Work with BCLC!

BCLC does business with a lot of organizations across British Columbia. If you're a supplier and you want to work with us, there are a few things you need to know. First, BCLC is a Crown corporation, so there are strict rules we must follow when working with external vendors or suppliers. There are processes and procedures potential vendors and suppliers must follow in order to begin working with us.

Your first stop should be the B.C. Bid® website where all government organizations post bid invitations and all the documentation you'll need for a successful bid, such as a Request for Proposal, Request for Information, Invitation to Quote or Request for Qualification.

Our Procurement Department will source goods and services through qualified suppliers using transparent, equitable, fair and ethical bidding processes. Purchasing decisions are made to provide the best life cycle value for dollars spent, while giving the best possible service to internal and external customers.

How to Respond to a BCLC Bid Competition

If you are interested, please follow the response instructions included in each bid document carefully. Responses must be received by the closing date and time. Electronic copies are preferred. However, a hard copy may be requested. In the case of a hard copy, the response must be correctly labelled as specified in the bid document. It may be sent to BCLC's head office by registered mail or prepaid courier, or delivered by hand. Any costs incurred by bidders in the preparation and presentation of their quote will be at their own expense.

BCLC’s Merchant Complaint Review Process (MCRP) is intended to provide public access to a consistent, fair and timely review process to deal with complaints concerning BCLC's procurement process, including supplier competition and contract awards.
