BuyDetroit is a new program focused on helping Detroit vendors connect with opportunities, and preparing them to compete for contracts, ranging from large-scale development projects to product and service orders. This procurement initiative is designed as a coordinating force around the needs of Detroit’s existing business community. It includes investments in systems that can accelerate job creation and business growth.
The BuyDetroit portal is Detroit’s opportunity clearinghouse for procurement opportunities – all on one website. Suppliers and buyers can create online profiles, post and obtain real-time opportunities. Buyers can easily access suppliers through the databased to match their procurement needs. Through this robust data and reporting repository, we can better measure critical factors in the supply chain including opportunities secured by minority suppliers.
