The City of Flint joins the MITN Purchasing Group for Automated Distribution
The City of Flint 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 49 regional purchasing groups throughout the country which offers participating local government agencies an e-procurement solution. The City of Flint invites all vendors to register online with the MITN Purchasing Group at www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn to access its upcoming solicitations.
With the MITN Purchasing Group, vendors register to access one centralized location with opportunities from 227 participating agencies throughout Michigan. By posting upcoming solicitations to the regional purchasing group rather than their website, the City of Flint 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.
The City of Flint 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 226 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.
