Here at Unison Marketplace, we understand the ever changing needs of our Buyers. We also understand that Buyers have a variety of different procurement requirements that need to be met on a real time basis. In order to help them maximize time savings on the marketplace, we have introduced a brand new feature called the Draft Buy Builder.  This feature allows Unison Marketplace to continue to support Buyers in a new and innovative way. We hope this feature further increases Unison Marketplace’s value to our current Buyers, as well as shows future significance to potential customers looking for procurement solutions and time savings.

So, how does it work?

The Draft Buy Builder allows Buyers to easily upload their purchase requirements on Unison Marketplace for drafting. Once the request has been received and drafted, the team will then transfer the Buy into the Buyers Draft Buy tab for review.  At this point, the Buyer is able to edit and/or add any additional information prior to posting the buy live on the Marketplace. Through this streamlined approach, we hope to save Buyers time when posting requirements.

As this is a new feature, the Draft Buy Builder is currently being piloted with few of our Buying agencies. These include: the Department of the Interior, the Library of Congress, and the Department of State (outside the continental United States accounts only), FEMA and several agencies (or offices) within both the Department of the Navy and the National Guard Bureau. If you are not part of one of these Buying agencies and would like to utilize this new feature, please feel free to contact your dedicated Account Management team.
