Limited Tendering and Non-Application
The University of Toronto relies on competitive procurement (by invitation or open tendering) to allow suppliers in the marketplace a fair and transparent opportunity to supply the University with the goods and services (including construction and consulting services) needed for business purposes.
Procurement Policy Exemptions
There may be circumstances where neither invitational nor open competitive procurement can be used as the procurement method. A Procurement Policy Exemption may be permitted provided it meets the criteria in a Limited Tendering (including Sole or Single Source) Exception or Non-Application Provision of the CFTA, CETA, OQTCA or other regulations applicable to the University of Toronto as introduced from time to time. These provisions are defined and listed on the Exception or Non-Application tables (Table 1 and Table 2 respectively), and the applicability of the selected Exception(s) or Provision(s) must be justified with sufficient level of detail.
If a Limited Tendering Exception is used, the conditions and circumstances that justified its use must be publicly disclosed, along with the total value of the award if it is at or exceeds $100,000. This information will be centrally collected, posted and reported by Procurement Services on behalf of the University.
