New eProcurement system launches in Yukon

New eProcurement system launches in Yukon

A new eProcurement system that will make government procurement easier, faster and more reliable for businesses is now live.

The Government of Yukon has replaced the current Tender Management System (TMS) with a new, more efficient platform called bids&tenders. The online system has features that will streamline procurement, including:

  • electronic bidding that includes supplier registration, tender notifications and electronic submissions for suppliers;
  • contract management that meets the standards of our financial systems;
  • spend analytics for reporting and planning, leading to more strategic procurement and greater transparency; and
  • vendor performance review program management that includes evaluation and tracking of contract performance.

An online submission system will reduce the need for paper bids, flag compliance errors for bidders and improve spending analysis across government.

Businesses interested in bidding on contracts with the Government of Yukon are encouraged to sign up for an account on bids&tenders. Online training is available to assist with creating an account or submitting a bid in the new system.

We are excited to launch this new eProcurement system to provide a faster and more accessible, reliable and transparent tendering system for businesses. Moving to online bids will save businesses time and money while maximizing the economic benefit for Yukoners. This is part of our enduring commitment to support the economy and drive competition and innovation in the Yukon.

Minister of Highway and Public Works Richard Mostyn
