New E-Bidding System - bids&tenders

bids&tenders is a leading digital procurement platform that connects buyers and suppliers through an online marketplace across a variety of geographic regions, sectors and industries. The bids&tenders platform streamlines the bid submission process for businesses through an intuitive, electronic user interface.

How it works:
Procurement opportunities will be posted on the City’s homepage of bids&tenders e-bidding system, and with notifications on the BC Bid website along with project documents will be downloadable and available for viewing, which allows businesses to easily register, search, and submit responses online. There will be no fees or charges for accessing or downloading the City’s opportunities via bids&tenders.

Vendors will be required to register for a free bids&tenders account.

If a vendor already has a bids&tenders account they do not need to register again. The City of New Westminster’s bid opportunities will be visible to all vendors with an account, dependent on the commodity classifications selected by the vendor.

Please sign up here in preparation for the City’s launch.

During the account creation, select commodity codes for goods and services and bids&tenders will notify the vendor by email of bid opportunities matching their commodity code selection. This ensures receipt of the latest bid information and updates via email. Competitive bid documents, addenda and award information will be posted on the City’s bids&tenders website and a notice on BCBid.

Businesses will be solely responsible for ensuring their vendor account information is maintained and accurate.

Successful bidders will be able to electronically submit certificates of insurance, WorkSafeBC letters and other required documentation, directly through bids&tenders. Documents will reside in bids&tenders database and suppliers will be notified when documents require updating.
