City of St. John’s – Bid Bonds will only be accepted in Digital Bid Bond format

In an effort to ensure the City of St. John’s is receiving acceptable bids we are changing our tendering process to allow for the acceptance of Digital Bid Bonds. It is important to note that a scanned and uploaded copy of a paper bid bond is not a Digital Bid Bond.

Please be advised that as of September 1st 2018 the City will no longer accept Paper Bid Bonds (CCDC – Owner Standard Form) – as of that date Bid Bonds will only be accepted in Digital Bid Bond format.

Up to and including August 31st, 2018 the City will accept Bid Bonds in the following formats:

Paper Bid Bonds – CCDC – Owner Standard Form as outlined in the City’s tender documents.

OR

Digital Bid Bonds in an electronically verifiable/enforceable format. All instruction details for accessing authentication should be included with the up-loaded Digital Bid Bond. Bidders shall upload their Digital Bid Bond to the City’s bidding system in the appropriate field. For more information regarding Digital Bid Bonds bidders are encouraged to contact their surety company and can also refer to the e-bonding information on the Surety Association of Canada’s website.

Bonds shall be issued by reputable Bonding Companies, licensed to carry on business in Newfoundland and Labrador.

All bid bonds must be irrevocable and open for bid acceptance for at least ninety (90) days from the date of bid opening.

The submission of unacceptable bid documents negatively impacts both the City and the bidder. When you are submitting bids please be sure to read all documents carefully before you submit. If you have any questions during the submission period you can submit your questions through the City’s electronic bidding system as outlined in our documents.

You can access the City’s ebidding system through the City’s web page or at bids.stjohns.ca .
