Berkshire Regional Planning Commission (BRPC) administers the Berkshire Regional Group Purchasing Program (BRGPP) on behalf of all 32 Berkshire County municipalities.
*NEW!* BRPC has partnered with OpenGov and is excited to announce our transition from a paper-based bid solicitation process to a fully automated, web-based electronic bidding and vendor management system. Below are the bids and proposals currently being solicited and the corresponding closing dates for each. Our new e-Procurement Portal will allow interested parties to do the following:
● Register to bid and receive notifications of future opportunities in the e-Procurement Portal by selecting Subscribe to create an account.
● Follow updates to existing solicitations by finding the solicitation and clicking the Follow button. This will allow all interested parties to receive amendments and addenda automatically.
● Submit questions and receive answers for open solicitations.
● Guide vendors through the process of responding electronically to RFPs, bids, etc. to ensure submissions have been accurately completed.
● Ultimately, be your one location for all bid opportunities issued by the BRPC.
THERE IS NO COST FOR VENDORS TO REGISTER WITH OpenGov.
BRGPP staff is available to assist the municipalities with joint procurement of fuel and road maintenance products and individual procurement activities.
More about BRGPP: The program coordinates the Massachusetts Department of Transportation Chapter 90 pre-qualifications, preparing, advertising, and issuing bid documents, holding bid openings, tabulating bid results, checking references and debarment lists, insurance and bonding requirements, awarding contracts, managing the contract execution process, and record keeping. Invitations to Bid for each product allow vendors to offer products and services based on the municipalities’ location in Northern, Central, or Southern Berkshire County, or on any combination of the three. These BRGPP services are designed to provide municipalities with the lowest prices available, while also relieving municipal staff of performing the necessary activities required for bidding products and services under the Massachusetts procurement laws.
