This Request for Proposal is a direct result of funding awarded to the Municipality of Kincardine under Intake 2 of the Municipal Modernization Funding program (Review Stream), with the goal of finding efficiencies and lowering costs in the longer term. As a result, the Proponent must comply with all reporting requirements and deadlines imposed under Municipal Modernization Funding program.
The Municipality of Kincardine’s current purchasing and procurement process is decentralized and antiquated and would significantly benefit from improvement from both a policy perspective, as well as from digital modernization. Our current Purchasing and Procurement Policy was adopted in 2004 and has not been reviewed or updated since 2013. With the ongoing pandemic there has been a need to shift to a digital process, resulting in challenges both internally and externally.
