How to Become a Vendor

‚ÄčIf you are looking to expand your business opportunities, become a vendor with SMART. SMART utilizes The Michigan Inter-governmental Trade Network also known as MITN. MITN is an Internet-based web site where vendors can easily be notified of bid opportunities throughout Michigan.

To become a SMART vendor means to participate in the procurement process. SMART is committed to full and open competition. In order to meet this commitment, SMART must bridge the gap of its unique requirements, the suppliers who meet the specifications and other requirements outlined in each procurement document. The identification of discrete suppliers is an ongoing and repetitive process, which must be accomplished quickly and precisely.
