Procurement, Expense & Perquisites Policies

In 2010, the Ontario Government issued the Broader Public Sector (BPS) Procurement, Expenses and Perquisites Directives. BPS organizations are publicly funded organizations that receive operational funding from the Ontario Government. The Children's Aid Society of Oxford County is a BPS organization.

The purpose of the Procurement Directive is:

  • To ensure that publicly funded goods and services, including construction, consulting services and information technology are acquired by BPS organizations through a process that is open, fair, and transparent;
  • To outline responsibilities of BPS organizations throughout each stage of the procurement process; and
  • To ensure that procurement processes are managed consistently throughout the BPS.
