Purchasing Supplier Networking Event on April 11
The Gwinnett County Purchasing Division is inviting prospective vendors to attend its 13th Annual Supplier Networking Event on April 11 to meet various government buyers and learn about opportunities to do business with the County.
The meet-and-greet will allow businesses to connect and establish relationships with County departments, learn about County purchasing processes, and find out about current and upcoming projects.
Prospective vendors can meet with buyers and contracting officers from the Purchasing Division, representatives from various County departments, and agencies from other jurisdictions, including cities, neighboring counties, and the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce. The Gwinnett County Purchasing Division is always available to meet with prospective vendors, but this event allows vendors to network with various representatives all in one place in a short period of time.
“We view this event as a win-win for the County and the business community,” said Purchasing Director Bryant Davis. “This event will provide businesses who want to sell their goods and services to the County with an opportunity to meet staff members face to face and learn about our procurement process. Encouraging vendors to bid on County projects increases competition on our solicitations, which helps save taxpayer dollars.”
Attendees can register for this event online here and view current open projects and business opportunities along with a how-to manual for doing business with Gwinnett County.
The networking event will run from 8:30am to 11:00am at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, located at 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville. The event is free.
