Non-Competitive Procurement

The procurement of goods, services, construction and renovation work at the University of Toronto is governed by its Procurement Policy, which includes the Code of Ethics and Approval Authority Schedule. It is applicable to all funding sources including operating, research, capital, ancillary and funds held in trust. To achieve and demonstrate value for money, the competitive procurement process should be used when acquiring goods, services and construction.

Non-competitive procurement may only be used in circumstances outlined in the exemption, exception or non-application clauses of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) or other legislation as introduced from time to time.
