FLINT, Mich. (PRWEB) July 17, 2018
Kettering University announced today that it has joined the MITN Purchasing Group. BidNet’s MITN Purchasing Group helps businesses post, distribute and manage RFPs, quotes, addendums and awards online. The MITN Purchasing Group provides notification to registered vendors of new bids related to their industry, and any addenda and award information from over 200 participating agencies across Michigan. Kettering University invites all potential vendors to register online with the MITN Purchasing Group to access its upcoming solicitations by visiting https://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn.
Kettering University joined the purchasing group in July with the intent to enhance their bid process for purchasing items and services using federal or state awarded funds. The MITN Purchasing Group streamlines the creation and issuance of bid requests, supplier response submission and the awarding of bids. By providing an online location for managing sourcing information and activities, local Michigan businesses minimize costs and time delays associated with their procurement process.
Kettering University now has access to an extensive vendor pool, thereby enhancing competition without increasing distribution costs. In addition to the existing vendors on the MITN Purchasing Group, all vendors looking to do business with local government agencies or businesses purchasing items and services with federal or state awards, can register online at http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn. Kettering University invites any current vendors not already registered on the purchasing group to do so today.
Registered vendors can access bids, related documents, and addendum and award information. In addition, for a small fee, the MITN Purchasing Group offers a value-added alert service to notify vendors of new bids targeted to their industry, all addenda associated with those bids and advance notice of term contracts.
Vendor benefits include:
- Receive targeted bids
- Receive bid deadline reminders
- Notification of term contract expiration
- Access a single point of entry for all participating agency bids
- Contact with a dedicated vendor support team
