Request for Proposals

Durham Purchasing Co-operative

The Municipality of Clarington is a member of the Durham Purchasing Co-operative. The Co-operative consists of various public sector organizations in Durham Region and was formed to call tenders on a collective basis. Many agencies use the same goods and services and, therefore consolidating requirements and conducting a single tender can save time and effort.
