Firms that register with the City of Battle Creek will be notified of formal bid and proposal opportunities for the commodity or service categories that have been selected, for those contracts with the city that will exceed $20,000 annually.
It is not necessary to register as a vendor in order to bid on city projects, to do work for the city, or to get paid. That is a separate process after a purchase order is issued.
It is the sole responsibility of suppliers to register and keep the city updated to ensure accuracy of its record.
The city will use its best effort to notify registered suppliers of bid and proposal opportunities. However, the city does not guarantee delivery of Bid Notices through any mail service or by electronic processes. It is the supplier's responsibility to read the Bid Notices and to retrieve the complete solicitations in a timely manner.
