Vendor Pre-Qualification

Vendors who have not previously done business with the University of Regina, or who are unknown to Supply Management Services but who wish to submit a tender response, must be pre-qualified. The University of Regina will not accept bids from vendors who are not qualified.

Vendors should be aware that the University of Regina has no obligation to pre-qualify any bidder during a bid process. Vendors requesting pre-qualification are required to complete the Pre-Qualification Form (164 KB) doc The completed form must be sent by fax or e-mail to Supply Management Services.

Vendors are advised that the pre-qualification process takes time to complete and the University of Regina is not obligated to rush pre-qualification. Supply Management Services will provide the evaluation results of the qualifying review by e-mail.

Pre-qualification of vendors for bid opportunities related to AIT and the New West Partnership Agreements posted on Sask Tenders are qualified on a project-to-project basis. In exceptional circumstances the University of Regina may, at its sole discretion, waive the requirement for pre-qualification. However, the University of Regina will not be obligated to exercise its discretion to accept or reject any bid from an unqualified bidder.

Indigenous Engagement

Indigenous suppliers who would like to be included on the University of Regina's Indigenous Supplier directory please complete and return this Pre-Qualification form: Indigenous Supplier Registration Form

The University of Regina’s Indigenous Supplier Directory is designed to support Indigenous businesses in the pursuit of public procurement opportunities. To be designated as an Indigenous supplier, a business must meet the following criteria:

• Sole proprietorship, limited company, cooperative, partnership or not-for-profit organization in which Indigenous peoples own and control at least 51% of the enterprise.
• For joint ventures eligible Indigenous businesses can partner with non-Indigenous businesses. The Indigenous business needs to demonstrate that 33% of the value of the work performed under the contract will be performed by the Indigenous business.

Having a business profile in the directory will increase business visibility and provide opportunities to participate in the University of Regina’s public procurement process. Information collected will assist in creating a supplier profile.
