Our valued vendors can now save time and paper. Plus they not only have direct access to our open bids, but those from other agencies throughout the state.
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) October 05, 2017
The Detroit Employment Solution Corporation announced it has joined the MITN Purchasing Group and will be publishing and distributing upcoming bid opportunities on the system. BidNet’s MITN Purchasing Group connects nearly 200 participating agencies from across Michigan to a large vendor pool and streamlines the bid and vendor management process. BidNet’s MITN Purchasing Group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, and any addenda and award information from participating agencies.
The Detroit Employment Solution Corporation joined the purchasing group in September. Detroit Employment Solution Corporation will utilize the system to streamline their purchasing process including bid management, bid distribution and vendor relations. The MITN Purchasing Group is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local Michigan government agencies the tools needed to minimize costs and save time throughout the purchasing process.
Before joining the MITN Purchasing Group, Detroit Employment Solution Corporation was distributing bids and managing their procurement process manually. The traditional, “paper” procurement process is being replaced by local government agencies throughout Michigan. In joining the MITN Purchasing Group, Detroit Employment Solution Corporation looks to save time, reach out to more vendors automatically and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.
The MITN Purchasing Group expands an agency’s vendor pool and enhances vendor competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing agencies on the MITN Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to do business with Detroit Employment Solution Corporation can register online at http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn. Detroit Employment Solution Corporation invites all interested bidders to register today.
Registered vendors can access all open bids, related documents and files, and additional addendum and award information. In addition, the MITN Purchasing Group offers a value-added service to notify vendors of new bids targeted to their industry, all addenda and advance notification of expiring term contracts. Registered vendors have access to not only the Detroit Employment Solution Corporation bid opportunities, but all participating agency bids.
“Our valued vendors can now save time and paper. Plus, they not only have direct access to our open bids, but those from other agencies throughout the state. We invite all of our current vendors to register on the MITN Purchasing Group to start receiving business opportunities,” stated Alessia Baker-Giles, Finance Director of the Detroit Employment Solution Corporation.
Vendors may register on the MITN Purchasing Group by visiting http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn. BidNet’s vendor support team is available to answer any questions regarding the registration process or the bid system at 800-835-4603 option 2.
