Checklist for preparing a bid

Are you ready to bid on a Government of Canada tender opportunity? This resource guide will walk you through what you need to know to prepare your bid and ensure that it’s complete before you submit.

Submitting a bid to the Bid Receiving Unit using Connect

This resource guide provides bidders with the steps for submitting bids to Public Services and Procurement Canada’s Bid Receiving Unit (BRU) in the region indicated in the Bid Solicitation Document through Canada Post’s Connect Service.  This guide is not intended to provide technical support for using the product. For instructions on your role as a user of the Connect service, contact Canada Post’s Connect Service or refer to the Supplier’s Guide provided by the BRU.

Registering a joint venture supplier in SAP Ariba

This resource guide will walk you through the process of registering a joint venture in SAP Ariba to bid on a Request for Proposal (RFP) by teaming up with other businesses. Keep in mind that only the lead business in a joint venture can create an Ariba account. 

In this example, ABC Inc. has decided to join with DEF Inc. to create a joint venture and is designated as the lead business.  

Adding users and assigning roles in your business’s SAP Ariba account

This resource guide will walk you through, as an account administrator, how to create roles in your SAP Ariba business profile, as well as how to assign users to those roles. While only one account can be created per business number, you can add up to 250 users to your business profile, with assigned roles to limit or maximize their account access. This means if multiple individuals in your business want to participate in bids with the Government of Canada, you can easily add them as users.
