Peel District School Board Selects Biddingo for its Electronic Tendering

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, ON, August 18, 2010 – Effective today, The Peel District School Board is modernizing the way it does business with its suppliers by posting bid opportunities online using Biddingo.com. The board will no longer be distributing its bid requirements in its traditional hardcopy. This transformation will expedite bid awareness and inform suppliers of the opportunities. Suppliers interested in doing business with the PDSB must be registered with Biddingo.com. To fill out a vendor application visit: www.biddingo.com/pdsb.

Biddingo is the industry leader in providing a complete electronic tendering solution to more than a thousand public-sector organizations (PSOs) including: provincial agencies, municipalities, school boards, colleges, universities, hospitals and healthcare agencies, housing corporations and many private-sector organizations across Canada. Some of these PSOs include: Ontario Realty Corporation (ORC), Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO), Toronto Community Housing Corporation, HealthPRO, City of Mississauga, and Sick Kids Hospital.

The PDSB chose Biddingo as its platform to distribute bid opportunities and to manage the Board's vendors by inviting them to participate in the bidding process. Biddingo's online platform, extensive supplier database and a dedicated research and development team help the board by providing real-time notification of bid opportunities to suppliers in the marketplace.

By using Biddingo, the PDSB ensures that all suppliers wanting to participate in their bidding process have the opportunity, hence creating a fair, open and transparent approach. To ensure all businesses wanting to know about bidding opportunities are aware, Biddingo is continually expanding its buying partners and increasing its supplier database. Biddingo's General Manager, Daryl Chong notes, "Sometimes only large corporations with the strong financial capital and in-house research department find out about tenders, but posting the bid scope and documents on our website provides awareness to businesses of all sizes. Biddingo's electronic tendering service allows all companies, regardless of size, to instantly access bids and participate to get a piece of the pie. Our team actively sources new suppliers to provide the best competition in pricing and quality. Biddingo is a proven and trusted system used by many PSOs to streamline their purchasing process to generate ease of use for their suppliers."
