GIBRALTAR, Mich. (PRWEB) October 07, 2020
The City of Gibraltar announced today that it has joined the MITN Purchasing Group, a regional purchasing group that helps local governments post, distribute, and manage RFPs, quotes, addendums, and awards online. BidNet’s MITN Purchasing Group provides notification to registered vendors of new relevant solicitations, any addenda and award information from nearly 250 participating agencies across Michigan. The City of Gibraltar invites all vendors to register online at http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn.
The City of Gibraltar joined the MITN Purchasing Group in October. In joining, the City of Gibraltar has become the 239th participating local government agency utilizing the system to streamline their purchasing process. The MITN Purchasing Group is a single, online location for managing sourcing information and activities and provides local Michigan government agencies a method to minimize costs and time delays associated with the procurement process. The City of Gibraltar was distributing bids and managing the procurement process manually before joining the system. In joining, the City of Gibraltar looks to save time, increase competition, and achieve cost savings over the traditional paper-based bid process.
The City of Gibraltar 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 respond to bids with local government agencies can register online: http://www.bidnetdirect.com/mitn. The City of Gibraltar invites all current vendors not already registered on the MITN Purchasing Group to do so today. Vendor registration is easy and takes only a few minutes online.
Registered vendors can access bids, related documents, 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 associated with those bids and advance notice of term contract expiration. A robust NIGP code category list allows vendors registering to find the correct codes and receive matched bids.
“By using the MITN Purchasing Group, our valued vendors can now access not only our open bids, but those from other municipalities, counties and school districts throughout the Michigan. In addition to the time savings we anticipate, our vendors will also benefit from registering in one location for all local bid opportunities. We invite all of our current vendors to register or contact the vendor support team with any questions,” Timothy McLean, City Administrator for the City of Gibraltar.
Vendors may register on the MITN Purchasing Group: 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.
