The Region of Peel Has Joined bids&tenders™
The Region of Peel is now using the bids&tenders™ eProcurement platform to post bid opportunities. This new bidding platform will modernize the way we deliver our services to the vendor community.
Electronic Submission of Bids Starts on March 26, 2018
The Region of Peel is excited to announce that it will begin accepting electronic submission of bids through the bids&tenders™ platform starting March 26, 2018. Currently, the Region only posts bid documents on bids&tenders™ and the submission of bids remains in-person or by mail/courier.
As of March 26, 2018:
- All vendors interested in bidding on the Region's bid posts must register with bids&tenders™.
- For bids issued after March 26, we will only accept bids that are submitted through the bids&tenders™ platform.
- For bids issued before March 26, submission of bids will continue to be in-person or by mail/courier.
Digital Bid Bond
As of March 26, the Region's only form of bid security will be digital bid bonds. Where bid security is required, vendors will be required to submit a digital bid bond as part of their online bid submission. Vendors are encouraged to contact their sureties well in advance of submitting a bid to arrange for the preparation of any required digital bid bond to ensure that the bid bond is available for submission on closing.
Benefits of Using bids&tenders™
Using bids&tenders™ offers vendors many benefits including unlimited access to bid postings from all agencies using bids&tenders™ in Canada. An annual subscription fee is $165 and a one-time, pay-per-bid option is also available at $45 per bid. Bid documents can be previewed without the payment. Vendors not currently registered with bids&tenders™ can register at www.bidsandtenders.ca.
