TUCKAHOE, NY--(Marketwired - January 06, 2016) - Village of Tuckahoe announced today that it has joined the Empire State Purchasing Group, a regional purchasing group that helps local governments post, distribute and manage RFPs, quotes, addendums and awards online. BidNet's New York purchasing group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, any addenda and award information from 194 participating agencies from across New York State.

Village of Tuckahoe joined the purchasing group in January, 2016. In joining, Village of Tuckahoe has become the 194th participating local government agency utilizing the system to streamline the purchasing process. The Empire State Purchasing Group is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local New York State government agencies a method to minimize costs and time delays associated with the procurement process.

In joining, Village of Tuckahoe looks to save time, increase competition and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.

Village of Tuckahoe now has access to an extensive vendor pool, thereby enhancing competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the Empire State Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to respond to bids with local government agencies can register online: Village of Tuckahoe 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. 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.

Registered vendors can access bids, related documents, 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 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.
