Under the authority of the Toronto Police Services Board, the Toronto Police Service's Purchasing Services is responsible for the procurement of all goods and services required by the organization in an open, transparent and fair manner.

All acquisitions of goods and services are performed in accordance with various international, interprovincial and local trade treaties, agreements and by-laws such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Ontario and Quebec Trade and Cooperation Agreement (OQTCA), the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), the Business Discrimination Act and the Canadian Economic Trade Agreement (CETA).

Driving Innovation

At this time, the Service is reviewing its processes to make it easier to work with vendors and bring innovation to the Service in a fair and efficient manner.

Bid Opportunities

The Service is committed to promoting purchasing methods and contract awards that encourage open competitive bidding processes. Generally, all public tenders, bids, and requests for proposals greater than $50,000 are posted on Merx.

For purchases under $50,000, the Service may elect to pursue a Request for Quotation to a minimum of three vendors.

The Service is an active participant in the Police Co-operative Purchasing Group and other shared government and Municipal shared purchase agreements.
