Four Mile Fire Protection District Will Now Be Placing Their Bid Opportunities on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) - Four Mile Fire Protection District announced it has joined the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System and will be publishing and distributing upcoming bid opportunities on the system. BidNet's Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System connects 160 participating agencies from across Colorado to a large vendor pool and streamlines the bid and vendor management process. BidNet's Colorado purchasing group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, any addenda and award information from 160 participating agencies statewide.

Four Mile Fire Protection District joined the purchasing group in March. Four Mile Fire Protection District will utilize the system to streamline the purchasing process, including bid management, bid distribution and vendor relations. Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local Colorado government agencies the tools needed to minimize costs and save time throughout the purchasing process.

Before joining the system, Four Mile Fire Protection District was distributing bids and managing the procurement process manually. This traditional, "paper" procurement process is being replaced by local government agencies throughout Colorado. In joining the purchasing group, Four Mile Fire Protection District looks to save time, reach out to more vendors automatically and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.

Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System expands an agency's vendor pool and enhances vendor competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, all vendors looking to do business with Four Mile Fire Protection District can register online: Four Mile Fire Protection District invites all interested bidders to register today.

Registered vendors can access all open bids, related documents and files, additional addendum and award information. In addition, the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System 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 Four Mile Fire Protection District bid opportunities, but all participating agency bids.

Vendors may register on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System 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.
