Procurement is responsible for the purchase of all goods, services and contracts required by the City of Airdrie, and for ensuring that these purchases are fair and transparent.
Procurement supports other City departments with:
- tendering and competitive bidding
- providing a standard review process
- developing and maintaining relationships with suppliers
Procurement Services has the ability to dispose of surplus items through online auction sites. You can access the link below to obtain a current list of items for auction at Canadian Public Auction at www.canadianpublicauction.com and Michener Allen Auction at www.maauctions.com
The Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC) is a free tool that lets public and private sector users manage, advertise, distribute and download public purchasing opportunities for goods, services and construction in Alberta.
With APC, purchasers advertise opportunities for tender and vendors find opportunities to sell their products or services. Procurement opportunities can be viewed at Alberta Purchasing Connection if they fall into the category requiring public postings.
The objective of the City’s Procurement Policy is to ensure that goods and services are acquired through a fair, open, transparent and competitive process that uniformly balances the interests of taxpayers with the fair and equitable treatment of suppliers. Procurement Services uses competitive purchasing as the primary strategy in the procurement of goods and general services. Current opportunities are posted on the City’s website and when required, opportunities are posted on a government website www.purchasingconnection.ca.
The City of Airdrie has standard purchase order terms and conditions that are applicable to all purchase orders and purchases with the City.
