 Government Contracts

State and government contracts provide process servers with a great opportunity for recurring revenues. Many ServeNow.com advertisers have been awarded government contracts in recent months because these agencies have found them on ServeNow.com. Quite often government agencies advertise RFPs (Request for Proposals) for process serving contracts.

As a service to our advertisers, newsletter subscribers and Yahoo! Group members we will be providing the details of these contracts as they become available. In the future, notification of these bids will first go out to our advertisers via private email and then will be posted in the ServeNow.com Yahoo Group a few days later. Click here to join the ServeNow.com Yahoo! Group.
