Town of Severance Joins the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System

SEVERANCE, CO--(Marketwired - May 05, 2016) - Town of Severance announced today that it has joined the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, a regional purchasing group that helps local governments post, distribute and manage RFPs, quotes, addendums and awards online. BidNet's Colorado purchasing group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, any addenda and award information from 166 participating agencies from across the state.

Town of Severance joined the purchasing group in May. In joining, the Town of Severance has become the 166th participating local government agency utilizing the system to streamline the purchasing process. The Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local Colorado government agencies a method to minimize costs and time delays associated with the procurement process. The Town of Severance was distributing bids and managing the procurement process manually before joining the system. In joining, the Town of Severance looks to save time, increase competition and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.

Town of Severance now has access to an extensive vendor pool, thereby enhancing competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, all vendors looking to respond to bids with local government agencies can register online: www.RockyMountainBidSystem.com. The Town of Severance invites all current vendors not already registered on the purchasing group to do so today. Vendor registration is easy and takes only a few minutes online.

Registered vendors can access bids, related documents, 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 associated with those bids and advance notice of term contract expiration. A robust NIGP code category list allows vendors registering to find the correct codes and receive matched bids.

Vendors may register on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System by visiting www.RockyMountainBidSystem.com. 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.

"The Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing system will provide the Town of Severance with excellent opportunities to reach potential vendors and partners that traditional methods would otherwise not allowed. In addition, this will help streamline the Town's process for bids and quotes while also allowing for complete transparency of our RFP and RFQ process. The Town of Severance is very pleased to be partnering with BidNet through the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing system and is excited to be a part of growing regional group," said Nicholas J. Wharton, Assistant Town Administrator.
