Vendors invited to sessions about new eProcurement Tool

WHITBY, ON February 27, 2017

The Regional Municipality of Durham, Finance Department would like to remind vendors of upcoming sessions related to the launch of an integrated, online eProcurement Tool—a product that will allow vendors to view, register and submit bids online in one quick, easy and convenient location.

WHEN:

An in-person demonstration session will be held on Thursday, March 2, from 6 to 8 p.m

WHERE:

The Regional Municipality of Durham Headquarters, 605 Rossland Road East, Whitby, Room LL-C

WHY:

To ensure vendors are familiar with the new platform, they are invited to join one of the following sessions. 

The new eProcurement Tool is a fully electronic method of issuing and accepting bids. It will be phased in, beginning in March; providing a more efficient process for both vendors and the Region of Durham. Once the service is fully electronic, bidders will no longer be required to drop off bid submissions at Regional Headquarters, send via courier, or attend public bid openings.                 

NOTE:

An online session will be held on Tuesday, March 21 from 1 to 2 p.m. Please select this link to RSVP to the upcoming webinar.

To access this new service, vendors are invited to purchase either an unlimited annual subscription at www.bidsandtenders.ca  or durhambidsandtenders.ca or utilize the pay-per-use option. Please note that bidding documents can be previewed entirely online before any payment is required.

Please visit https://durham.bidsandtenders.ca to learn more.
