County Hosting Vendor Symposium August 30 August 26, 2016 Photo Vendor Symposium Companies interested in learning about doing business with Forsyth County government are invited to attend an upcoming vendor symposium. The event will be held on Tuesday, August 30 at 8:30 a.m., in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room (Suite 220) in the Forsyth County Administration Building, located at 110 E. Main Street in Cumming. “We are inviting vendors to come in and learn about how the county procurement process works,” Director of Procurement Donna Kukarola said. “Businesses of all types are encouraged to attend this event, as we purchase a wide variety of materials, equipment and services.” Attendees will have the opportunity to meet buyers and contracting officers from the Forsyth County Procurement Department, learn about the procurement process and upcoming procurement opportunities, and network with other vendors. They will also learn about the county’s Local Business Initiative, Emergency Supplier Network and the recently launched Vendor Self Service Portal. The Forsyth County Board of Education will also be participating in the event and sharing information with attendees on how to do business with the school system. Registration for the event is available (but is not required) and can be completed via the Procurement Department’s “Bids & Results” Web page at forsythco.com.
