Mahopac Central School District Joins 198 Local Agencies on the Empire State Purchasing Group

MAHOPAC, NY--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - Mahopac Central School District announced its joining of the Empire State Purchasing Group which connects 198 existing participating agencies from across New York to a large vendor pool for bid distribution and management. BidNet's New York purchasing group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, any addenda and award information from 198 participating agencies from across New York.

Mahopac Central School District joined the purchasing group in May 2016. In joining, Mahopac Central School District hopes to utilize the system to streamline the purchasing process. 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 time delays associated with the procurement process. Mahopac Central School District was distributing bids and managing the procurement process manually before joining the system. In joining, Mahopac Central School District looks to save time, reach out to more vendors automatically and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.

Mahopac Central School District has access to the Empire State Purchasing Group vendor pool which will enhance competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the Empire State Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to do business with Mahopac Central School District can register online: www.EmpireStateBidSystem.com. Mahopac Central School District invites all current vendors not already registered on the purchasing group to do so today.

Registered vendors can access all open bids, related documents and files, additional addendum 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. A robust NIGP code category list allows vendors registering to find the correct codes in order to receive matched bid information.

"It is not only our purchasing department that looks forward to the benefits of using the Empire State Purchasing Group, but our valued vendors can now save time and access not only our open bids, but those from other agencies throughout the state. We invite all of our current vendors to register on the Empire State Purchasing Group or contact BidNet's vendor support team with any questions," stated Mr. Vincent Espinosa, Purchasing Agent of Mahopac CSD.
