Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) is responsible for co-ordinating the acquisition of goods and services to ensure that an open and competitive purchasing process is followed. In order to assist the Board and to provide our vendors with a timely and cost-saving mechanism to view and bid on our opportunities, we are partnering with an electronic tendering service.
Competitive procurement is the contractual acquisition (purchase or lease) by TLDSB for assets of any kind, whether goods or services, enabling all qualified, responsible vendors to compete in a fair and open process. We aim to ensure impartiality and transparency throughout our procurement process.
Purchasing ensures that all required goods and/or services are acquired in a timely fashion, at the correct quantity, quality and price and are procured in a professional manner that adheres to Board Policies and Procedures, the Broader Public Sector Procurement Directive, the Ontario Education Act, the Broader Public Sector Expenses Directive, and all other legislated areas as they apply.
