Doing Business with the SCDSB

The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) utilizes Bids&Tenders as their bidding platform. Bids&tenders makes it easy to review, register for, and submit bids electronically. To subscribe or view current bidding opportunities visit SCDSB Bid Opportunities on Bids&Tenders.

The SCDSB participates in cooperative procurements with various buying groups. These include, but are not limited to the Ontario Education Collaborative Marketplace (OECM), Ministry of Public and Business Service Delivery, Georgian Bay Area Public Purchasing Cooperative, as well as any other available public sector partners.

Only prequalified contractors and consultants that are on the board’s approved lists are invited to bid on construction and design projects. The SCDSB refreshes these lists from time to time through a prequalification process posted on Bids&Tenders. For major projects (e.g., new schools), the board will issue a separate prequalification for both consulting and contracting.
