Vendor Instructions

Georgetown-Scott County Parks and Recreation Purchasing Division is proud to announce that we will now be using Public Purchase, a web based e-Procurement service.    In order to begin, or continue to, receive bid notifications as a current vendor you must register with this new system. This process will only take a few minutes. The two-step registration process/instructions are detailed below in the Instructions section.

We will make the move from our current e-procurement system to Public Purchase effective [DATE, 20XX].  Please register as soon as possible and no later than [DATE, 20XX] so that you have uninterrupted access to our bids and the notification of our bids.

It is important that this second part of the registration is complete or you will not receive notifications of upcoming quote opportunities from the Georgetown – Scott County Parks and Recreation. It is your responsibility to keep the information up to date, particularly the contacts and email addresses.

 Why the switch?

Using this service will make the quoting process easier for us and our suppliers.  The Public Purchase eProcurement System was designed exclusively for use by Government Agencies and their Vendors.

Benefits to Us

This eProcurement system is compliant with all Federal and State regulations, which determine the required procedures for Government Agency purchasing practices.  This service will also create an up to date vendor database, which will be hosted on Public Purchase’s servers and will allow suppliers to easily update and change their information as needed.

What benefits to You?

This eProcurement system will create a single location in which to view open Requests for Quotation and award information for previous RFQ’s issued through the Public Purchase website. This system    will also provide you with automatic notification and transmittal of bid solicitations to vendors.  In addition, Public Purchase gives you access to bid opportunities with other government entities.  All of this is provided at no charge to you.

If you need any assistance with this process please contact Public Purchase at support@publicpurchase.com.  Or use their Live Chat during business hours. It can be found in the upper left corner of the web site.
