Answer: No. Registration is only the first step in the competitive bidding process. By registering, you will simply receive bid notifications. Completing the registration form does not mean that you are an MHEC supplier or that you have a contract. Registering simply identifies your company to MHEC as an interested bidder. In order to receive an MHEC contract, companies must respond to an MHEC bid and be awarded an MHEC contract. Once bids are submitted, all offers are reviewed and evaluated for competitive pricing to determine which products/services (if any) merit the award of a contract. Typically MHEC bids contracts every 3-5 years.
