Selling to The City - Procurement

Two people shaking hands

Current Opportunities

Notices of procurement opportunities are posted on the Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC) website; however the actual downloadable documents are available on the bids&tenders™ website.  

Vendors are invited to create a free Bidding System Vendor account by visiting our Bid Opportunities website and clicking on the “Create Account” button. When creating an account, Vendors should select the commodity code(s) for goods, services and construction that they may be interested in, and the Bidding System will notify the Vendor by email of any bid opportunities matching their commodity code selection. 

With the exception of Invitation to Tender (ITT's), Bid documents posted after Monday, January 14, 2019, will allow for online bid submission only. Vendors must register as a Plan Taker for any opportunity they are interested in; this will enable the Vendor to download the Bid Call Document, receive Addenda email notifications, and download all documents without the watermark “preview” on them. The opportunity can however be previewed with a watermark on it (only PDF’s), without creating an account. 

How do I create an account with bids&tenders?
