My agency requires competitive bidding. Can I use this contract without going out to bid?
Yes. The contract was competitively bid by Fairfax County. Through the Joint Powers Authority or an inter-local agreement, local governments can "piggy-back" this competitively bid contract through U.S. Communities. This satisfies the competitive bid requirements in most states. See state by state laws on intergovernmental purchasing.
What does a government agency need to do in order to participate?
Complete the free online registration found on the U.S. Communities website. During the registration process, you will be asked to mark suppliers you are interested in. The suppliers that you select will contact you with detailed pricing and ordering information.
Is there a fee associated with joining U.S. Communities?
No, there are no costs or user fees to the local agency to participate or register.
Does this really save time and money?
The time and effort associated with creating and managing solicitations can be high depending on the size and complexity. U.S. Communities allows agencies to bypass the bidding process utilizing a competitively solicited contract thus reducing both direct and indirect procurement costs.
How do I know I’m getting competitive pricing?
This contract was competitively bid by Fairfax County ensuring that agencies are getting very competitive pricing on any size order.
How can my agency participate in the U.S. Communities program?
Complete the online registration.
Can more than one person at my agency register?
Yes, additional users can register by completing the standard registration process; the system will automatically unify all registrations that use the same TIN under one agency account. Alternately, existing users can add new users from within their account.
