For suppliers that want to work with us, there are a few things to consider.
BCLC does business with a lot of organizations across British Columbia. As a Crown corporation, our contract award practices are subject to the requirements of trade agreements including the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) and the New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA). The Gaming Control Act also stipulates requirements for specific types of vendors doing business with BCLC. There are processes, procedures and certifications that 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. 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, is advertised here.
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’re interested, please follow the response instructions included in each bid document carefully. Responses must be received by the closing date and time. BCLC conducts all bid processes through a web-based platform. 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 of complaints concerning BCLC's procurement process, including supplier competition and contract awards.
