In an effort to improve the way the Township does business, the Township of Lake of Bays is enhancing its current procurement processes by simplifying, streamlining and fostering greater competition through an e-procurement solution. An online submission process for bidding on tenders will enable suppliers to view, register and submit bids online through a user-friendly platform.
The e-procurement solution for bids and tenders is now live and can be accessed through the Township’s website. The Township is using a platform called bids&tenders, which facilitates a 100% digital, paperless, procurement process that allows for 24/7 access to bidding. This transition benefits both suppliers and the Township by reducing costs, lessening administrative burdens and encouraging greater competition.
“We are excited to launch our new e-procurement solution that will make bidding on tenders easier and faster for our valued suppliers.” Says Carrie Sykes, Director of Corporate Services/Clerk. “This is part of our ongoing commitment to improve the way we do business and deliver quality services to our residents.”
