Our Vision

We will be recognized as an engaged, empowered team who is a leader in Supply Chain Management offering value to our customers through superior, consistent, integrated customer service and support.

We will be seen as a highly desired place where qualified people want to work, live, grow and play.

The Supply Chain Management (SCM) department provides support for the purchase of goods and services to meet the current and future needs to the Municipality in a cost effective manner through accountable, fair, open and transparent processes in accordance with relative trade agreements and Public Procurement Law.

SCM ensures that vendors are treated fairly and without bias by publicly posted opportunities on Alberta Purchasing Connection that exceed treaty thresholds. This public posting process allows all interested vendors to provide submissions that will be evaluated in a consistent manner, utilizing quantifiable criteria stipulated in our market solicitation documents.

SCM provides objectivity and fairness monitoring during the evaluation process of submissions to make certain that all bids are reviewed according to the objective criteria, and that all proponents are treated equitably. All awards of business and all decisions are defensible to audit, council, or public scrutiny and challenge.

Request for Tenders are opened and read out publically, demonstrating that the process is open and transparent. SCM’s enforcement of compliancy regarding mandatory criteria ensures that only those vendors that fully met established requirements are provided the opportunity to actually provide goods and services to the Municipality.

We use the Alberta Purchasing Connection to publicize bid opportunities and follow the Agreement on Internal Trade to ensure a fair and transparent process.

The Municipality follows the requirements of the Agreement on Internal Trade and the New West Partnership Trade Agreement, which require fair and open tendering of procurement activities. All tendering opportunities are posted on the Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC).

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is a well-managed, financially stable municipal government. Supply Chain Management provides competent and professional materials management and contract services to meet the needs of the citizens of this Municipality.
