Milestone Achieved in Procurement Modernization

As part of the Provincial Government’s commitment to modernizing procurement, a contract has been awarded to Merx Network Inc. to implement and manage an electronic procurement solution for e-bidding.

E-bidding will help save time and money by eliminating the need to drop off a paper copy to the procurement offices within Tendering and Contracts or the Public Procurement Agency.

The new e-procurement system, which is expected to be implemented by March 2020, supports the ability to build, view, respond and evaluate public tenders online.

This solution allows suppliers to submit bids online, eventually replacing the paper-based process used for the majority of procurement opportunities.
