Current issue date

The most recent Blue Book was published on June 25, 2021, for the 12 months ended March 31, 2021.

The Government of Alberta implemented a new Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP) starting July 1, 2020. As of December 1, 2020, all the ministries have transitioned to the new system. As a result, the Blue Book Supplies and Services reports produced in 1GX for the period July 2020 to March 2021 are separate from the reports generated from the previous financial system.

Overview

The Blue Book shows who is doing business with government and selected payments that have been made for supplies or services purchased by departments from the General Revenue Fund.

The items are listed by payee, with a reference to the department or office that made the payment.

This information is updated each quarter on a cumulative basis. The final reports are posted for the fiscal year (April 1 to March 31).
