Idaho’s Ada County Highway District to Streamline Processes with OpenGov’s Online Procurement Software

Idaho’s Ada County Highway District needed a way to streamline its procurement process, so it turned to a trusted partner, OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s cities and counties, for online procurement software.

The Highway District was already an OpenGov Budgeting & Planning partner, so when officials searched for a fully automated, online bidding and vendor management system, OpenGov was on the call list. Highway District leaders also carefully evaluated another eprocurement system but ultimately chose to invest in OpenGov Procurement

Using OpenGov Procurement, the Highway District will be able to enhance vendor relations by:

  • Housing all solicitations in one portal, making it easy for vendors to submit bids and communicate with reviewers online
  • Giving vendors the ability to follow updates to current solicitations and receive amendments and addenda automatically
  • Giving vendors the opportunity to subscribe to bid opportunity alerts

By going completely paperless, Highway District staff will spend less time writing, releasing, and evaluating bids, giving them more time to focus on higher priority projects. Plus, thanks to better vendor relations, the Highway District is likely to receive significantly more supplier submissions.

The Ada County Highway District joins more than 1,100 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
