    Many procurement offices have thought about going paperless by using on-line bidding, but for various reasons, including cost, most never seem to do it. This presentation shows you a low cost simple and paperless solution developed by the Tacoma School District Purchasing Department. With the tips in this presentation, anyone can develop their own e-procurement solution.


     After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
    1.  Simplify RFP proposal evaluations for evaluators
    2.  Eliminate paper from the RFP evaluation and scoring process
