Competitive Tender

A competitive tender ensures that the procurement of goods, services and construction works is fair, equitable, transparent and competitive.

Its goal is to obtain the best overall value for UBC customers and secure value for money by protecting public interest. Procuring goods, services - including construction - over $75,000 CAD (exclusive of taxes, duties, customs and freight charges) may require a competitive tender process.
