Joseph Brant Hospital moves to online procurement service!
The Materials Management team at Joseph Brant Hospital is pleased to announce that we are streamlining our procurement services to allow for a fully-integrated and online e-procurement solution that will allow vendors to view, register and submit proposals entirely online in one quick, easy and convenient location.
Welcome to JBH Purchasing. Our dedicated team of professionals provide supply chain services, expertise and support to internal customers within JBH as well as our vendor community.
We use leading healthcare supply chain practices to procure quality goods and services for our hospital and patients and achieve best value for your tax dollars.
Using standardized processes that are fair, open and transparent, we select qualified and responsible suppliers and manage supplier performance responsibly and effectively.
Our procurement model leverages our Group Purchasing and Shared Services Partners where opportunities exist.
Some goods and services are procured independently where the Purchasing department issues tenders for Direct Purchases.

Competitive tenders for goods and services valued at $100,000 or more are posted on Merx, the electronic tendering system used by the hospital. JBH may elect to post tenders publically for values less than $100,000 on a direct basis.
Timeline for posting Competitive Procurements
JBH provides a minimum response time of 15 calendar days for procurement of goods and services valued at $100,000 or more. Often additional response time is offered, particularly for procurements of high complexity, risk, and/or dollar value.
Health and Safety
Suppliers and contractors who provide labour and installation services to the Hospital require proof of Workplace Safety Insurance (WSIB) and a Certificate of Insurance that reflects the minimum level of insurance identified in the tender. Additional health and safety and/or infection control requirements may be needed dependent upon the nature of the services provided.
