3. What is a Standing Offer Agreement and how can I be a supplier on a standing offer list?

Standing Offer Agreements provide government departments with goods and/or services at predetermined prices and terms and conditions. These items are purchased on an “as and when required” basis for a specified period.

Like other tenders you must respond during the specified timeframe to be eligible and if you are placed on a standing offer list, it means you have offered to provide your product or service at an agreed upon price for the time period of the contract.

7. How can I find tender opportunities from other organizations?

The Government Purchasing Agency provides a central link to websites for procurement opportunities within the Newfoundland and Labrador public sector. Note: While we are attempting to make the listing of sites as complete and accurate as possible, users should recognize that the list may not contain all sites that publish tender notices for procurement opportunities within the public sector.

As well, you can contact these entities directly or consult their websites to determine where to find public tender opportunities.
