The Township of South-West Oxford operates on the basis that competitive markets will provide taxpayers with the best products and services available to meet our needs. When Township projects need to be completed by outside companies, the Township of South-West Oxford is committed to selecting suppliers that offer the best quality and value for the services they are providing.
We do not discriminate in favour of any particular type of supplier. When examining prices, quotes and tenders, consideration is given to several factors, including price, quality, performance, services offered and delivery.
Section 270 of the Municipal Act mandates that a municipality must adopt and maintain policies with respect to its procurement of goods and services. The Township's procurement procedures are determined by the Purchasing By-Law (No.56-2015) which has been approved by Township Council and is mandatory for all Township Departments.
