Register as a supplier
The Government is moving federal procurement online, and changing the way government and suppliers interact to buy and sell goods and services. During this transition, you may be able to bid on some tender opportunities through the electronic procurement solution (on the SAP Ariba web-based tool), while others will continue to require bid submission through other methods such as a Public Services Procurement Canada (PSPC) bid receiving unit or electronically through the Canada Post e-post Connect application. Each procurement opportunity will clearly detail the delivery method to be used to submit a bid.
There are two types of registration for suppliers:
- Register in Supplier Registration Information (SRI) to obtain your procurement business number. This number is currently required for award of contracts that are not processed through the e-procurement solution.
- If you are already registered in SRI, verify that your supplier registration information is up-to-date.
- Register in SAP Ariba to prepare for the Government’s move to electronic procurement.
- If you are already registered in SAP Ariba, log in to verify your supplier details.
