ALTERNATIVE APPROACH

P3 Procurement Process

SaskBuilds is committed to leading an open, fair and transparent procurement process.

SaskBuilds will follow national best practice by publicly releasing P3 project documents including: reports from the expert independent Fairness Advisors, the final project agreement with the private partner (with commercially confidential information removed), and a value for money report that summarizes the results of the competitive procurement process once procurement is complete.

The P3 procurement process will include two distinct stages: the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) stage and the Request for Proposal (RFP) and financial close stage.

The RFQ stage is in place to qualify bidders and prepare a shortlist to compete in the RFP stage. At the RFP stage, a preferred proponent team will be selected based on the best bid.
