Searching and Bidding on City Procurement Opportunities

Ariba Discovery : Searching and Bidding on Procurement Opportunities

Suppliers who are interested in bidding on City tendering/sourcing opportunities will need to create an account on Ariba Discovery (for free).

The City no longer accepts paper bid submissions. 

Those with an SAP Ariba account can search for City of Edmonton procurements referred to as event postings and bid electronically on opportunities. 

In Ariba Discovery you can link directly to the City of Edmonton's profile to:

  • View sourcing events
  • Respond to the event
  • Ask publicly viewable questions and view all answers to questions asked by others

Opportunities will continue to be posted on the Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC) with a link to the Ariba Discovery to view the City of Edmonton's sourcing event (tendering opportunity).

A short-term mix of manual and Ariba Network transactions

Only POs sent on the Ariba Network should be invoiced using Ariba.
