Advocacy: Procurement

The St. John’s Board of Trade is involved with both the federal and provincial governments with the aim to improve procurement opportunities for their members.

We are lobbying for

  1. Consistent procedures and rules for all government tenders
  2. Mechanisms put in place to dialogue and educated bureaucrats involved in government procurement
  3. Improvement in the way specifications and tenders are drafted

We need to move our government tendering into the 21 Century.
