Good afternoon,

Thank you,

This email is in response to your inquiry regarding the manner in which we create and publish public solicitations. Marion County does not use a software system to create solicitations, we use Microsoft Word and create the documents ourselves. In order to advertise the solicitation we use Demandstar which is free to the county and is an online service. We do have an ERP system but it is not currently being used to manage the solicitation process. If you have further questions, please let me know.
