Let’s Talk Procurement

Consultation has concluded

How the Government of the Northwest Territories buys and contracts goods and services (known as procurement) has a big impact on the NWT economy.

As much as possible, this investment (over $260 million a year) should benefit NWT businesses and residents.

But the last time our government reviewed its purchasing policies was in 2010 and a lot of things have changed since then.

It’s important that our policies reflect the needs of our businesses today – so we need to know what you think is working or what needs to be changed when it comes to our government’s procurement process.

What’s important to us

As much as possible, government procurement should benefit NWT businesses and residents.

Because government money is also ‘your’ money, it is important that our procurement policies:

  • are transparent
  • are fair
  • are competitive;
  • and maximize the value of the taxpayers’ dollars.

How will my contribution make a difference?

Any thoughts and observations – and especially experiences and ideas – that you can provide to us through this platform will be shared with the advisory panel as they consider their recommendations.

This is an opportunity for you to join the NWT-wide conversation – we want you to tell us what matters to you.

Where can I find more information?

How we’re reviewing these policies

We’ve hired a panel of independent procurement professionals with lots of experience to get the conversation started. They’ll be hosting online engagement sessions where you can discuss any topics related to procurement, ask questions and share your feedback.

We want to highlight that this is a conversation – we want you to tell us what matters to you.
