Vendors
Macomb Township utilizes one central bid notification system, servicing all departments of Macomb Township, through the Michigan Intergovernmental Trade Network (M.I.T.N.) Purchasing Cooperative. Please register online.

Created in conjunction with BidNet®, this system is available for registration and is used by Macomb Township and many other local Michigan governmental agencies to post bids, quotes, requests for proposals, construction notices, addenda, and awards including tabulations (view Clerk's notice to vendors.) This centralized system offers vendors a single point of contact and broader access to new business opportunities throughout our region. For more information, see the M.I.T.N. system website.

Surplus Auctions
Surplus auctions include items from a number of participating agencies such as vehicles, equipment, computers and office furniture. There is no fee to bid on surplus auctions and it is open to all.

Purchasing Mission
The mission of the Purchasing Section is to procure goods and services at the lowest competitive price and to maintain quality standards in those purchases while acting in the Township's best interest.

The procurement of goods and services is an integral part of the quality control procedures currently being applied to all levels of the administration. Several policies and new procedures are in place to ensure that all requisitions en route to purchasing are screened for compliance along the way.

The issues involving ethical standards of purchasing are constantly being monitored to maintain the highest level of standards.
