Ontario Eliminates Fees on Government Procurement Opportunities
Province Making It Easier and Cheaper for Companies to Do Business with Government

It's cheaper for companies to do business with the Ontario government as it has eliminated the fees that businesses have to pay to access procurement contracts.

Businesses can now submit bids for free on the Ontario Tenders Portal, waiving the previous requirement of a $300 submission fee per bid or $750 annual fee for an unlimited bid for procurement opportunities with the government.

Businesses will now also have free access to the Registration, Appraisal and Qualification System used by the Ministry of Transportation for road maintenance procurements, which previously required businesses to pay a $525 annual fee to access that system.

The elimination of these fees is part of Ontario's plan to make it easier for businesses to submit bids for government contracts, which also includes the designation of 33 per cent of its procurement spending to small and medium-sized businesses by 2020.
