Updated sole-source service contracts now online
The Government of Alberta’s online database has been updated with service contracts awarded outside a formal competition process during the last fiscal quarter.
The Sole Source Service Contract Database has been updated with an additional 219 contracts with start dates on or before March 31, 2017. Of those contracts, 81 are for either Community and Social Services or Children’s Services. Of these, 78 provide direct social supports and three support government business. The total value of all 219 contracts is approximately $38.6 million.
The online database will continue to be updated on a quarterly basis, in support of procurement accountability across the Government of Alberta.
“Albertans expect access to important information about how their government awards contracts. Quarterly updates to this database ensure a high level of public responsibility and transparency. We remain committed to making this information openly available to everyone.”
The list has been posted according to open-data principles and is presented in a user-friendly format that enables a sort-and-filter capability for most fields. The entire database can also be downloaded into a spreadsheet, accommodating further analysis.
