Access to Opportunities
The policy of Procurement Services is to invite competitive responses whenever practical and to award contracts on the basis of lowest responsive or most cost effective response.
The majority of acquisitions processed by Procurement Services are posted on the Government of Alberta's electronic tendering system, Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC). Suppliers should obtain solicitation documents from APC to ensure that they receive updates to the documents in a timely manner. The telephone number for the APC Help Desk is 1-780-644-5726, or Toll Free at 310-0000.
If an emergency exists, whereby time does not permit the Procurement Services to obtain pricing through APC, a telephone or fax solicitation may be conducted.
