Vendor Management Program
The Vendor Management program is made up of three components; prequalification; environmental, health and safety; and performance management. The purpose of the program is to help departments streamline their quotation processes, reduce the risk of injuries by protecting the health and safety of vendor and City employees and reduce instances of poor performance to increase project quality. By introducing this program, vendors and the public can be assured the City is doing what it can to protect employees and public assets and will be supported throughout the duration of the program by the Financial Services Division.
