Platte Canyon and Southwest Metropolitan Water and Sanitation Districts Join the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System for Automated Distribution

LITTLETON, CO--(Marketwired - April 07, 2016) - Today Platte Canyon and Southwest Metropolitan Water and Sanitation Districts 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 17 regional purchasing groups throughout the country which offers participating local government agencies an e-procurement solution. Platte Canyon and Southwest Metropolitan Water and Sanitation Districts invite all vendors to register online with the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System to access its upcoming solicitations.

With the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, vendors register to access one centralized location with opportunities from 162 participating agencies throughout Colorado. By posting upcoming solicitations to the regional purchasing group, Platte Canyon and Southwest Metropolitan Water and Sanitation Districts hope 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 through the legal section of a local newspaper or mailing directly to known vendors, 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 through a local newspaper just isn't enough," says Ashley Dalton, Assistant Manager of Platte Canyon and Southwest Metropolitan Water and Sanitation Districts. "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."
