then $19 billion? Did you know that you can become a supplier to the

Representatives from the State will be on hand to provide knowledge on

State of Michigan, how to become a registered State vendor and how to
bid and win State contracts.

Whether you sell milk or electrical supplies, commodities or computers,
chemicals or construction or

janitorial services, you have potential as a Michigan vendor. Property
owners with office or warehouse

space to rent may also find opportunities with the State. The State of
Michigan's need for goods and

services is far ranging.

"The government marketplace can be another avenue to grow a business,"
says PTAC Coordinator

Patrick Bubin. "Business-to-Government, or B2G sales channels include
both federal and state

procurement. Much of our PTAC services are directed toward federal
contracts or subcontracting, but

we also make an effort to regularly present learning opportunities on
doing business with the State of

Michigan. This is one such occasion and businesses should take advantage
of this seminar to learn how

they could become a State of Michigan supplier."
