City of Mississauga Takes a Giant Leap in Strategic Procurement

The City has partnered with an e-tendering solutions provider in a bid to induce greater financial, environmental, and operational efficiencies in its purchasing process

Toronto, ON, November 17, 2010 - The City of Mississauga has partnered with Biddingo.com, Canada’s leading electronic tendering solutions provider.  Mississauga’s continuous effort to be open, fair and transparent has led the City to move forward and utilize the most effective and efficient method to advertise and distribute bid documents – Biddingo.com.  All of the City’s procurement related information will now be available at its central procurement page:  www.Biddingo.com/Mississauga.

Vendors will no longer need to drive to the purchasing desk to purchase procurement documents, or to request amendments via email.  City of Mississauga’s bid advertisements, electronic bid documents, document takers lists, and bid results will now be available through the procurement page.  Suppliers interested in doing business with the City must complete its Online Vendor Application form on this page; the City will now use this database to directly notify and invite suppliers to bid.

“The City of Mississauga has chosen Biddingo because of its proven track record of providing a high degree of professional service to Public Sector Organizations (PSOs) like ourselves. The City is looking forward to utilizing Biddingo’s technology to reduced administrative tasks through the automation of our tendering process. The ability to download bid documents electronically starting with simple straight-forward procurements, will greatly improve customer service to our vendors today and it is our intention to move our more complex procurements to Biddingo in the near future. With Biddingo’s service, Mississauga will definitely become a leader in automation, and become a model for other municipalities to follow” explains Marlene M. Knight, Manager of Materiel Management at the City of Mississauga.
