The Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) provides for fully open, non-discriminatory tendering by the federal, provincial and territorial governments. Annex 502.4 sets out the procurement provisions for municipalities, municipal organizations, school boards and publicly funded academic, health and social service entities (MASH). The annex covers the purchase of goods and services over $100,000 and of construction over $250,000. There are two obligations under the Annex: non-discrimination, and transparency. Non-discrimination means the MASH buyers of goods, services and construction must treat suppliers from another province the same as they treat local suppliers. Transparency means that buyers must have open tendering practices. New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) between BC, Alberta, and Saskatchewan came into effect April 1, 2009 for school boards. NWPTA builds on the AIT, however procurement thresholds are lower. Goods and Services $75,000. and Construction over $200,000. For more information on Investment, please contact Financial Services and for Labor Mobility, please contact Human Resources. If there are any questions regarding procurement practices related to AIT or NWPTA, please contact Greg Tetz, Manager, Purchasing Services at 403-817-7492.
