Bids and Tenders

Please note should you download documents for any bid, tender, quotation or proposal you must send a confirmation email to the identified Municipal contact to be registered on the potential proponents list. Failure to register may result in you missing any issued addendums and your proposal therefore being disqualified.

The Township's Purchasing Policy By-law provides guidance for an open and honest procurement program, with transparency as a cornerstone of the decision-making process. The policy promotes and maintains the integrity of the purchasing process and protects Council, vendors and staff involved in the process by providing clear direction and accountabilities. The Municipality has the absolute discretion in awarding contracts and retains the right to reject any or all Bids. Appendix B of the policy document outlines the action taken for Bid Irregularities, which are defined as a deviation between the requirements (terms, conditions, specifications, special instructions) of a bid request and the information provided in a bid response.

Bids and Tender Documents

Request for Quotation (RFQ)

A request for quotation is an invitation to suppliers to submit a bid on products and/or services to the Township. The RFQ process allows a multiple suppliers to propose how they will meet the requirements and and/or how much it will cost to provide and allows for evaluation on price and criteria to ensure a competitive method of procurement for the municipality. Any and all Addenda issued during the RFQ period must be attached as part of the submitted bid. Failure to do so will result in disqualification of the bid.

Request for Proposal (RFP)

A request for proposal is a bid submitted to the Township through a formal, public invitation to suppliers to provide goods and/or services where it is not practical to prepare precise specifications, or where "alternatives" to specifications will be considered. The RFP process allows suppliers to propose solutions to arrive at the end product, and allows for evaluation on criteria other than price to ensure that competition for the use of public money is open, fair and free from any parties having the unfair advantage of separate, prior, closed-door negotiations for the contract.

Tenders

Request for Information (RFI)

A request for information is a process the Municipality uses to obtain preliminary information about a market or the type of available supply or service when there is not enough information readily available for procurement method.
