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 213 contracts with start dates on or before Dec. 31, 2017. Of these, 91 are from Children’s Services/Community and Social Services, allocated in the following manner: 84 provide direct social supports and seven support government business. The total value of all 213 contracts is about $71.5 million.
The online database will continue to be updated on a quarterly basis in support of procurement accountability across the Government of Alberta.
“Our government is committed fair and transparent contracting processes. And we are following through with these quarterly updates, because Albertans deserve to know where these dollars are going and how they are being spent.”
~Stephanie McLean, Minister of Service Alberta
