Selling to the City

The City welcomes the opportunity to work with suppliers. Any individual or company may do business with the City of Edmonton, when they are able to provide the needed products or services which meet our budget, quality expectation, delivery timeline and other criteria which may be in place for a particular product. 

Procurement/Tendering Opportunities

The City of Edmonton is now using SAP Ariba and posts procurement opportunities, known as sourcing events in SAP Ariba Discovery. Suppliers interested in bidding on a City sourcing event must submit their bid online using SAP Ariba. The City no longer accepts paper bid submissions.

The City uses the Ariba Network to issue purchase orders and receive invoices from contracted suppliers. 

See for more information.

Due to the vast number of suppliers who are able and interested in providing goods and services to the City of Edmonton, a list of preferred suppliers is not maintained.

Procedural Barriers

We may not be able to do business with you if we are already committed to a contract with someone else, or if you are:

  • In a conflict of interest
  • Contracting with Parties who are in Litigation with the City
  • Lacking required certifications, insurance, or bonding

Our Standards and Policies

Professionalism and Fairness in Purchasing

The Corporate Procurement & Supply Services branch proudly follows the ethical codes of the Supply Chain Management Association, the National Institute of Government Purchasers, and the City of Edmonton itself.

The City is committed to ensuring fair treatment of bidders in its tendering processes and to providing feedback on bid evaluations.

Sustainable Procurement Policy

Every purchase has intended and unintended economic, environmental and social impact. Sustainable procurement is about consciously considering those impacts and seeking to make intentional positive community contributions.

The City will integrate economic, quality, environmental and social value considerations into procurement processes for goods, services and construction projects, to the extent permitted by the City’s trade agreement obligations. 

The umbrella of City Policy C556A, Sustainable Procurement, includes ethical standards, environmental sustainability and social value considerations.

Living Wage Policy

Edmonton City Council approved a revised Living Wage Policy for City of Edmonton Employees and Employees of Contracted Services on November 5, 2019.

Administration implemented the living wage criteria for staff of contracted services who perform duties on City Property — including parks, roadways and facilities.

Living wage is generally defined as the minimum amount a person must earn to pay for the basic costs of living for oneself and one’s family within a specific geographic community. 

Unlike minimum wage, which is set by the Provincial Government and requires all employers pay at least the minimum wage, a Living Wage is not required by law. Edmonton’s Living wage is calculated annually by the Edmonton Social Planning Council.
