How much further can you initiatives build trust and promote a sense of community?
What if you could bring greater diversity to your procurement strategy?

What if you could do all this and save time?

“We had to write up an RFP for a technical project that was daunting to write up. Using Demandstar, we researched to see what other agencies had published a similar request and found one that we could use as a template – and cut our time into a fraction of what it would have taken”

This is what a group of procurement professionals in Florida wondered in 1998 when they decided that the best way to reach more qualified suppliers was to pool their procurement information so that everyone might obtain better products and services at better rates.

BOOM. In a bright, teal flash, DemandStar was born!
