Bids And Tenders

Learn more about the city’s procurement process and regulations. To view contracts currently open for bidding, visit our Bids and Tenders page.

We’re committed to procurement decisions that are fair and transparent. The city's purchasing bylaw (PDF) establishes rules that return value for the taxpayer, protect the city's financial interests and encourage competitive bidding in line with applicable treaties and trade agreements.

We’re members of the Grand River Cooperative Procurement Group, The Institute for Public Procurement and Ontario Public Buyers Association. We use GovDeals to dispose of surplus goods.

Competitive bids

The estimated value of a contract determines the process to be used. If a purchase warrants a formal competitive bid it will be posted on Bids and Tenders.
