    The City of Sterling Heights posts all bids and addendums for projects on MITN.

    We routinely receive FOIA requests from Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) for a "complete set" bid specs provided to MITN. Since CAM is a competitor of MITN, they do not have access to their system.

    Complications occur if we fulfill the request at the time of submission -
    1) it is not yet a "complete set" of specs because there could be addendums, resulting in... 2) us receiving erroneous bid submissions that we have to reject because the bidder is unaware of addendums posted AFTER the FOIA request.

    Have you experienced the same situation?
    If so, how have you handled it?
    Do you deny? Extend 10 days?

    Thanks!!!

    I just received a request from them also for all bids going out. It will create issues, I agree, when someone gets a bid packet from them and doesn't get the addendum or change items. How would we make sure that a vendor getting the information from them realizes that they are not an "official" provider?
