How to sign up for an account

The TMS is a free site and you do not have to register to visit. By registering, you are able to access the tender documents posted as well as receive notifications about tenders that may be of interest to you.

It allows businesses to access public tender documents and information, receive automated email notifications, and view the Government of Yukon Tender Forecast.

How does Yukon government decide which opportunities get posted to the TMS?

We post opportunities on TMS when the value of procurement exceeds contracting thresholds for public tendering as outlined in the Contracting and Procurement Directive:

Goods - When the total value of goods is over $25,000 YG must generally post the opportunity on TMS. If the total value is less than $25,000, YG may invite bids from suppliers.

Services and Construction - When the total value of services or construction is greater than $75,000, procurement authorities must generally post the opportunity on TMS; however, depending on the project procurement authorities may go to public tender for projects under $75,000.


How do I find out about opportunities not posted on the TMS?

For goods and services valued below the minimum thresholds identified above, competitive bids may be sought from at least three suppliers.

Yukon government departments find out about suppliers in a variety of ways: by checking listings and directories, consulting with colleagues, looking at past purchases, researching websites, reviewing advertisements, meeting directly with suppliers and using YG’s Supplier Directory. Ensure that your information is available to the departments.

The Supplier Directory lists contractors, suppliers of goods and services and consultants who want to do business with the Government of Yukon. This is an open Supplier Directory. Information is as provided by the contractor with no restrictions.


Why isn't e-bidding (electronic bidding) included in the system?

E-procurement requires further development in Canada. As other Canadian jurisdictions, we will observe national trends and determine if and when this feature can be adopted in Yukon.


Is my information safe?

Yes, TMS is a secure website using HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure). The main purpose of HTTPS is to create a secure channel over any given network. HTTPS is widely used in the industry and ensures reasonable protection from hackers. Your information will only be used by the Procurement Support Centre for tendering purposes.


What if I cannot or do not want to create an account?

It is not mandatory for businesses to use TMS, but the benefits of the system cannot be accessed without becoming a registered user (creating an account). The Procurement Support Centre will continue to offer the same store front service
