DOING BUSINESS WITH US

To provide our services to St. Cloud, Sartell, Sauk Rapids and Waite Park, we rely on a range of contractors and suppliers through the procurement process. This page offers information and guidelines to current procurement opportunities offered by Metro Bus.

Procurement

Are you interested in working with us as a vendor or contractor? We issue solicitations for construction projects, goods, inventory items, consultant and professional services.

We are committed to ensuring equal opportunity for all vendors interested in our projects. We strongly encourage contractors, subcontractors, joint ventures, Small Business Enterprises (SBE) and Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) to bid on relevant projects and contracts.

Standard purchase order terms and conditions

The standard terms and conditions of purchase linked below are included with every purchase order issued by Metro Bus (“Buyer”). All Purchase Orders by Buyer become binding contracts, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, upon confirmation of the Purchase Order or upon the commencement of performance by the Seller (the party accepting the Purchase Order). ANY CHANGE, ADDITION OR MODIFICATION TO THE PURCHASE ORDER MUST BE AGREED TO IN WRITING BY THE BUYER. In some circumstances, due to the nature of the goods/services, supplemental terms and conditions of purchase have to be developed. The buyer will assist you in assessing the need for supplemental terms and conditions of purchase.

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)

As a part of our community involvement, service and dedication, we offer socially and economically disadvantaged individuals with equal opportunities to obtain contracts and project work. The St. Cloud Metropolitan Transit Commission (Metro Bus) established a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Small Business Enterprise (SBE) Program in accordance with regulations of the US Department of Transportation in 2012.

Before you can participate as a DBE, read the Mn/DOT eligibility requirements and complete the appropriate forms to demonstrate that your business is eligible for the program. Learn more: www.dot.state.mn.us/civilrights/dbe.html

DBE Directory: A searchable listing of all DBEs certified to perform work under the MN/DOT DBE program. Search by state, city, vendor, NAICS codes and more.

We are continuously looking for ways to ensure DBEs and SBEs have an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT-assisted contracts.  The objectives of the program include ensuring nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts, helping to remove barriers to the participation of DBEs and SBEs, and to assist in the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the DBE/SBE program.
