Did you know you can submit certain bids electronically?

July 11, 2018 – Gatineau – Did you know that, no matter where you are in Canada, you can now submit bids against certain Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) tenders electronically using Canada Post’s epost Connect online service?

What are the advantages?

  • It’s faster and more efficient
  • It’s paper-free and green
  • You get a time and date stamp record when you upload your files

Be sure to watch for tenders posted on Buyandsell.gc.ca for which this option is available. These tenders will be clearly identified as accepting bid submission files electronically and they will refer you to instructions on how to go about submitting your files.

This initiative is part of PSPC’s efforts to simplify procurement processes and move to an electronic service that offers a fast, efficient and green alternative to submitting paper documents.

epost Connect is a secure, online service that allows users to share large, confidential files. Some features include:
