We consider all suppliers equally during our procurement processes.
We disclose all the details of our requirements, evaluation criteria and selection process to our suppliers.
Bid on contracts
We welcome public and private businesses of all sizes to respond to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) by submitting a bid or proposal for the contract.

What to include in your RFP submission
Whether you’re submitting a proposal directly from our website or using MERX, you’ll need to provide the following information in your bid or proposal:
Include all rates, fees and charges that are indicated in the RFP.
Fill out details on work requirements, mandatory criteria and provide information on rated criteria.

How we decide who gets the contract
Proposals are managed by the Solicitation Control Office to ensure fairness and efficiency. Here’s the process once proposals are submitted:
- Proposals are dated, time stamped and held under custody until the application closing date.
- Submissions are passed to the Contracting Authority for review and to assure completeness.
- Following the initial review, submissions are passed to the Evaluation team for review of compliance and evaluation of the bid.
- Businesses are notified of the results of their bid. Unsuccessful bidders are offered a debriefing of the decision.
- Suppliers of approved bids must follow our Supplier Code of Conduct and all other terms and conditions of the contract.
