The Province has launched the COVID-19 Supply Hub, a made-in-BC online platform to co-ordinate, source and expedite medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) for provincial health authorities to support front-line health workers.
Please direct inquiries that come your way related to offers of medical supplies and PPE to this new platform: gov.bc.ca/supplyhub.
This platform provides a single point of entry to prioritize the thousands of offers and donations for essential supplies from business and other organizations since the onset of the COVID-19 response. It will focus on sourcing supplies for the health care system and frontline workers, though government is also accepting offers for other essentials, like cleaning supplies.
The COVID-19 Supply Hub will be managed under the new Provincial Supply Coordination Unit at Emergency Management BC, in partnership with PHSA, as part of the Province's approach to COVID-19 response and recovery. PHSA is getting inundated with daily with hundreds of generous offers from suppliers and donors, and as such, we welcome this assistance in verifying vendors and products.
The City of Abbotsford’s Council Policy C002-03, Purchasing, Equipment & Supplies describes how and when competitive bids are issued, approval authorization for purchases and contract execution and procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Procurement and Supply Services division is a support service for all City Divisions and a liaison between the vendor community and the City. We provide professional expertise in Procurement, Contracts and Supply Chain Management and ensure fair and transparent procurement processes are being followed.
Procurement assists in sourcing supplies, equipment and services to provide the City departments with best overall value and is authorized to issue contracts. The competitive bid process is managed in accordance with municipal guidelines, policies, legislated trade agreements and provincial laws.
The City of Abbotsford posts the majority of competitive goods and services opportunities over $75K and construction projects over $200K on posted on the BC Bid website.
Competitive opportunity documents are distributed and responses are collected through a cloud base portal called Bonfire.
More information on how and when competitive bids are issued, can be found in the City of Abbotsford’s Council Policy C002-03, Purchasing, Equipment & Supplies.
The City utilizes two main types of procurement competitions:
Tenders are generally for projects with very specific mandatory requirements and most often use a low price evaluation scale to award work (low price).
- Request for Proposal (RFP).
RFP’s often have less mandatory requirements and are evaluated on a number of criteria with less emphasis on price. There is more flexibility with RFP’s to negotiate and clarify items with proponents and no award is guaranteed until execution of a contract. The RFP evaluation process includes a team of evaluators who conduct an individual evaluation and then come together to discuss their results and form a consensus scoring. For most projects the highest ranked proponent based on all of the disclosed criteria (outlined in the RFP), are awarded the work. In some cases a short list will be developed from the initial evaluation and those Proponents will be further evaluated through interviews or demos.
All companies will be sent a formal letter of regret or award for competitive opportunities they have submitted a response to, once the appropriate approvals have been completed. Any Proponent is encouraged to request a debrief of their proposal by contacting the Procurement division. Debriefs will outline the areas of strengths and opportunities in the proposals and specific observations of the evaluation team. The intent of the debrief sessions are to assist Proponents to focus on areas of their Proposals that may be developed for future competitions.
All annual current and awarded opportunities are posted above, on this webpage.
The City of Abbotsford utilizes a Approved Vendor List program for specific services such as electrical, plumbing, HVAC, Graphic Output and Painting for its day to day operations. New service type lists are added to this program throughout the year and the list will be updated here.
We also have an annual Hired Equipment Program in which companies can submit their company information including rates to be added to our call out list.
For all other products or services email a brief introduction of your organization or product and it will be forwarded to the appropriate divisions within the City.
Bonfire is a secure portal to manage procurement competitions. Current Bid Opportunities and Awards can be accessed by clicking on the links as advertised in the City of Abbotsford Opportunities on BC Bid and/or in the Current Bid Opportunities on this page.
