Dear Vendors and CNM Friends,

CNM is pleased to provide the second annual publication Building Community: CNM Master Plan Projects. We appreciate all of the support and engagement from our vendor community throughout this past year.

We recognize the valuable role you play in the success of CNM and are pleased to work with you, our partners in the community. We value a fair and transparent process and therefore want all potential and current vendor partners to have the opportunity to support the needs of the college.

As we have done for many years, CNM will continue to post Requests for Bid, Requests for Quotations, and Requests for Proposal information on the Purchasing Department page of the CNM website and we invite anyone to participate in the procurement process. For information about upcoming projects visit cnm.edu/purchasing.

Please note, the projects listed within this publication are Master Plan projects, there will also continue to be many additional opportunities outside the Master Plan projects including needs related to regular maintenance and small projects. Those projects will also be publicly posted on the website.

Thank you for your support and interest in working with CNM.
