Selling to the State of Michigan – Webinar
Wednesday, May 29, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
The Department of Technology Management and Budget (DTMB) Procurement Office serves as the Central Purchasing office for the State of Michigan. Each year, the DTMB oversees hundreds of multi-year contracts valued at billions of dollars. Other State agencies have purchasing authority up to $500 K and small purchases < $10K are handled event differently.
Did you know that the State has an Extended Purchasing Program that allows Cities, Counties, and other local units of government to use State Contracts?
This webinar will cover the basics of what you need to know to get started on your way to selling to the State of Michigan. Topics include:
- What does the State buy and who does the buying?
- Where to find opportunities
- Registering as a Vendor
- What is Sigma VSS?
- Central Procurement Contract List
- Extended Purchasing Program
- State Purchasing Preferences
- Getting help from your PTAC
