IT Procurement for Government

Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) provides hardware, software, and IT professional services to State of Minnesota executive branch agencies. We work with the Minnesota Department of Administration’s (ADMIN) Office of State Procurement (OSP) to establish competitive vendor contracts.

OSP contracts may be available to other government entities through Minnesota’s Cooperative Purchasing Venture (CPV).

For Vendors

To do business with MNIT you need to become a vendor through the Office of State Procurement.
