Rubicon, a technology company that powers a digital marketplace, provides a suite of SaaS products for waste, recycling, and smart city solutions, and collects and analyzes data for businesses and governments worldwide, announced it has been selected as an approved service provider for the nationally-recognized HGACBuy program, a government procurement service striving to make the governmental procurement process more efficient.
Starting this month, cities and local governments across the country will be able to purchase RUBICONSmartCity directly though HGACBuy in the “Smart City Fleet Services Equipment” category.
Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) is a political subdivision of the State of Texas that has been serving local governments nationwide for more than 40 years. All contracts available to participating members of HGACBuy have been awarded by virtue of a public competitive procurement process compliant with state statutes. HGACBuy offers an efficient purchasing process by establishing competitively-priced contracts for goods and services. This provides an easy and expedited service, helping members achieve their procurement goals.
“Cities and local governments across the country will now be able to secure the RUBICONSmartCity technology platform through HGACBuy, which will dramatically help to accelerate the procurement timeline,” said Michael Allegretti, Chief Public Strategy Officer at Rubicon. “As more and more cities look to implement technology as a central part of a path towards greater sustainability and ending waste, Rubicon will continue to be at the forefront of setting the smart cities agenda, and we are thrilled to be a part of the HGACBuy consortium to help make that mission a reality for cities and municipalities.”
