Online Bidding Service

The City of Sarnia is launching a new eProcurement Tool!

The Purchasing Department at the City of Sarnia is pleased to announce that as of August 1, 2017 we have launched a fully-integrated online eProcurement tool which allows vendors to view, register and submit bids entirely online in one quick, easy and convenient location.

Vendors who do not already have a paid subscription are invited to purchase an unlimited annual subscription fee of $165.00 from eSolutions Group Bids & Tenders e-Procurement platform at www.bidsandtenders.ca or sarnia.bidsandtenders.ca.  For those who do less bidding, a one-time fee of $45.00 per download can be purchased.  Bid documents can be pre-viewed entirely online before payment is required.

When creating an account, Bidders select commodity code(s) for goods, services and construction and the Bidding System will notify the Vendor by email of any Bid opportunities matching their commodity code selection.

The unlimited subscription will provide Vendors with the following benefits and services:

  • Unlimited access to register for all bid opportunities Powered by eSolutionsGroup Bids & Tenders Software across Canada
  • Automatic notifications of new bid opportunities, addenda, site meeting reminders & bid results
  • Unlimited use of online submissions, document downloads and addenda notices
  • Unlimited category subscription for bid matching
  • Instant access to bid results
  • Customized vendor dashboard that allows quick access to active opportunities and bid history
  • Self-serve profile management
  • Ability to add up to 10 contacts to your account
  • Ability to register for the Emergency Contact database


We invite you to attend our free online webinar where we will provide a hands-on live demonstration of the new tool.

You will learn how to:

  • Create a vendor account
  • View & find bid opportunities
  • Submit and withdraw a bid online
  • Explore the vendor dashboard
  • Manage your bid history­­­­­­­­­­­­


We value your time and appreciate your participation.   Your Feedback is important to us and we hope to see you there!
