Doing Business with Shared Health

Procurement of all capital equipment and equipment related services and consumables as well as all corporate, multi-discipline and ancillary requirements.

We utilize the United Nations recommended UN Model Procurement Law in the form of Non-Binding Negotiated (NBN) competitive bid documents. The NBN format is revocable and non-binding and is governed under the General Law of Contracts rather than Canadian Competitive Bid Law.

Shared Health, as a MASH sector entity, adheres to the requirements under the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) and the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). Competitive bids are posted to our tender service partner: Biddingo at

Capital Equipment is considered to be items costing a minimum of $2,000 and associated with Laboratory or Diagnostic Imaging functions.

All capital equipment purchasing and leasing is facilitated through Shared Health Procurement.

The benefits of this process includes economies of scale, workflow planning and management, adherence to governmental purchasing regulations and ensuring appropriate use of funds, as well as technical compliance with Provincial standards.
