In case you missed it, this past July, began working with the North American Procurement Council (NAPC) and using Bid Ocean, a bid lead provider service started by Tim Loncarich.
The NAPC is a Colorado-based Web portal that connects American businesses to current purchasing requests of most government agencies. The NAPC website hosts national bid requests for Requests For Proposal (RFP) and Requests For Information (RFI). Individual portals for all 50 states can be found here. Both of these sites link contractors and project own ers.
NAPC’s CEO Tim Loncarich explains: “For the first time in American history, the current and recent procurement solicitations of most every federal, state, county and city government agency are freely available in one place.”
TRIC was introduced to this space at the Denver No-Dig Show, where our sales executive Jay Battin, engineer Robert Ding and operations manager Michael Lien met with Bid Ocean’s Michael Winter, who described for us the goals of NAPC.
We’ve worked closely with Mr. Winter, learning the different facets of Bid Ocean. Jay says, “I can’t recall another salesperson who’s been as responsive and helpful as Michael (Winter) has, in getting us up and running with Bid Ocean and NAPC. Bid Ocean has done a fantastic job in separating the work categories, especially for pipe bursting contractors, and Michael has taken us step-by-step through the process to ensure we can use every bit of the software.”
We’re excited to be moving forward with our marketing plans, and look forward to a fruitful relationship with both Bid Ocean and NAPC. We’re proud to be represented there as an infrastructure and environmental solutions company that provides proprietary technology, tools and services for the non-invasive rehabilitation and replacement of sewer, water, gas and other difficult-to-access underground pipes.
In case you weren’t aware, we hold four U.S. and International patents for our device and method of trenchless pipe replacement. Our equipment stands out in the industry as ultra-compact, and is categorically the smallest, lightest trenchless pipe replacement option in the industry.
