City Transitioning to E-Bids and Electronic Bid Notification

Branson Logo City of Branson - NEWSFLASH

In order to save taxpayer money and to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by minimizing physical contact, the Branson Board of Aldermen approved an update to the municipal code that will allow the city to move to electronic bidding (E-bidding) to promote open competition through the bidding process.

The Branson Board of Aldermen passed Bill No. 5845 amending Chapter 2 section 354 and 355 of the Branson Municipal Code pertaining to Notice inviting bids and Bid opening procedure at the August 25, 2020, regular Board of Aldermen meeting. This means beginning November 1, 2020, E-bidding will be the sole method in which bids are received at the City of Branson.

Costs of the bidding process will be reduced through the use of E-bidding and notifications by eliminating mailed out bid packages.  In 2019, the City of Branson went out to bid 77 times with an estimated cost of postage, paper, and legal ads equaling $8,120.48.

“We are always looking for ways to improve our services,” said Finance Director Jamie Rouch. “Not only will this save taxpayers money and protect the health of the vendors and City Staff by reducing contact through physical bidding packets, but moving to E-bidding will also improve the speed of communications between the City and vendors for bid postings, addendums and bid updates,” Rouch said.

The City of Branson is informing all current vendors of this change. For questions or for more information regarding this change, go to the Purchasing Division section of our website or call the City of Branson’s Finance Department at 417-337-8556.
