Procurement Principles


We ensure that all eligible proponents that meet the specific requirements and characteristics for a procurement can submit a proposal. Eligibility can vary by trade agreement, so AIMCo considers all activity through the lens of each applicable trade agreement.


We do not extend a preference to a local proponent, nor do we create technical obstacles or timing of events to prevent proponents from submitting bids.


We ensure that the design of a procurement is not constructed to avoid the obligations of trade agreements.


We ensure that tender notices are accessible to all eligible proponents by posting them on Alberta Purchasing Connection (APC).

Frequently Asked Questions


How do I find AIMCo opportunities?

Register on Alberta Purchasing Connection to get notification of posted opportunities. 


Where do I find the term of my contract?

It is usually in the Statement of Work, under 2.1 Term. This is also the place where you will find any allowable extensions.


Do I need to include AIMCo’s contract number on my invoice?

Yes, it is imperative that you include the contract or amendment number on your invoices. This assists AIMCo in processing and paying your invoice efficiently, and ensures it is applied to the correct contract.


What is required for criminal, credit and background checks?

AIMCo does not want any personal information submitted. AIMCo only requires an email from the vendor confirmation that the credit, background and criminal checks have been conducted and are clear. 


How do I know if WCB is required?

If you are going to be working onsite at AIMCo’s Edmonton office location, WCB will be required.


Why do we need to name the resources?

AIMCo requires named resources on contracts in order to onboard, provide access to locations and systems, and to validate invoices.   


How will my resource know which policy documents pertain to them?

A member of the Procurement team will reach out prior to the start date with a link to the required documents and an acknowledgment form. This must be completed before they begin work with AIMCo.
