Purchasing Policies & Resources

Purchasing and Procurement

Purchasing processes and delegated authority levels are governed by a Purchasing Policies and Procedures Manual. We comply fully with the Ontario Broader Public Sector Procurement Directives. The following brochure contains a few guiding principles and procurement highlights which were taken from our Policy and Procedure manual.

Bid Opportunities

For supply contracts greater than $100,000, or if deemed necessary by the Steering Committee, the Purchasing Department will conduct a formal tender process. All formal tenders are conducted through our electronic tendering service, facilitated by Merx. All addendums to the contract and award notifications will also be conducted through this site.
