Procurement

Selling to the Government of New Brunswick

Who are we?
Strategic Procurement is a division of Service New Brunswick. We manage the procurement process for the purchase of goods and services for departments, agencies and school districts. The role of Strategic Procurement is to maximize competition to achieve the best value for money while ensuring that all suppliers who wish to compete for government contracts have a fair and open opportunity to do so.

What is the process?
The public procurement process is governed by the Procurement Act in the Province of New Brunswick and must adhere to the principles of being fair, open and transparent. All jurisdictions across Canada follow a similar model for public procurement which includes open competition for government contracts through a public tender process. To learn more, please see Procurement Process.
   

What do we buy?
The Government of New Brunswick spends on average more than $500 million on goods and services each year. We buy everything from office supplies, heavy equipment, IT services, consulting services and much more. To learn more about what we buy, please see Tenders or browse our current tenders on the New Brunswick Opportunities Network (NBON).  If you are not currently a registered vendor, you can register free of charge by filing out the vendor registration form.  
   

How can you participate?
All GNB public tenders are advertised on our web based e-tendering system, the New Brunswick Opportunities Network (NBON). Vendors are encouraged to register, free of charge, to gain access to thousands of tender opportunities posted every year. To learn more, please see Procurement Process.
 
  

How to access tenders across Canada?
Federal, provincial and territorial governments are all parties to the Agreement on Internal Trade, which requires that government tender notices be publically advertised via the web. The Internal Trade Secretariat maintains a website, MARCAN where you find links to all websites that publish tender notices for procurement opportunities across Canada. See the doing business section of the MARCAN page for more information.

Treated unfairly by another province?
If you have reason to believe that you have been treated unfairly in the tendering process conducted by another province, territory or the federal government, please contact us at: NBON@snb.ca. Working with our partners at Intergovernmental Affairs, we will investigate on your behalf.
