VENDOR NOTIFICATION AND REGISTRATION
FOR THE CITY OF WARREN PURCHASING DIVISION
Dear Prospective Vendor:
The City of Warren Purchasing Division is pleased to announce that we utilize a regional system, to notify vendors of bid and quote opportunities. This system is called the Michigan Intergovernmental Trade Network (MITN). MITN is used for registration of vendors and for the posting of bids, quotes, requests for proposals, requests for information, addenda, and awards including tabulations.
Vendors with Internet access should review the registration options at www.mitn.info. The number of the BidNet(r) support group is (800) 677-1997 extension # 214. They will be happy to register you over the telephone.
BIDS (over $10,000) MUST BE SUBMITTED IN A SEALED ENVELOPE AND MAILED AS INSTRUCTED IN THE BID DOCUMENTS.
The MITN bid notification system is used by over Twenty (20) Purchasing Departments:
Please see the MITN Web site for a list.
The system provides the following benefits:
• 24-hour access to business opportunities
• Automatic notification based upon your designated product or service
• Timely mechanism for obtaining documents
• Vendor managed registration system
• More efficient bid notification and distribution from the participating communities
The service is available at no cost but requires you to check the site for bids on a regular basis. We strongly encourage all companies to take advantage of the option to receive automatic notification of solicitations. There is a cost of $49.95 per year or three years for $99.95. As this new system provides many benefits to your company, be sure to read and decide which registration option is best for your business. We look forward to providing you with increased business opportunities, increased, and a simplified and more reliable bidding and quoting process for everyone involved. We appreciate your cooperation and welcome your participation.
If you have any questions regarding this new system or registration, please contact the purchasing department at (586) 574-4636.
