MONUMENT, Colo. (PRWEB) September 05, 2018
Today, Tri-Lakes Monument FPD has officially joined the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System to help simplify their bid and RFP distribution process. The Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System is one of BidNet’s 30 regional purchasing groups throughout the country which offers participating local government agencies an e-procurement solution. Tri-Lakes Monument FPD invites all vendors to register online with the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System to access its upcoming solicitations by visiting http://www.bidnetdirect.com/colorado.
With the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, vendors register to access one centralized location with opportunities from over 200 participating agencies throughout Colorado and Wyoming. By posting upcoming solicitations to the regional purchasing group, in addition to their website, Tri-Lakes Monument FPD hopes to make it easier for more vendors to access their documents. They also hope to expand the reach of their solicitations to a more diverse vendor pool. Unlike the prior process of only publishing bids to a webpage, the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System provides a method to track all bid activity, including the details of vendors who have received or downloaded a bid.
“Sometimes distributing a bid on our site just isn’t enough,” says Christopher Truty, Fire Chief of Tri-Lakes Monument FPD. “Posting the bid for an entire regional community of vendors to see will help us reach more variety of qualified local suppliers. We like that with the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System we can quantifiably track the level of diversity.”
Tri-Lakes Monument FPD invites all local vendors to visit http://www.bidnetdirect.com/colorado and register to receive access to its upcoming solicitations as well as the upcoming bids and RFPs from 216 other public agencies participating on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System. Registered vendors also gain access to a team of experienced customer service support representatives and can upgrade their service to receive customized bid alerts, advanced notice of term contract expiration, and notification of a recently posted addendum.
