The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo’s Social Procurement initiative is progressing forward into policy and action. By expanding the traditional understanding of ‘best value’ in procurement, to include the generation of positive societal benefits, in conjunction with high quality and competitive bids, the Municipality is aiming to maximize community benefits and deliver improved socio-economical returns to the Region, within our existing spend.

On July 6, 2021, Council approved several motions specific to Indigenous Procurement and Social Procurement. The motions can be found in the minutes of the July 6th meeting.

We had been seeking your ideas for ways to advance the procurement process in a socially responsible way. We are compiled the information received through our stakeholder meetings and online engagement. The report back to council based on what we heard happened on Sept 14 2021 and the document can be found in the "Documents" section of this page. Next steps will be to return back to the public and stakeholders in Nov 2021 to refine the policy.
