SALEM, Mich. (PRWEB) April 17, 2018
The Salem Township Fire Department in Washtenaw County is announcing that it has just 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 their bid and vendor management process. Salem Township Fire Department invites all vendors to register online with the MITN Purchasing Group to access its upcoming solicitations by visiting http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn.
The Salem Township Fire Department joined the purchasing group in April. Salem Township Fire Department 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 their purchasing process.
Before joining the system, Salem Township Fire Department was distributing bids and managing the procurement process manually. The traditional, “paper” procurement process is being replaced by local government agencies throughout Michigan. In joining the MITN Purchasing Group, the Salem Township Fire Department 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 vendors on the MITN Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to do business with the Salem Township Fire Department can register online at http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn. The Salem Township Fire Department 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, and all addenda and advance notification of expiring term contracts. Registered vendors have access to not only Salem Township Fire Department’s 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 MITN Purchasing Group to start receiving business opportunities,” stated Jim Rachwal, Fire Chief of Salem Township Fire Department.
