UBC, as a publicly-funded entity, is bound by internal and external regulatory frameworks. To be compliant, purchases of goods and services in excess of 75,000 will typically be publicly posted in a competitive bid process.
A competitive tender ensures that the procurement of goods, services and construction works is fair, open, public and competitive. Competitive tenders factor in proponents’ expertise, technical capabilities, services, work methodology and financial submissions in order to obtain the best solution, at the best price, within our deadlines.
If your budget should be spent by the end of the fiscal year (March 31st), please submit your requisitions prior to December 10th.
