Strategic Procurement is a division of Service New Brunswick. We manage the procurement process for the purchase of goods and services for departments, agencies and school districts. The role of Strategic Procurement is to maximize competition to achieve the best value for money while ensuring that all suppliers who wish to compete for government contracts have a fair and open opportunity to do so.
For information regarding Construction procurements, please visit the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure website.
The public procurement process is governed by the Procurement Act in the Province of New Brunswick and must adhere to the principles of being fair, open and transparent. All jurisdictions across Canada follow a similar model for public procurement which includes open competition for government contracts through a public tender process. To learn more, please see Procurement Process.
The Government of New Brunswick spends on average more than $500 million on goods and services each year. We buy everything from office supplies, heavy equipment, IT services, consulting services and much more. To learn more about what we buy, please see Tenders or browse our current tenders on the New Brunswick Opportunities Network (NBON). If you are not currently a registered vendor, you can register free of charge by filing out the vendor registration form.
All GNB public tenders are advertised on our web based e-tendering system, the New Brunswick Opportunities Network (NBON). Vendors are encouraged to register, free of charge, to gain access to thousands of tender opportunities posted every year. To learn more, please see Procurement Process.
Federal, provincial and territorial governments are all parties to the Canadian Free Trade Agreement, which requires that government tender notices be publicly advertised via the web. The Internal Trade Secretariat maintains a website, MARCAN where you find links to all websites that publish tender notices for procurement opportunities across Canada. See the doing business section of the MARCAN page for more information.
