Access and submit tenders

Viewing sourcing requests

Suppliers can view, register their interest, and respond to Council sourcing requests through SAP Ariba. You will need to have a registered SAP Business Network account to receive an invitation to bid and respond to Council requests.  To submit an expression of interest to do business with Council and register in SAP Ariba please complete Council’s supplier self-registration request form.

An email notification will be sent to you via SAP Ariba with an invitation to participate in an RFQ or sourcing event initiated by Council.

Automated notification emails

The notification emails you could receive regarding published RFx events are:

  • Public RFx Tender Notification - all suppliers that have registered interest for a UNSPSC product category will receive an invitation to tender via SAP Ariba. 

  • Restricted RFx Tender Notification - Council may elect to invite specific vendors that have registered on the Supplier Portal in SAP Ariba to participate in an RFx given the Sourcing Strategy or specific business requirements. You must be registered on the Supplier Portal  with Council in SAP Ariba and have a SAP Business Network account to receive an invitation to bid and respond.
