York Region is modernizing its electronic procurement practices
York Region is now accepting electronic bid submissions(eRFP) for selected Requests for Proposals. Please refer to the bid details for each procurement to determine if the bid is being accepted electronically.
Effective July 9th, York Region has made access to download bid documents free of charge to vendors who have a subscription to the bidsandtenders.ca online procurement portal. York Region will no longer be charging vendors any additional document fees.
The Region’s vendors who do not already have a paid subscription to the portal, are invited to purchase an unlimited annual $165 subscription fee to see all bid opportunities posted by York Region and close to 200 other organizations that use the portal. For those who place fewer bids, a pay-per-bid fee of $45 per download can be purchased instead. The fee is applied only when bidding, with all bid documents available for preview entirely online before payment is required.
