Dear Valued Suppliers,
The City of Pontiac, MI Purchasing Department has partnered with OpenGov and is excited to announce our transition from a solely paper-based bid solicitation process to a fully automated web-based electronic bidding and vendor management system. 

 Our new e-Procurement Portal will allow prospective Suppliers the ability to:

  • Register to receive notifications of future opportunities by signing up for our new e-Procurement Portal and selecting the “Subscribe” button to create an account.
  • Follow along with updates to existing opportunities by finding the opportunity and clicking the “Follow” button. This will allow all interested bidders to receive amendments and addenda automatically.
  • Submit questions and receive answers online regarding open bid opportunities.
  • Use a guided process of responding electronically to bids to ensure your bids have been accurately completed.
  • Receive timely support for bid questions.
  • Have one location for all bid opportunities issued by name.

There is no cost for suppliers to register in OpenGov.
OpenGov will send you an email to activate your account, so please be on the lookout for that. Or you may subscribe to our bids by navigating to https://procurement.opengov.com/portal/pontiac-mi and clicking the “Subscribe” button.
