eSourcewell holds several competitively established contracts that are available to government agencies for a variety of procurement projects to over 60,000 government members. In turn member state agencies can procure these established products through the packaged contracts that Sourcewell has developed for this purpose. Sourcewell simplifies this process by developing RFBs and IFBs for nationwide solicitation. In simpler terms a government organization becomes a member, finds a vendor contract, and selects the vendor based on the products that they need.
