PurchasingThe Town of Sidney will seek to procure goods and services from reliable suppliers, recognizing that although price is important, other elements of value, including quality, experience, environmental impact, ability to deliver at required times, service and customer relations, constitute the total cost to the Town.
Where it may be deemed advantageous for the Town of Sidney, participation in "Group Purchasing" shall be pursued. The Town of Sidney is a member of the Greater Victoria Joint Purchasing Group, chaired by the City of Victoria purchasing department.
The Town ensures that the methods of procurement for goods and services are competitive when possible. The level of external competition is based on the dollar value and nature of the specific purchase. In compliance with the Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement, all procurement of goods and services over $75,000, and construction projects over $200,000, shall be advertised nationally using the Province of BC Bid website.
