A tip for all public school systems – join TIPS to save time and money on bid proposals

TIPS (The Interlocal Purchasing System) makes getting the right contractor for almost any task a whole lot easier.

Byrne & jones Construction is an approved TIPS vendor, ready to help you with any asphalt, concrete or micro surfacing project as well as construction of running tracks and synthetic turf fields.

Anyone involved in the process of creating proposals and awarding contracts knows what an arduous and time-consuming task it can be from start to finish. But the entire procurement process can be greatly simplified by becoming a member of The Interlocal Purchasing System.

TIPS makes the whole bidding and proposal process so much easier because they handle all of the contractual affairs and contractual relationships. There's no need to worry about having to advertise for bids, no need to worry about taking multiple bids and you're not obligated to take the lowest bid - which can oftentimes lead to its own set of headaches leading to frequent change orders and at times, a poor end product.

With TIPS, schools and governmental entities can more efficiently procure products and services through vendors that have already been thoroughly vetted and priced.

Here's a simple overview of the advantages of becoming a member of TIPS:

  • Instant access to competitively procured contracts with quality vendors and products - That's built in peace-of-mind knowing that whoever you decide to work with, they've already been vetted regarding stability, bonding and work done on previous similar jobs. If you're looking to use a nationally branded product, you'll have the freedom of choice to do so.
  • Savings of time and financial resources necessary to fulfill bid   requirements - Both of which can be exorbitant. Working with TIPS can save tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours over the course of a year.
  • Assistance with the purchasing process by qualified TIPS staff - When you have a question or an issue, there's someone ready to help at all times.

The entire process of working with TIPS is all about ease. Membership is free and once you're a TIPS member, you simply search for a list of categories, choose “All Contracts” and then look for a list of awarded vendors. They take care of the rest

Byrne & Jones Construction is one vendor you can definitely count on for a variety of construction-related tasks. As an approved TIPS vendor, we have been vetted and approved to work on all asphalt, concrete and micro surfacing jobs as well as approved for the construction of polyurethane tracks and synthetic field construction.

If your school system isn't currently a TIPS member, there's simply no reason not to sign up to begin purchasing products and services using TIPS awarded contracts. You'll quickly discover it's one of the best tips you'll ever receive.
