Attention! As the transition to CanadaBuys is ongoing, Supply Manual references to ABE are to be interpreted as a generic system reference only. Users of the SAP Ariba environment should adapt their activities accordingly.

Buyers are advised to consult the tools available on CanadaBuys for guidance and procedures on completing procurement transactions in the SAP Ariba environment.

Unless the bid solicitation specifically requires bids to be made in Canadian currency, bids that are made in a foreign currency must be converted to Canadian currency for evaluation. The Bank of Canada rate published by 16:30 ET on the bid closing date, or on another date specified in the bid solicitation, must be applied as a conversion factor to the bids made in foreign currency.
