Welcome to the Town of Oakville’s bid opportunities website

Effective October 31, 2017, the Town of Oakville joined local municipalities in using bids&tenders™ for digital procurement management. If you are not a current subscriber to bids&tenders™, you will need to subscribe as a vendor to receive notice of opportunities and submit bids to the Town of Oakville. An unlimited Subscription to bids&tenders™ is just $165/year. Pay once and access all agencies using bids&tenders in Canada. For those who choose not to subscribe, there is a one-time fee option of $45.00 per bid opportunity.

The Town of Oakville does not charge any document, project or administrative fees to bidders. The annual subscription to bids&tenders is the only charge you will incur to place unlimited bids for town business.

After creating a bidding system vendor account with bids&tenders, you can select commodity codes for goods and services you supply and the bidding system will notify you by email of the bid opportunities matching your commodity code selection(s). If you do not already have a bids&tenders account, you can create one here. (https://oakville.bidsandtenders.ca/Module/Tenders/en/Vendor/Create/b0174368-d7b1-4767-ad1a-7fdb104e96ec)
