Businesses interested in having Gwinnett County Government as a customer are invited to attend the 12th Annual Supplier Symposium hosted on Thursday, April 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center. The event is free.
The symposium, hosted by the Gwinnett Purchasing Division, is designed to give potential vendors an opportunity to network and establish relationships with county departments, understand county purchasing processes and learn about current and upcoming projects.
Prospective vendors can meet with numerous buyers and contracting officers from the Purchasing Division as well as representatives from various county departments and agencies from other jurisdictions, including cities, neighboring counties and the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce. Participants can register as a vendor to learn about and discuss upcoming projects.
“We want to help vendors do business with Gwinnett County government,” said Purchasing Director Bryant Davis. “This symposium allows them to learn about the latest policies and procedures in the procurement process. Plus, we believe that we can save taxpayer dollars if we have more companies competing for our business.”
Attendees can visit the Purchasing Department webpage at www.gwinnetcounty.com to register for this event, to view current open projects and business opportunities and to download a how-to-manual for doing business with Gwinnett County. The Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center is located at 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville.
