Fulton County announced today that since joining the Georgia Purchasing Group in April 2020, nearly 300 business opportunities have been distributed to registered vendors. Fulton County procurement utilizes BidNet Direct to post, distribute and manage RFPs, quotes, addenda and awards online. Fulton County invites all vendors to register for easy access to all open solicitations at https://www.bidnetdirect.com/georgia/fultoncounty.
The Georgia Purchasing Group streamlines the creation and issuance of bid requests, supplier response submission and the awarding of bids. By providing a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities, Fulton County and other local government agencies throughout Georgia can minimize costs and time delays associated with the procurement process while also helping the vendor community be alerted to targeted, local business opportunities.
Fulton County has issued 289 solicitations since joining the platform. Electronic bid submission capabilities along with online questions and answers have allowed the County and interested bidders a simpler way to do business from anywhere, even still working remotely.
“We have improved our efficiency by using the Georgia Purchasing Group and look forward to being able to continue to do so in other areas of sourcing such as evaluating responses and contract management. In addition to our time savings internally, our valued vendors can now access not only our open bids, but those from other municipalities, counties and school districts throughout the state. We invite all of our current vendors to register,” stated Felicia Strong-Whitaker, CPPO, MCA, Director of Purchasing & Contract Compliance at Fulton County Government.
