New eTendering System – Announcement
Starting April 1, 2014, BravoSolution is the Ontario government’s new designated electronic tendering service provider, replacing MERX Networks Inc.
BravoSolution is available at www.ontario.ca/tenders.
The new eTendering system hosts procurement opportunities and award notices for Ontario government procurements. Vendor registration is required to review procurement documents.
The system is user-friendly and will feature:
- The ability to download procurement opportunities at no cost to vendors;
- Functionality that can adapt as the government continues to modernize procurement
- The United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) system, a widely-used commodity and service coding system to assist vendors in identifying opportunities of interest
Over the next year, electronic bidding will be available for some procurement opportunities. When electronic bidding is introduced, fees will apply only when submitting a bid.
