We are so pleased to announce that The City of Beaverton Oregon is the third subscriber to PDXProcurementSearch.com!
Each time an agency joins PDXProcurementSearch.com and OregonProcurementSearch.com, the world of discovering government contracts gets just a little bit easier for the average small business. Why?
Because instead of depending on separate marketing teams to get the word out about procurement opportunities individually, now all marketing teams at each agency can point small businesses to one place to get updates about any opportunity they have.
This reduces wasted time and effort on the part of the agency marketing teams, and on the part of the small business owner. It’s a win-win for everyone!
This wonderful partnership will help the City of Beaverton get more MWESB contracts by putting their contracting opportunities in front of people on Twitter, on PDXProcurementSearch.com and OregonProcurementSearch.com. Follow PDXProcurement on Twitter and follow ORProcurement Search on Twitter.
We are so grateful to Mayor Danny Doyle, Purchasing Agent Terry Muralt, and the finance team at the City of Beaverton for investing in getting their bids in front of a more diverse group of suppliers.
Of course, just discovering the opportunity is the first step.
What can a small business do to get a contract once they’ve discovered an opportunity they’d like to bid on?
Next, you’ve got to see if you’re qualified to submit a bid.
