Today the Government of Saskatchewan and businesses meet face-to-face in hopes of finding their perfect match at the 2014 Business Opportunity Expo hosted by the Ministry of Central Services.
The event, held at TCU Place in Saskatoon, offers a chance for business suppliers and Saskatchewan’s public sector to network, and for businesses to learn about government’s procurement needs and processes.
“The need for businesses to provide innovative product and service solutions continues to expand as the province grows,” Central Services Minister Jennifer Campeau said. “The Business Opportunity Expo welcomes suppliers to share their perspectives, and gain knowledge about government’s procurement opportunities.”
The Expo showcases government’s commitment to working with Saskatchewan businesses in a manner that is fair, open, competitive and transparent. The 27 tradeshow booths at the Expo represent a cross-section of government ministries, Crown corporations, municipalities, academic institutions, a school division and health region.
“Staying connected with each of the public sector organizations that we are privileged to work with is really important to us, and the Expo allows this to happen in one location and in one day,” WBM Office Systems Vice President Brett Bailey said. “The Expo is an invaluable opportunity for the business community to come together with the public sector and get high level feedback about specific needs as they are evolving, while also making suggestions that may contribute to innovation around the processes that our partnerships are built on.”
The Ministry of Central Services operates the newly redesigned SaskTenders website, where businesses can browse tender opportunities, or register for free to receive alerts. This website, www.sasktenders.ca, is the hub for all public sector tender opportunities and procurement information.
The 2014 Business Opportunity Expo is part of Manufacturing Week.
