Please note: Becoming an approved vendor on MLL’s mailing list does not automatically ensure that you will start receiving requests for quotations. In order to make your firm known, we suggest that you submit fact sheets, references, or other information that outlines your capabilities.

To remain actively available for purchasing opportunities, it is your responsibility to keep your profile information accurate and up to date.
