Government of the Northwest Territories Continues to Process Government Contracts Online

Media Statement

Yellowknife — April 30, 2020

Minister Katrina Nokleby issued the following media statement today on doing business with the Government of Northwest Territories (GNWT):

“The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) continues to find ways to manage the impact of COVID-19 on the Northwest Territories’ (NWT) economy. We know businesses—big and small—are concerned about how they are being impacted.

“With this in mind, the GNWT’s Procurement Shared Services (PSS) is continuing to post public procurements and receive submissions online through the GNWT Contract Event Opportunities web page, which includes capital infrastructure projects.

 “The Department of Infrastructure plays an important role in how our government responds to COVID-19. The department supports local and NWT businesses and resident labour in public procurement processes through the use of the GNWT Business Incentive Policy, the NWT Manufactured Product Policy, and community engagement criteria used in evaluating Requests for Proposals.

“During this challenging time, a public procurement process that supports NWT businesses, local and resident labour remains a priority for our government.

“The Department of Infrastructure is well equipped with experts who can answer your procurement and contract related questions, and I would urge you to reach out to them if you are wondering how to do business with the GNWT. Email Procurement_Questions@gov.nt.ca or call (867) 767-9044 Ext 32118.”
