City of Glen Cove joins Empire State Purchasing Group

Posted

The City of Glen Cove has joined the Empire State Purchasing Group and will be publishing and distributing upcoming bid opportunities on the system.

BidNet’s Empire State Purchasing Group connects participating agencies from across New York to a large vendor pool and streamlines the bid and vendor management process. BidNet’s New York purchasing group provides notifications to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, as well as any addenda and award information from participating agencies from across New York.

The Empire State Purchasing Group is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local New York government agencies the tools needed to minimize costs and save time throughout the purchasing process. The Empire State Purchasing Group expands an agency’s vendor pool and enhances vendor competition without increasing distribution costs.

In addition to the existing vendors on the Empire State Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to do business with the City of Glen Cove can register online. The city is inviting all interested bidders to register today.

Registered vendors can access all open bids, related documents and files, additional addenda and award information. In addition, the Empire State Purchasing Group offers a value-added service to notify vendors of new bids targeted to their industry, all addenda and advance notification of expiring term contracts. Registered vendors have access to not only the City of Glen Cove bid opportunities, but all participating agency bids.

“Our vendors can now save time and paper,” said Yelena Quiles, the purchasing agent for Glen Cove. “They not only have direct access to our open bids, but those from other agencies throughout the state.”

All vendors can register on the Empire State Purchasing Group to begin to receive business opportunities.

Other local New York government agencies looking to switch from a manual bid process, can contact the Empire State Purchasing Group for a demonstration of the no-cost sourcing solution.

The City of Glen Cove is now using Microsoft Teams so vendors can attend BID openings virtually, as per the executive order signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo. For more information, visit http://www.glencove-li.us/bidrfp/
