Jersey City Public Schools Partner with OpenGov to Comply with eProcurement Software Legislation

When the State of New Jersey passed eProcurement legislation, leaders from Jersey City Public Schools went on a hunt for an eProcurement partner. They found a perfect match with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s cities.

In 2021, the State of New Jersey adopted final regulations authorizing local governments and boards of education to use electronic procurement platforms. Jersey City Public School Purchasing officials were able to secure funds from the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) fund. That’s when they invested in OpenGov Procurement.

With OpenGov Procurement, the Public School system will be able to comply with the requirement that bids and proposals be requested through an online portal. Not only will the Public School system make the process more transparent, staff and buyers will be able to collaborate on key documents and track project statuses. What’s more, the portal provides a single source of truth for purchasing staff who will be able to view contracts and vendor spend. Vendors will enjoy being guided through the one-click submission process. The easy-to-use interface will likely attract more bidders, a big win for the school system.

Jersey City Public Schools 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.
