Within the Business Services Department, and under the direction of the Assistant Superintendent of Business and Operations, Purchasing Services orchestrates the procurement of all assets, construction, equipment, instructional materials, supplies and services. We are committed to facilitating cost effective methods and access to new business opportunities throughout our region. Our belief in competitive bidding and fair business practice will provide partnership opportunities to qualified vendors.
Vendor Registration Required
Registration is required for consideration, however it is not an assurance for inclusion in the bid and/or purchasing process. If interested in doing business complete the Vendor Registration form below and submit with a signed W9 to PurchasingServices@wsdmi.org. Please keep your company information current with us by sending modifications to this email address.
Competitive Bid Process
According to the revised Michigan School Code, the State of Michigan annually designates a base amount above which school districts must obtain competitive bids. In addition to our website, all Invitations to Bid for construction, equipment and food service will be advertised in the Oakland Press and posted on BidNetDirect/MITN.
Waterford School District has partnered with BidNet as part of the MITN Purchasing Group to post bid opportunities to this site. As a vendor, you can register with the MITN Purchasing Group and be sure that you see all available bids and opportunities. By selecting automatic bid notification, your company will receive emails once Waterford School District has a bid opportunity that matches your company's business. In addition, the site handles bid opportunities, RFPs, and RFQs for other member governmental agencies throughout Michigan.
Waterford School District looks forward to providing you with more bid information and simplifying the entire bid, proposal, and quote processes for everyone involved. We appreciate your cooperation and welcome your participation. If you need help registering, please call the MITN Purchasing Group support department toll free 1-800-835-4603 option #2.
