Charter Township of Commerce joins the MITN Purchasing Group

Commerce Township, MI - Today the Charter Township of Commerce has officially joined the MITN Purchasing Group to help simplify their bid and RFP distribution process. The MITN Purchasing Group is one of BidNet’s regional purchasing groups spanning across all 50 states which offers participating local government agencies an e-procurement solution. The Charter Township of Commerce invites all vendors to register online at www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn in order to access future Township solicitations.

With the MITN Purchasing Group, vendors register to access one centralized location with opportunities from over 200 participating agencies throughout Michigan. By posting upcoming solicitations to the regional purchasing group rather than their website, the Charter Township of Commerce hopes to make it easier for more vendors to access their documents. They also hope to expand the reach of their solicitations to a more diverse vendor pool. Unlike the prior process of only publishing bids to a webpage, the MITN Purchasing Group provides a method to track all bid activity, including the details of vendors who have received or downloaded a bid.

"All Township bids are handled by the Clerk’s Department and MITN will allow for more streamlined and efficient process,” says Melissa Creech, Commerce Township Clerk. She continues to say “I am looking forward to reaching a wider audience of vendors and saving the Township and residents money.”

The Charter Township of Commerce invites all local vendors to visit www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn and register to receive access to its upcoming solicitations as well as the upcoming bids and RFPs from over 200 other public agencies participating on the MITN Purchasing Group. Registered vendors also gain access to a team of experienced customer service support representatives and can upgrade their service to receive customized bid alerts, advanced notice of term contract expiration, and notification of a recently posted addendum.
