Companies Interested in Doing Business with Montgomery County Can Benefit by Attending Virtual ‘Procurement Fair’ on Wednesday, Dec. 15

Companies interested in potentially doing business with the Montgomery County Government and earning government contracts can learn about the process and opportunities available at a “Procurement Fair” that will be hosted virtually by the Office of Procurement from 8:30 a.m.-noon on Wednesday, Dec. 15. There is no cost to attend the fair.

During the fair, contract administrators representing various County departments will discuss their expectations and the relevant solicitations.

Opening remarks for the fair will be offered by Director of the Office of Procurement Ash Shetty, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and Assistant Chief Administrative Officer Jake Weissmann.

“Last year, we hosted our inaugural ‘Reverse Trade Fair’ virtually to resounding success,” said Procurement Director Shetty. “Vendors were pleased to access the information virtually. Our post-attendee survey showed that 92 percent of attendees found the information helpful, and 93 percent of attendees thought the event was good, great or excellent. We look forward to this year’s event.”

John Gillick of the County’s Department of Technology Enterprise Business Solutions (TEBS) will make a presentation regarding information technology. Another presentation will be made by Ijeoma Oji of the County’s Department of Health and Human Services.

The fair also will include a panel discussion addressing government procurement opportunities. The agencies represented on the panel will include the County Government, Montgomery County Public Schools and Montgomery College. In addition, representatives on the panel will be from the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission and from the City of Rockville, which is a municipality.
