The Public Group

The Public Group

NACo recognizes The Public Group as a Premier Corporate Member and a Green Government Initiative Sponsor.  The Public Group, a leading knowledge provider in​ the e-porcurment arena, is working with NACo to perform research and provide education and technical assistance to help county leaders improve the efficiency of their procurement processes and save valuable taxpayer dollars.

​Over the past several years NACo has developed a robust program to assist counties in purchasing green products. With more than 15 years experience working with procurement systems, the Public Group was recognized by the NACo members for delivering a diverse set of offerings to county governments many of these at no cost.

Bid Notification and Electronic Bidding

By posting bids online, with The Public Group’s Public Purchase product, counties can eliminate expensive paper and mailing costs, reach a larger more diverse vendor database, while making it faster and easier in putting bids on the street. From RFP’s to Reverse Auctions and Bid Bonds to Quick Quotes the Public Purchase system offers NACo members the flexibility to explore new purchasing technology at no cost to them or their vendors.

Online Auctions

The majority of counties across the country do not take advantage of the technology available to them when it comes to disposing of their surplus items. By using software to manage and sell surplus items government agencies can experience an increase in revenue upwards of 250% and a reduction in overhead and transportation. With the largest buyer database of government online auctions, The Public Group, with its Public Surplus product, is a leader in the industry. The system was created with unique capabilities specifically for public agencies, making it much more than an auction site.

Contract Management

Managing contracts has always been a labor intensive and arduous process. The Public Group’s Public Contract system allows county governments to electronically manage all the details of their contracts. This management includes task notifications for insurance, contract review as well as extensions and renewals.

NACo's Premier Corporate Membership Program is more than raising the visibility of NACo Premier Members. It is about exchanging information with decision makers at the county government level and building relationships based on an understanding of one another's issues, priorities and timeliness.
