Local Vendor Preference

Sporting, recreation and cultural facilities are vital to the maintenance of healthy communities. Investment in these projects requires not only the support of regional governments, but also from citizens and community groups who will ultimately benefit from the initiatives. As a result, vendors can often benefit from local vendor preference policies when bidding on sport, recreation and park bids in the geographic area where they are located.

“Great bid service! We have utilized BidNet for several years now. We are amazed at the number of projects related to our industry that it delivers daily. The daily Bid Alert® Bulletin is convenient and, as a manufacturer with nation-wide distribution, the access it provides to several e-procurement sites is extremely valuable. BidNet continues to deliver information related to more projects than services that cost over 10x as much annually! In addition to the great system BidNet is, their customer service is top-notch and greatly appreciated.”
