Purchasing Principles

The City of Quinte West strives to purchase and supply the proper equipment, materials, supplies, and services when needed, with the right quality, the right quantity, at the right price, from the right source, and at the right time using a competitive process that is open, transparent, and fair to all.


The City operates using a combination centralized/decentralized purchasing system.  Only formal bid documents where the spend is expected to meet or exceed the $40,000 threshold are mandated to be posted to this website.  Each department has delegated authority to purchase in accordance with the requirements of the Purchasing Policy By-law for spends less than this amount and their appearance on this website is discretionary.

Tender openings are public, usually conducted within minutes of the closing time.  Request for Proposal openings are not public.  Total tender amounts (not line item) are public information, and the names of Respondents to a Request for Proposal (not their proposal detail or dollar value) are public information and will be shared through this website as soon as possible following a closing.

Providing any given spend can be awarded within the predetermined budget allocation, the Department Head has authority to award without futher Council approval.
