City of Barrie Tender Process is going paperless!

As part of our commitment to embrace innovation and improve how we do business, the City is excited to announce that on October 15, 2018, our open tender process is going paperless.

After the successful launch on May 1 of our new e-tendering platform, we are now expanding to a fully electronic submission process. Effective October 15, 2018, ALL open procurements will be submitted electronically (including all Request for Procurements (RFP), High Score Request for Quotations, and Low-bid Request for Quotations).
