Purchasing Groups for all 50 states!

Purchasing Groups for all 50 states!

BidNet Direct has officially launched the remaining regional Purchasing Groups available to government agencies to streamline sourcing. With these 9 new Purchasing Groups, local government agencies throughout each state will now have access to BidNet Direct’s bid and vendor management platform, allowing them to distribute their solicitations to the tens of thousands of vendors already registered. Our newest regional Purchasing Groups cover the following states:

• Alaska
• Delaware
• Hawaii
• Maine
• Montana
• New Hampshire
• North Dakota
• South Dakota
• Vermont

All 50 States

The addition of our newest batch of Purchasing Groups means we now offer coverage to all 50 states! BidNet Direct now offers it’s e-sourcing platform to local government agencies across the country. In addition to the benefits of like-minded government agencies and a regional bid library, the state-by-state approach offers the vendor community direct access to exclusive government bid opportunities within specific state(s) or region(s). By using this regional approach, the platform ensures that bid opportunities are available only to vendors who can participate, while also ensuring that vendors aren’t being shown opportunities outside of their scope of work.

Exclusive bid opportunities for vendors

Vendors now have access to not only the continuous 48 states, but also to local government business opportunities in Hawaii and Alaska. In fact, the Alaska Purchasing Group already has its first participating agency – Fairbanks Alaska Northstar Borough! Registration to any of the new purchasing groups is simple and straight-forward for the vendor community, and allows vendors direct access to self-published solicitations and documents in addition to statewide government opportunities.

No Cost, Easy to Use Solution

We know that it can be difficult to find the budget to join an e-sourcing solution. BidNet Direct’s regional Purchasing Groups are available to all local government agencies at no cost. This gives your agency the ability to manage all of your solicitations and vendors within the platform, as well as access the existing extensive vendor pool, bid library, approval workflow, award management and more! The platform also has a no cost option available to your vendors, so you can maintain a fair and transparent purchasing process while expanding your vendor outreach and overall streamlining of your processes.
