Doing Business with Us
Elections Ontario’s procurement policy is based on the Broader Public Service Directive (BPS) and this directive guides our acquisition of goods and services. The BPS Directive process is fair, open, transparent, competitive, and a geographically neutral process, which is accessible to all qualified vendors.
The steps to access and bid on opportunities are as follows:
- Check www.merx.com or www.biddingo.com for Elections Ontario opportunities.
- Review our current opportunities listed on these two sites to determine if there is a fit with your organization’s business offerings.
- Elections Ontario uses both MERX and Biddingo to post solicitations and it is the responsibility of the Vendor / Proponent to have a subscription (monthly or yearly) to download the bid documents. You may also pay on an individual basis for each bid solicitation that you wish to download.
- Follow the instructions included within the bid documents if you are going to respond with a proposal to the bid.
In the event that Elections Ontario requires outside vendors to support its projects, Elections Ontario may make use of the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) Vendor Of Record (VOR) Program whenever possible.
