Current Opportunity for Vendors Serving the South Island Region
The City of Victoria has just released a Request for Information (RFI) for suppliers, contractors, and consultants wishing to identify social value elements of their business to develop a Social Value Supplier Directory.
As CCSPI members look to connect their procurement spending to local community benefit, there is an interest in identifying social enterprises, social purpose businesses and vendors that are intentionally delivering environmental, community and social benefits.
This directory will inform local governments across Vancouver Island and the Coast region of vendors whose practices align with their goals.
For more information please refer to RFI documentation by clicking below.
Please note: Submissions will be received up to 4:00:00 p.m. Victoria time WEDNESDAY, JULY 15, 2020.
The RFI documentation contains a fillable form which, once completed, can be uploaded electronically at: https://victoria.bonfirehub.ca Please note: Hardcopies will NOT be accepted.
The City of Victoria is using the BonfireHub public portal for the submission process. Please contact Bonfire at https://victoria.bonfirehub.ca/portal/support for technical questions related to submission of documents.
CCSPI will host an accompanying informational webinar on June 29
This informational webinar will help vendors interested in responding to the RFI to: Understand social procurement, review the RFI definitions, concepts and ways to respond, answer questions and meet City of Victoria procurement staff.
