Find out how to sell your service and how we procure our required goods and services.
The Halton District School Board Purchasing Department is the centralized group responsible for procuring goods and services on behalf of the Board. Its goal is to obtain the best possible value and service to meet the requirements of schools and staff.
Competitive bidding is the foundation of all Halton District School Board purchases, and represents the gateway of opportunity for vendors. The Purchasing Department provides significant opportunities for responsive and responsible vendors and looks forward to working with vendors who are committed to product quality, timely delivery and innovative solutions. The Board's
Procurement Administrative Procedure and the Broader Public Sector Procurement Directive provides purchasing guidelines and instructions for vendors.
The Purchasing Department invites vendors to learn about the Board’s purchasing needs, to be part of the competitive bidding process, and join the many vendors who do do business with the Halton District School Board. All requests for tenders, quotations, pre-qualifications and proposals are advertised on the
Biddingo bidding system.
It is the responsibility of each potential vendor to monitor and review the Biddingo bidding system to be aware of business opportunities presented by the Halton District School Board.
The Halton District School Board may participate in the Halton Cooperative Purchasing Group as well as OECM standing agreements, VORs or bidding processes from time to time as required by the Board.
