Aggregated Purchasing - U.S. Communities
Does the thought of yet another RFP make you heave a wearying sigh? You know what’s coming. The hours of market research, collecting requirements, creating and submitting the RFP, interviewing vendors, whittling down your final choices, and presenting the options to city council. Just to legally purchase something that is common, routine, and something that cities have purchased many times before.
Instead, why not use Omnia Partners, Public Sector? Established by public agencies, Omnia Partners, Public Sector (formally U.S. Communities):
Reduces the cost of certain purchased goods and services. Expert professionals have already vetted the vendors and determined the lowest price points.
Streamlines your purchasing process. Avoid individually researching, sourcing, and bidding out contracts when others have already done the groundwork and established the right price for you.
Meets all legal purchasing requirements. Eliminate lengthy and complex RFP processes while still adhering strictly to the law. In other words, Omnia Partners, Public Sector has done all of the hard work for you.
Omnia Partners, Public Sector bids each contract that it administers through a local government agency to ensure that all governmental purchasing rules are followed and competitive pricing is established.
