This purchasing community and e-Procurement solution from BidNet connects nearly 200 public purchasing departments throughout the state of Michigan. The Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan encourages all local vendors interested in doing business with local government agencies to register online with the MITN Purchasing Group to gain access to upcoming bid opportunities.
“At the RTA, we are always looking to increase our vendor pool and competition,” says Ginny Lickliter, Office Manager, Staff Accountant, and Executive Administrative Assistant of the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan. "We hope the MITN Purchasing Group will help us extend the reach of our solicitations, and it can help our vendors find more local opportunities,” continued Lickliter.
