re able to post our bids in one spot with all the information associated with that opportunity and the number of vendors we now reach has increased dramatically, creating the vendor competition we aim for,” said Rose Ricks, Science Village Assistant of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden when asked why their department decided to join the Florida Purchasing Group. “It also allows for vendors to see whether or not their pricing is competitive against other businesses and gives them a chance to adjust for future opportunities.”

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden invites all local vendors to visit http://www.bidnetdirect.com/florida/fairchildgarden and register to receive access to its upcoming solicitations as well as the upcoming bids and RFPs from 53 other public agencies participating on the Florida Purchasing Group. Registered vendors have the option to upgrade their service to receive customized bid alerts, notification of term contract expiration, and notification of a real-time addendum.
