MERX will supply a world-class solution which includes Tendering and Electronic Bidding options that will streamline the provincial procurement process. The solution provided also enables users from other public bodies to input bidding opportunities and award information for reporting purposes.

The system will be implemented across the province at the end of November and will resemble the platform MERX developed for the Province of Manitoba.
