Under the Approved Procurement Exemption category of legitimate objectives, a sole source is where AHS contracts with a vendor without having conducted a competitive process and none of the other Approved Procurement Exemption circumstances and criteria apply. AHS has developed guidelines for when contracts can be sole-sourced. Below are some of the considerations taken into account when assessing whether a contract should be sole-sourced.
All sole-sourced contracts are subject to an approval process to ensure that such contracts are adequately justified. Meeting one or more of these considerations does not guarantee the contract will be sole-sourced.
The contracts included in this listing are contracts managed through AHS’ Contracting, Procurement and Supply Management department.
AHS saw an increase in sole source purchases in January through to March 2020, in preparation for COVID related stockpiling, which has been essential to Alberta’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
