The Wayne County Airport Authority (Airport Authority) provides many opportunities for firms to take part in the significant growth and development that occurs daily at Detroit Metro and Willow Run Airports. Business opportunities range from construction and facility maintenance to retail concessions and advertising.

- Competitive Solicitation
- Goods and Services Acquisition
