MARTIN COUNTY - County leaders, who have long worked to make Martin County welcoming to outside business interests, are turning their attention inward.

Officials are reaching out to local businesses and inviting them to bid on government contracts.

"We have new bids all the time that cover all kinds of things, from printing to roadside painting," said Nicole Carey, Martin County's purchasing manager.

"Any and everything that we use, if it's over $25,000 we put it out to bid."

Businesses can access information on current projects via an electronic system that notifies registered users of new opportunities.

Vendors who want to be automatically notified of bids or contracts can sign up at www.demandstar.com.

There, they'll get information on the scope of projects and bidding requirements, as well as access, in some cases, to downloadable bidding forms to submit proposals online.

Current projects include construction and repair work, an order to purchase tires in bulk, construction and repair work on area bridges and notices for professional services in design and architecture.

County staff post projects on an ongoing basis, and encourage local businesses to submit bids, said spokeswoman Gabriella Ferraro.

"As a vendor, you may participate in the market created by the needs of Martin County's government," she said.

For more information, contact the county's purchasing division on (772) 288-5779.
