Claims for lien notice to vendors
"No gift" policy
Region of Peel employees aren't permitted to seek or accept any gifts, entertainment, payments, fees, services, valuable privileges, or other favours from any vendors, individuals or businesses that have any dealings with the Region. This includes lunches, dinners and parties during holiday periods or otherwise. We ask that you refrain from making any such offerings to Region of Peel staff as they'll be declined and any gifts will be returned where possible.
If for any reason we're unable to return a gift received during the holiday period, we'll donate it to the Holiday Gift Initiative organized by the Region's Human Services department. These gifts will be distributed by the Region's Ontario Works division to families in need within Peel region.

The Region of Peel is committed to open, fair and transparent procurement practices to achieve best value for money in the stewardship of public funds. The Procurement team is a group of professionals providing the service of acquiring goods/services as required by our clients (regional departments) in a cooperative and timely manner within the Procurement by-law, amending by-laws 4-2020, 16-2020, 32-2021 and procedures set out by The Regional Municipality of Peel.

When a performance, labour and material bond is required, the awarded vendor will be required to submit the digital bonds as part of their required award documentation.
All bid opportunities can be viewed on the Region's bids&tenders™ website.

Creating and Managing Your Account
Bidders are encouraged to create a free vendor account.
If other individuals in your organization require access to view, edit, acknowledge agenda, submit and/or withdraw bids on your behalf, they can be added by clicking on the "add another contact" button once a primary account has been created.
When creating a Vendor Account do not invite additional contacts that you do not want to have access to view, edit, submit and/or withdraw your bids or who may be in direct competition. For example, a company may have two divisions that could be competing for the same Bid Opportunity.
It is your sole responsibility to keep your additional invited contact(s) current and delete any contacts that you do not want to have the ability to submit, edit and/or withdraw your company bid submissions (for example: delete any contact that is no longer employed with your company).
Accounts are associated with your e-mail address. An organization can have numerous contacts under the company profile. Once a primary account has been created, the organization has the option to add multiple users who will have the same access to the Bid Opportunities site.
If you are unsure if your company has an account, please contact eSolutions at email@example.com. This will ensure there is no duplication in the system.
Submitting,Editing or Withdrawing Your Bid Submission
If you try to process your bid submission past the closing date/time, you will receive a message stating that you have missed the deadline and your bid cannot be accepted.
Bidders may edit or withdraw their bid submission at any time prior to the closing time and date.
Bidders will automatically receive an e-mail notification confirming their bid submission.
If you are having difficulty submitting a bid, check the following:
- Ensure you are using the recommended internet browsers: Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Make sure you have a reliable internet connection.
- In the submission, every tab must have a green checkmark indicating that all the mandatory requirements have been completed. If a field has been missed, there will be a red exclamation mark.
- In the "Preview My Bid" tab, a red box will appear indicating warnings and errors in the bid submission. Click the "Fix it!" button and the system will direct you to the error's location.
If you still experience any difficulties, contact eSolutions at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To see the status of the bid, go to the search engine, change the status to "All" and enter the Bid Document Number. The status of a bid will be indicated under "BidDetails".
