Here are the main reasons why you should complete an online vendor application for the Georgian Bay Area Public Purchasing Co-operative:

  • To receive an email notification when a competitive bid has been released relating to one of the commodities registered by your organization.
  • To provide GBAPPC Purchasing Departments with a current, accurate and updated list of potential suppliers/contractors including all contact information.
  • To share supplier contact information across all participating agencies within the GBAPPC.

The GBAPPC vendor application form has been created to make it easier to register with Biddingo.
