We are pleased to announce AURSI’s partnership with H2bid, Inc. Based in San Diego, California, H2bid connects water and wastewater utilities with vendors, such as suppliers, contractors, and consultants. H2bid is the #1 lead generation service for bids from municipal water and wastewater utilities, with more bids than any other source (over 400,000 bids have been posted on the platform). H2bid covers all 50 states and Canada (see www.h2bid.com).
AURSI and H2bid will work together to grow AURSI in the water/wastewater utility market. The AURSI platform will be co-marketed as “H2bid Parts, Powered by AURSI,” and the parties have launched a new joint website: www.h2bidparts.com. We look forward to working with H2bid to bring the benefits of AURSI to more water and wastewater utilities throughout the nation.

Effective February 1, 2002 the AURSI system provides to Utilities and Suppliers the ability to complete Bids/Quotes from beginning to end. A Buyer can now initiate a Bid and within seconds the invited Suppliers have the capability to enter pricing and delivery. The AURSI system has also simplified the Evaluation and Award side of the Procurement Cycle making everything available directly on-line. Several hundred of Bids/Quotes have been administered through the system
