Tenders & Requests for Proposals (RFPs)
The Town of Florenceville-Bristol regularly obtains supplies, materials, and services, and looks to do so in a timely and cost effective manner. The Town often procures goods and services via tenders and requests for proposals that are advertised online, as well as in the local newspapers and our website. We are committed to ensuring the highest quality for the lowest price. Standardized purchasing procedures gives all suppliers a fair opportunity to do business with the Town of Florenceville-Bristol.
We proceed with a public tendering process for procurement of Goods, Services or Construction at a value over $121,200 excluding tax.
For goods and services that are below the amounts noted above, the Town will regularly obtain quotations to help ensure that pricing remains competitive. All departmental expenditures, including goods and services obtained that exceed $10,000 unbudgeted expenditures or $25,000 budgeted expenditures, require a motion of Town Council.
All tenders and requests for proposals exceeding the above limits must be on the New Brunswick Opportunities Network (NBON) for a minimum of 10 calendar days. Newspaper advertisements and our website are occasionally used in addition to the NBON electronic system.
