The eProcurement Portal is a web-based application that promotes economic development as it increases vendor awareness and participation. Now, all RFIs and RFPs are listed in one location, ensuring vendors a fair and transparent opportunity to bid on government proposals. Vendors sign up with the eProcurement Portal and create alerts when an RFI or RFP is listed that matches their criteria. Bid post dates, RFP due dates, procurement officer contact information, and more is all posted to ensure a fair and open bid process. As more vendors bid on projects, the result is better prices and quality, helping reduce overall procurement costs.
