  • Canadian Government Opportunities -- MERX

    Business Information & Development Services, Inc. (BIDS) first began providing our clients with Canadian procurment information way back in 1991 when Supply and Services Canada operated the Procurement Opportunities Board (POB)

    On Monday, June 1st, 1992, Supply and Services Canada replaced the Procurement Opportunities Board (POB) with the Open Bidding Service (OBS) and BIDS was there... establishing an account for the purpose of:

    1. Accessing the database in order to provide our BIDSearchsmelectronic bid-matching service to our clients; and

    2. Obtaining bid documents on our clients behalf, freeing them from the capital expense of maintaining pre-paid accounts of their own.

    And there were more changes to come...

    On October 27th 1997 the Open Bidding service was replaced by MERX -- Canada's Electronic Tendering Service.

    MERX gives us access to thousands of procurement opportunities from the federal, provincial, municipal governments, as well as hundreds of universities, hospitals and school boards across Canada.

    With over 1500 open procurement opportunities on any given day. MERX is the largest centralized electronic tendering service in Canada and the only source of federal government opportunities.
