Government of New Brunswick

The New Brunswick Opportunities Network
All GNB public tenders for Goods and Services 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.

  • Access is free for vendors and electronic downloading of all Strategic Procurement tender documents is also free. 
  • Electronic bidding is offered on selected tenders.
  • In addition to tenders issued by Strategic Procurement on behalf of government departments and agencies, NBON also contains tender notices from other public sector bodies such as Municipalities, Crown Corporations including NB Power, Universities, Community Colleges, and the Atlantic Lottery Corporation. 
  • The NBON also allows vendors to register with Strategic Procurement and create a “product profile” to indicate the products and services they have to offer. This provides Strategic Procurement with a list of vendors to invite to non-public lower value tender opportunities. The system can automatically send email notifications to vendors when tenders are posted for products and services they sell.

Registration and access to the NBON is free of charge and there is no charge to download tender documents issued by Strategic Procurement.

Tenders across Canada
Federal, provincial and territorial governments are all parties to the Canadian Free Trade Agreement, which requires that all provinces post their tender notices electronically 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.
