As a registered vendor, information you provide on your company and its goods/services is stored in the central statewide vendor database for inclusion in bidder list as they arise. The annual registration gives you automatic notification of all state agency procurements* over $50,000 in your areas of interest. You may elect to be notified of opportunities electronically or by first-class mail while also having the ability to search for and download current bids and state agency contracts at your convenience.
Simply complete the on-line registration process. Be sure to mail or fax in the "Registration Successful" page located at the end of the on-line process. It is important to note that we do not activate accounts without a copy of this page
Section 16.70(8), Wis. Stats., defines Wisconsin municipality as a county, city, village, town, school district, board of school directors, sewer district, drainage district, technical college district or any other public or quasi-public corporation, officer, board or other body having the authority to award public contracts. Municipalities are able to acquire many products and services through contracts listed on the VendorNet System. Savings ranging between 20% and 60% off retail prices can be realized through the use of these statewide contracts. VendorNet maximizes the subscriber's time and money by getting the highest value for the taxpayer's dollars.
VendorNet can also reduce staff time required to research specifications, minimize bidding, and reduce the time required to identify new vendors. A registered municipality can search for current contracts available for cooperative purchasing and download contracts that they may want to use. In addition, municipalities will be able to post their own municipal bids and proposals on VendorNet, expanding the distribution of these documents to a broader vendor base and maximizing competition on their procurements.
