Security/Bonding Requirements:

Security is not required on the majority of purchases made by the City. If security is required, the specific conditions contained in the bid invitation will indicate the kind and amount. When security is required, a bid will not be accepted without it. The principal types of security are as follows:

  • Bid Deposit: A Bid Bond or certified check, payable to the City of Grande Prairie in the amount specified in the bid invitation, enclosed in the bid package. The bid deposit is in the amount of 10% of the total Tender Price including GST @ 5% and will be forfeited to the City should the successful bidder fail to accept the award. Bid deposits are returned to unsuccessful bidders within 10 days after the award and acceptance by the successful bidder.
  • Performance and Labour and Materials Bond: A Performance Bond and Labour and Materials Bond, payable to the City of Grande Prairie, totalling the amount specified in the bid invitation, is required only from the successful bidder. Bonds are retained by the City until all items, equipment, and/or services specified in the contract or purchase order have been completed to the satisfaction of the City. A Consent of Surety indicating that Bonding will be provided if awarded the contract is required with your Tender submission. Bonds will be forfeited to the City should the successful bidder fail to comply with the terms and conditions as set forth in the specifications and award.
  • Insurance: Whenever a purchase order or contract requires the vendor to perform an installation, repair, or service on City property, it will be necessary for the vendor to provide, on a City form, an insurance certificate evidencing insurance coverages as may be required and naming the City as an additional insured.
  • Workers Compensation Coverage: Whenever a purchase order or contract requires the vendor to perform an installation, repair, or service on City property, it will be necessary for the vendor to provide evidence satisfactory to the City that an account has been opened with the Workers Compensation Board and all fees have been paid in compliance with the Board.
