Transparency-Focused Section Added to Purchasing Division Website
The Purchasing Division has recently added a section to its website, WVPurchasing.gov, focusing on transparency in the state government procurement process. The Transparency page contains data, reports, and publications related to procurements made under the Purchasing Division’s authority, as outlined in West Virginia Code, the West Virginia Code of State Rules, and the Purchasing Division Procedures Handbook.
The information organized on the Transparency page reflects the Purchasing Division’s goal of providing transparency to the citizens of West Virginia, other state agencies, and the vendor community. Sections of the Transparency page include the Notice of Centralized Award Report, the “Request an RFQ” form, a link to the West Virginia Purchasing Bulletin at wvOASIS.gov, a link to view vendor responses to solicitations that have been opened by the Purchasing Division, the Purchasing Division’s annual reports, a link to the West Virginia State Budget Office, and West Virginia Purchasing Bulletin Archives, which allows visitors to reference solicitations that were out for bid from 2006-2014.
