Procurement Services (BidSync)

Administration icon Project Name: Procurement Services (BidSync)
 



Overview/Program Description:

BidSync is a private vendor that provides end-to-end procurement and bid notification solutions. BidSync allows courts to reach a wider audience for solicitations, potentially lowering contract and procurement costs. For the San Diego Superior Court, before using this vendor, court staff would post solicitations to the court's website and would send notifications to a vendor list, which was not the most efficient way of advertising. Now with BidSync, notifications regarding open bids are sent to BidSync's pool of vendors, which is much larger than the court's, resulting in solicitations reaching a much wider pool, in a more efficient manner.

Program Benefits/Savings:

BidSync delivers bid notifications directly to users via e-mail or text. Purchasing staff can see real-time results of who has viewed and downloaded solicitation documents. Courts generally receive a greater number of proposals in response to solicitations now than before using this vendor, and in some instances, bids are coming in lower than they have historically.
