In support of the COVID-19 response here in New Brunswick, NB Power has moved to essential services only. This means that all tenders/RFPs currently open will be extended for two (2) weeks at which time the situation will be re-assessed. We will monitor the situation weekly and will be posting any additional changes to our tendering processing (i.e. how we accept tenders) on our website at nbpower.com .
NB Power makes approximately 15-20,000 purchases annually, many of which result in positive and long-term relationships. When making these purchases, NB Power follows provincial legislation, namely the Procurement Act and the Crown Construction Contracts Act, as well as other relevant laws and policies. The Acts and the Regulations can be found on the provincial government website.
NB Power uses different procurement methods to meet its needs. Larger purchases are often made by issuing a Request for Tender or Request for Proposal which is posted on the New Brunswick Opportunities Network. Smaller purchases are typically made through a Request for Quote where a limited number of suppliers are contacted directly. In a small percentage of cases, NB Power negotiates with specific suppliers based on clearly defined exemptions that are outlined within the Procurement Act & Regulations.
If you have products or services to offer and would like us to be aware of your offerings, please send any relevant information, such as your website or product line card, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
