Supplier Performance Evaluation (SPE) Guideline
SUPPLIER PERFORMANCE EVALUATION (SPE) GUIDELINE
The purpose of the SPE Guideline is to provide an evaluative record, both positive and negative, of a proponent’s performance on High-Value and select Low-Value Tenders that have been awarded by Build Nova Scotia. It will be used consistently across all Build Nova Scotia Departments, based on Tender value, to assess performance and when considering a proponent’s eligibility for future awards.
SPEs are conducted by Build Nova Scotia staff with oversight from the Director, Operations & Procurement and Senior Management as may be appropriate. Effective April 1, 2022, all High Value Tenders (Good Tenders with a final value of $25,000 and above, Service Tenders with a final value of $50,000 and above, and Construction Tenders with a final value of $100,000 and above) will be subject to mandatory SPEs.
Low-Value Tenders are open to optional SPEs if identified in advance in Tender documentation.
