In addition to the time savings we anticipate, our vendors will also benefit from registering in one location for all local bid opportunities.
VERONA, N.J. (PRWEB) July 24, 2018
The Township of Verona announced today that it has joined the New Jersey Purchasing Group, a regional purchasing group that helps local governments post, distribute and manage RFPs, quotes, addendums and awards online. BidNet’s New Jersey Purchasing Group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, and any addenda and award information from nearly 20 participating agencies from across New Jersey. The Township of Verona invites all vendors to register online at http://www.bidnetdirect.com/new-jersey.
The Township of Verona joined the purchasing group in July. In joining, the Township of Verona has become the 16th participating local government agency utilizing the system to streamline their purchasing process. The New Jersey Purchasing Group is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local New Jersey government agencies a method to minimize costs and time delays associated with the procurement process. The Township of Verona was distributing bids and managing their procurement process manually before joining the system. In joining, the Township of Verona looks to save time, increase competition and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.
The Township of Verona now has access to an extensive vendor pool, thereby enhancing competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the New Jersey Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to respond to bids with local government agencies can register online: http://www.bidnetdirect.com/new-jersey. The Township of Verona invites all current vendors not already registered on the purchasing group to do so today. Vendor registration is easy and takes only a few minutes online.
Registered vendors can access bids, related documents, addendum and award information. In addition, the New Jersey Purchasing Group offers a value-added service to notify vendors of new bids targeted to their industry, all addenda associated with those bids and advance notice of term contract expiration. A robust NIGP code category list allows vendors registering to find the correct codes and receive matched bids.
“By using the New Jersey Purchasing Group, our valued vendors can now access not only our open bids, but those from other municipalities, counties and school districts throughout the state. In addition to the time savings we anticipate, our vendors will also benefit from registering in one location for all local bid opportunities. We invite all of our current vendors to register or contact the vendor support team with any questions,” stated Matthew Cavallo, Township Manager of the Township of Verona.
Vendors may register on the New Jersey Purchasing Group: http://www.bidnetdirect.com/new-jersey. BidNet’s vendor support team is available to answer any questions regarding the registration process or the bid system at 800-835-4603 option 2.
