Goods and services are typically procured through a request for proposal process. This may vary on a case-by-case basis depending on the scope of the project or purchase.

Once a bid is accepted, a successful bidder will need to obtain a Mille Lacs Band vendor license through the Gaming Regulatory Authority. The cost of the license is based on the contractor’s annual business with the Band.

Once a license is received, a contract or purchase order will be initiated. These documents will detail the scope of work and contractual information required by the Band as it relates to arbitration, governing law, and sovereign community.

Based on the scope of the project or purchase, Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures  will identify and select companies to receive a request for proposal.

We are always interested in doing business with competitive companies.
