Office of Procurement Receives Three National Association of Counties Awards

For Immediate Release: Friday, October 2, 2020

The Montgomery County Office of Procurement received three National Association of Counties (NACo) achievement awards in the categories of Information Technology and Transportation. The annual Achievement Award Program recognizes efforts by local jurisdictions that promote responsible, responsive, and effective County government initiatives. “The Office of Procurement is committed to better government through transparency,” said Procurement Director Ash Shetty. “These initiatives demonstrate the commitment to transparency in the procurement process. We worked with several departments to achieve these goals at low or no cost.”

The NACo award-winning Procurement initiatives include:

  • Solicitation Tracker – Transparency in Public Procurement – Information Technology Category Office of Procurement and Department of Technology Services (DTS)
    Director Ash Shetty, Sheronda Baltimore, DTS Contractor Sam Narula
    The solicitation tracker enables public search of solicitation status from issuance to execution.

  • Construction Manager at Risk Project Delivery System – Transportation Category Office of Procurement and Department of Transportation (MCDOT)
    Pam Jones, Bob Norris, and MCDOT’s Marcelo Cortez
    The development of this new process was managed so it integrated within the existing law; thereby, minimizing legislative changes while allowing a more innovative method for these types of projects.

Readers are invited to view the Solicitation Tracker and follow the Office of Procurement on Facebook and Twitter.
