Purchasing Agreements

French

Compute Canada and partner institutions are engaged in a large-scale multi-year technology refresh program. This includes multiple procurement actions, led by one or more of the national hosting sites. Companies interested in bidding should monitor the MERX system (www.merx.com), which is where all Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and other announcements are posted.

RFP actions planned, completed, or underway include the following. Note that this list may be outdated, and potential bidders must use MERX, or contact the cognizant institution’s procurement office, for authoritative information.

Compute Canada member institutions may be eligible to join purchasing agreements for the completed RFPs shown below. Interested institutions can contact the procurement office of the lead institution or cfi-awards@computecanada.ca for further information.
