Henrico County, Virginia wins award for its online vendor management and sourcing system powered by eBid eXchange
Henrico County, Virginia has won the 2014 National Association of Counties (NACO) for their Online Construction Document Management System web portal. Powered by eBid eXchange, the portal allows contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers to view and download plans at their convenience.
By providing complete sets of drawings, project manuals, addenda, and other contract documents online, printing and mailing costs are substantially reduced while giving project managers insights into what documents were accessed by whom and when. The site also lets Henrico County automatically post project planholder lists so that prime and subcontractors can network for current and future projects. Henrico County also maximizes competition through the increased visibility of bid opportunities and easy access to construction documents.
