Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District Joins The Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System

Pueblo, CO (PRWEB) - The Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District, acting by and through its water activity enterprise, officially announced today it has joined the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, an e-sourcing solution from bidnet direct that provides nearly 350 local government agencies throughout Colorado and Wyoming a solution for bid and vendor management. The Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District invites all potential vendors to register online with http://www.bidnetdirect.com/colorado/secwcd to access its upcoming solicitations.

Prior to joining the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District published solicitations directly to their own website. This process will continue with notices, but all vendors must register to the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System to download documents and view the full solicitation details. By publishing future solicitations on the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System, the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District will be able to track every step of the process and have a much more transparent bid process. Participating government agencies using the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System can track full business details of the vendors who view an RFP, which ones download the related documents, and if needed, whether they saw an addendum.

“With the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System we can even see whether or not a vendor downloading our bids is a minority business, small business, or local,” says Kevin Meador, Principal Engineer of the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District. “This level of tracking, both pre-and post-award, was just not possible from our website and is very helpful for auditing and showing due diligence.”

The Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District invites all local vendors to receive access to its upcoming solicitations by joining the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System. Vendor benefits of registering on http://www.bidnetdirect.com/colorado/secwcd include:

  • Centralized Location to Opportunities from all 344 Participating Agencies
  • Notification of Term – Contract Expiration
  • Bid Alerts Customized to the Vendors' Products or Services Provided
  • Full Customer Service Support

The Project also provides flood control for the area and is designed to maintain or improve fish and wildlife habitats.
