The City of Albion regularly invites vendors to submit price quotes, competitive bids, and statements of qualifications for goods and services that the city needs to manage its operations. The city is a proud member of the Michigan Intergovernmental Trade Network (MITN), a municipal cooperative that collaborates on the bidding and purchasing of municipal goods and services, and the city utilizes a web based bidding system, BidNet Direct, to manage its bidding and purchasing functions. All vendors interested in selling goods or services to the city must register as a vendor on the city's BidNet Direct/MITN system to be able to access, view, and download bidding and purchasing documents. Registration is free of charge and only takes a few minutes to complete. Registration also provides additional advantages and opportunities for vendors, such as access to other municipalities' bid advertisements in Michigan and throughout the United States. Vendors can search for these opportunities on the system. BidNet Direct also offers an optional subscription service that allows vendors to receive automatic E-mail notifications of bid opportunities matching the good or service codes of the vendor.
The City of Albion's bidding, purchasing, and contracting activities are managed through the Office of the City Manager. The city's bidding, purchasing, and contracting regulations can be found in the City Charter and City of Albion Code of Ordinances.
