The Procurement Act and Regulation govern the public procurement process in New Brunswick. The procurement method used, such as public tendering, or tendering by invitation only is generally determined based on the estimated dollar value of the good or service that is required. In addition to legislation, the Province of New Brunswick is also a participant in a number of trade agreements. For more information on the trade agreements please see Legislation and Agreements. View the summary table of the dollar value thresholds for government departments for public and invited tendering.
