The City of Dardenne Prairie Bid Opportunities On the Missouri Purchasing Group

DARDENNE PRAIRIE, MO--(Marketwired - April 26, 2016) - The City of Dardenne Prairie announced it has joined the Missouri Purchasing Group and will be publishing and distributing upcoming bid opportunities on the system. BidNet's Missouri Purchasing Group connects a growing list of participating agencies from across Missouri to a large vendor pool and streamlines the bid and vendor management process. BidNet's Missouri purchasing group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, any addenda and award information from participating agencies from across Missouri.

The City of Dardenne Prairie will utilize the purchasing group to streamline the purchasing process including bid management, bid distribution and vendor relations. The Missouri Purchasing Group is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local Missouri government agencies the tools needed to minimize costs and save time throughout the purchasing process.

Before joining the system, the city was distributing bids and managing the procurement process manually. The traditional, "paper" procurement process is being replaced by local government agencies throughout Missouri. In joining the purchasing group, the City of Dardenne Prairie looks to save time, reach out to more vendors automatically and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.

The Missouri Purchasing Group expands an agency's vendor pool and enhances vendor competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the Missouri Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to do businesses with the City of Dardenne Prairie can register online: www.BidNetDirect.com/Missouri. The City of Dardenne Prairie 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 Missouri 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 Dardenne Prairie bid opportunities, but all participating agency bids.

"Our valued vendors can now save time and paper. Plus they not only have direct access to our open bids, but those from other agencies throughout the state. We invite all of our current vendors to register on www.BidNetDirect.com/Missouri to start receiving business opportunities," stated Mathew Dewinters, Recreation Supervisor of the City of Dardenne Prairie.

Vendors may register on the Missouri Purchasing Group: www.BidNetDirect.com/Missouri. 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.
