SaskPower's Promise to Suppliers
SaskPower is committed to fair and transparent procurement processes with world class ethical standards as our guiding principle. The SaskPower procurement process is designed to respect all suppliers, treating each fairly with open and honest competitions. We welcome discussion and dialogue with our suppliers should any feel they are being unjustly treated.
The Position Catalogue documents all the services that information technology (IT) vendors of record must be able to provide.
IT vendors of record must ensure that they have all the necessary skills and qualifications, as listed in the Position Catalogue, before responding to any requests for service.
Each IT vendor of record was provided a paper version of the Position Catalogue when they began working with SaskPower. However, the Position Catalogue identified below will be considered to be the most current and up-to-date version. Please refer to this Position Catalogue prior to responding to any requests for service.
SaskPower uses a third party service called Merx when distributing our opportunities to suppliers. This secure and robust service allows suppliers to provide bids to SaskPower in an electronic form. This is the only way SaskPower receives bids; we do not accept email responses.
SaskPower's procurement opportunities, and any amendments, addenda, clarifications, and further instructions pertaining to those opportunities, is available on Merx. SaskPower does not endorse any other electronic procurement sites for our opportunities. Descriptions of each opportunity can be viewed but suppliers must register to download the opportunity and view the specific requirement. Suppliers can sign up to have Merx is an independent contractor and not an agent, servant, subsidiary or affiliate of SaskPower. SaskPower does not own or control the Merx system and is not responsible for its operation, functioning or malfunctioning.
There is a small cost to suppliers for obtaining and submitting proposals, but this can be paid on an annual basis.
If you are interested in working with SaskPower, please check out Merx FAQs on how to register, obtain bids and place bids with Merx.
