LINDSAY, ON – Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) and the Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board (PVNCCDSB) are pleased to announce the launch of a fully-integrated online procurement tool that will allow vendors to view, register, and submit bids entirely online in one quick, easy, and convenient location.

Vendors are invited to attend an upcoming session at Trillium Lakelands District School Board. Participants will be provided with a hands-on live demonstration of the new tool, including information on:

• Creating a vendor account
• Navigating through the software
• Submitting and withdrawing a bid online
• Exploring the vendor dashboard
• Managing bid history

Highlights of the online e-procurement tool for vendors include:

• always online, always accessible
• all calculations are done automatically
• vendors can preview bid documents prior to registering
• built in bid compliancy checker for 100% compliant bids
• flexibility to modify and withdraw bids in advance of the closing time and date
