How to calculate your fair contribution

Savings on fees to other commercial providers

RFP information services are expensive and require a lot of attention to create any value. Even simple aggregators like Govspend, Tussell, Merx or RFP Mart will charge you $100-1,200 per month for unvalidated, generic data on procurements. You pay upfront, month by month, in the hope of finding something that works for you. Citymart is different. We will notify you for free with vetted opportunities that are fair and open. It is only after you get an opportunity that we will ask you to make a fair payment of your choice. 

Time spent searching

We read through hundreds of procurements every day to find what’s best for you. You could do that also, but be prepared to hire at least two full-time people, train them and keep them motivated! So if you receive an interesting opportunity from us, show us your appreciation by making a contribution for the time you saved.

Won a contract through our work?

Congrats!!! If you win a contract through a BidSpark notification, please do consider giving back to us so that we can continue our work and find even more opportunities for you. Think about how expensive it would be to pay a sleazy middleman for what we do for you.
