City of Austin, TX, Overhauls Solicitation Development with OpenGov

Looking for a modern solution for solicitation development, the City of Austin, TX was on the hunt for a new system that would remove manual steps and provide greater flexibility. After exhaustive research, the City turned to OpenGov, a trusted partner with which the City already worked.

The City of Austin, renowned for its tech-forward approach in serving its community, found itself held back by the customized, homegrown system that it had created to intake bids from vendors. In its search for a new approach, the City prioritized finding a comprehensive software solution that could streamline its solicitation process, unifying the multiple systems it currently uses. OpenGov Procurement emerged as the top choice, distinguished by its unique capability to generate documents from questions and the strong existing relationship the City had with the OpenGov team.

With OpenGov Procurement in place for solicitation development, the City of Austin anticipates a positive shift in how it processes vendor bids and solicitations. Not only will this move centralize operations into a singular system, removing the burden from departments and simplifying vendor interactions, but the previous time-consuming methods of Word/Excel solicitation development will become a thing of the past. Additionally, with OpenGov overseeing the vendor portal, the IT department can redirect its focus to other pressing matters.

The City of Austin joins thousands of public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
