We partner with only respected organizations that provide additional value for both our Municipal Members and our Professional Members.
Description: The Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators is a national, non-profit association open to all Chief Administrative Officers/City Managers and any person employed in a senior management position that reports directly to the CAO. CAMA has a membership of over 600 City Managers, Chief Administrative Officers and Senior Appointed Officials from all parts of Canada.
Partnership: muniSERV has a full partnership with CAMA. Instead of developing their own resources and services for their municipal members, they direct their members back to muniSERV’s full suite of tools.
This partnership helps us both meet our strategic goal to find efficiencies with the delivery of services and resources by collaborating, not duplicating, to help build better municipalities together.
It also helps our professional members by directing more Canadian municipalities to muniSERV to view their profiles, read their articles and see their ads.
We also developed and partnered with CAMA to develop CAMA’s Members in Transition Toolkit. The resources set out in the toolkit are directed back to muniSERV’s special Transition/Career Services category in the Find a Consultant database, so that CAMA’s members in transition can be directly linked to our professional members who offer these types of services, which include employment lawyers, financial planners, career counsellors, executive search firms and more.

Description: bids&tenders is an eProcurement platform designed to help suppliers find opportunities and submit bids online. The system centralizes public and private sector opportunities in one convenient portal. Membership with bids&tenders allows suppliers to submit bids to an unlimited number of opportunities across the entire network.
Partnership: muniSERV is a member of the bids&tenders Affiliate Network. muniSERV entered into a partnership with bids&tenders in 2016 to support our “Post an RFP” feature. The benefit of this partnership is that when a municipality posts an RFP, Bid or Tender on muniSERV, it is automatically shared with bids&tenders’ thousands of vendors. Our municipal members report they are receiving more responses to their bid documents than ever before – and therefore, ultimately more competitive bids.
Our professional members enjoy the convenience of marketing their professional services to municipalities and finding contracts of interest to them, by joining both muniSERV and bids&tenders. Both memberships work together – your muniSERV membership helps you market directly to your municipal clients and get found, and your bids&tenders membership helps you find contracts and work.
