Emergency Preparedness Solutions is a woman-owned small business based in Utica, NY. Founded in 2012, EPS specializes in emergency and disaster planning, training programs and emergency response exercises for clients in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Their goal as a company is to help prepare organizations to face emergency situations and to minimize impacts to lives, property, and finances. As someone who has previously worked for a New York state government agency, Tim Riecker, Emergency Preparedness Solutions’ Partner and Principal Consultant, is very familiar with government bidding and felt that pursuing government contracts would be the best way to grow the business and make a name for themselves in the emergency services market. At first, Riecker and his wife, Dr. Robin Voetterl-Riecker, did all the leg work associated with finding opportunities, spending countless hours searching through hundreds of bids to find anything relevant to their service offer. After realizing that this approach was too time-consuming, they decided to look into companies that could research opportunities for them and find government bids and RFPs that EPS could submit proposals on. After researching several different bidding services, they decided that BidNet was the best fit for their business. EPS’ owners like the fact that BidNet is based in New York and has better prices than their competitors and is known to provide targeted bid opportunities.
