Here's how you receive and complete your tender forms for Newfoundland and Labrador tenders: $5000 and above.

Internet (E-Mail)


As tenders are issued by the Government Purchasing Agency, you automatically receive all the standard tender forms by E-Mail. You may elect to browse through them on your computer to decide which ones you want to complete, then print the ones you wish to have in hard copy. Each tender will be on a separate form, which is an official document. You will notice that your name will already appear on the form as the bidding company. All you have to do is complete your bid, sign the form and submit it to the purchaser's office before the closing date.

In the case of tenders that require additional documents, you will only receive notification of the tender. You will be told in each case what the tender is about, and how much it will cost to order the package. The package will include the tender form with your name and address, as well as all attachments. You can request that the package be sent by courier, or be held for pick-up at the BIDS office in St. JohnÌs , NF. The cost for the package will be deducted from your deposit account.

Addenda to any tenders will be automatically sent to you by E-Mail. This may be as an addendum notice or it may be a re-issue of the original tender. As an Internet subscriber, you also have the ability to electronically access the entire data bank of outstanding tenders. Should you find a tender you wish to complete, you can select the "I wish to order this tender" option, and the tender ordering screen will appear. When you complete the information requested on the screen, we will receive your request by E-Mail, and will in turn send you the requested tender document by E-Mail. It will be, again, complete with your company name and address. This same form can be used to order: "additional tender documents" where they are required as part of the tender.
