13 New Governments Join the DemandStar Network in October

November 5, 2019

SEATTLE, Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DemandStar, the online network connecting local and national suppliers with government procurement officers, beat their own record in October for adding new governments to their network with 13. These new agencies, including cities, counties, schools, hospitals and health districts can now broadcast bids, quotes and RFPs through DemandStar and connect with a greater number of businesses who can offer solutions to their unique needs. DemandStar also welcomes 1,600 new businesses during the month of October.

“Local and state governments are understanding the impact DemandStar can have on their community’s growth,” said Ben Vaught, CEO of DemandStar. “They need more businesses, especially minority-owned businesses, to compete for the many opportunities available. The more businesses that compete for government contracts, the greater value governments can provide and at the best use of their resident’s tax dollars. With DemandStar, governments have wider access to businesses and can thus receive competitive bids to award the right business for the job.”
