On the Georgia Purchasing Group, vendors seeking business with 20 participating agencies can register online to gain access to a single point of entry for opportunities throughout Georgia. By posting upcoming bids and RFPs on the Georgia Purchasing Group, the City of Rome ensures an entire community of vendors can view their solicitation, download documents, and receive notification of addenda. The vendors self-register and ensure their contact information is up to date.

“Because we aren’t the only agency posting and distributing bids, the Georgia Purchasing Group provides the City of Rome more vendor competition, which we hope will help cut costs,” said Becky Smyth, Purchasing Director of the City of Rome when asked why their department decided to join the Georgia Purchasing Group. “We also like that it can help our current vendors expand their business opportunities.”

The City of Rome invites all local vendors to visit and register to receive access to its upcoming solicitations as well as the upcoming bids and RFPs from 19 other public agencies participating on the Georgia Purchasing Group. Registered vendors have the option to upgrade their service to receive customized bid alerts, notification of term contract expiration, and notification of a real-time addendum.
