The Washtenaw County Purchasing Division is utilizing a regional bid notification system, created exclusively for the Tri-County Purchasing Cooperative under the Michigan Intergovernmental Trade Network (MITN) e-procurement initiative. This system serves the purchasing departments of the cities of Allen Park, Ann Arbor, Birmingham, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Lansing, Farmington Hills, Madison Heights, Rochester Hills, Royal Oak, Southfield, Sterling Heights, Tecumseh, Troy, Warren, and Westland, the County of Livingston, Ottawa County, Metroparks and the Wayne County Airport Authority.
Created in conjunction with BidNet, this system will be used by the above agencies to post bids, quotes, requests for proposals, construction notices, addenda, and awards including bid tabulations. By establishing a regional bidding and registration system, vendors will now have a single point of contact and broader access to new business opportunities throughout our region. Participation in the MITN system is not a necessary requirement for doing business with Washtenaw County. You will still be able to get bid information at no cost by monitoring the Heritage newspapers for our legal ads or searching our web site for new information. The MITN system provides the following benefits:
24-hour access to business opportunities
notification based on your designated product or service
more reliable and timely mechanism for obtaining documents
self-managed registration system
By using this system, the Washtenaw County Purchasing Division expects to significantly reduce public expenses for paper, printing, and mailing. In addition, this user-friendly system also improves service to vendors. All vendors can register on this new system by going to www.mitn.info and selecting the link for the Michigan MITN System.
The annual membership fee is $25 per year. IF YOU ARE ALREADY REGISTERED ON THIS SYSTEM, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER SEPARATELY FOR THE WASHTENAW COUNTY PURCHASING DIVISION.
As registration provides many benefits to your company, be sure to read and decide which registration option will be best for your business. Should you have any questions regarding this new system or registration, please call BidNet at 800-677-1997, or the Purchasing Division at Washtenaw County at 734-222-6760.
We appreciate your cooperation and continued interest in doing business with the Washtenaw County Purchasing Division as well as welcome your participation in MITN. Best Regards,
