How to run an approved list
Please note that Metro provides the detail contained in any generated list as a service to offerors who desire assistance in locating potential subcontractors and suppliers, however, proposers are responsible for making contact with any vendors that are being considered for subcontract opportunities to ascertain said vendor's experience, capabilities, or capacity to perform. Additionally, offerors are responsible for ensuring that the approved status of these vendors is still valid at the time any solicitation response is submitted to Metro.
