The month-long campaign aims to bring awareness to these businesses and encourage the businesses to participate in the county’s bidding and quote process.  There are 116 commodity/service areas where Procurement Services solicits quotes, and Olsen says this month is one in which the government does a lot of purchasing- so the commission hopes that purchasing can be local.
