Public Sector buyers recognized the importance of managing and notifying potential suppliers in accordance to fairness and openness, and have therefore transformed their paper-based application forms to online versions. The registration form is the same form used by individual organizations to pre-qualify suppliers and incorporate them into their rosters and/or simply notifying them. Buyers can now easily find suppliers by commodity code(s) or company name(s), and invite them to bid.

3. Important information about the online vendor/bidder application forms

Before you start completing the application, print it, and gather the required information.

The Application form page Expires after 30 Minutes.

The page will expire:

What happens to the data after 30 minutes?
After 30 minutes of completing the application form, the data entered in the fields will be lost if you don't click "Save and Continue".
To prevent this from occurring, we suggest you refer the tips on completing the application form.


Print the application form page.
Some of the applications may require information that you may not have readily available to you, such as insurance or banking information. Print the application form!

Compile your information and be prepared!
Before you start filling in the form, get all of the required information ready.

Type your information first in MS Word or Word Perfect.
You can type your information in either one of those recommended formats, and copy and paste it into the applicable fields. This option will save you time!

It is very important that your application be as complete as possible.
It is equally important that you keep your information current. This means that you can update your information at anytime by logging into the site with your user ID and password, and modify each section. Each time you update, the public sector organization will receive email telling them of what you have done.

Carefully review the list of commodities that the public sector organization procure, and choose the ones that best represent the goods or services that you sell. Try to select a maximum of ten (10), to be sure you are not over-classifying yourself. The selected commodity codes with sub-classes will automatically be selected.

Why do I have to complete separate application forms for each public sector organization?

Public Sector Organizations are Unique


Does this mean that I have to re-type my information for each individual Vendor Application?

Your company is identified by your unique user ID and password. The information that was entered in the previous forms was transferred and is auto-populated in the related fields. You are required to type the information in the incomplete fields.

You must submit the forms individually, except in the case of the York Purchasing Co-operative. If you've submitted an application form to the City of Vaughan, it can be accessed by the participating members only.
