Public Sector Construction Procurement Practices
Update May 21 2019:
BCCA issued two Contractor’s Alerts warning BC contractors of “Onerous Bidding Conditions” on two Prince George construction projects being procured by BC Housing.
Update April 9 2019:
BCCA hosted a number of Ministry and Construction Employer Leaders for a Capital Asset Management Framework (CAMF) Breakfast during Construction Month. You can view the discussed topics in this presentation.
BCCA is focused on developing public sector procurement capacity and improving access to high quality project information through our BidCentral platform.
In the public sector, we believe that adherence to the Capital Asset Management Framework (CAMF) is essential to the fair, open, and transparent procurement process that is an obligation and responsibility of government to taxpayers.
Success rests on a contractor’s ability to access high quality project information from any region in BC, and on an owner’s ability to receive multiple compliant and professional bids from quality local contractors.
BCCA will continue to support BC’s public sector be offering the highest level of industry knowledge and expertise available.
Recent advocacy efforts include:
We continue to work with the Ministry of Citizen’s Services to support their procurement innovation strategy and the re-visioning of BC Bid to ensure that the unique needs of construction are met.
