PRINCE GEORGE, BC: The City of Prince George has been singled out for special commendation by the BC Construction Association (BCCA) for its engagement practices with industry. The City was among BCCA’s picks for the Best of Public Procurement 2022 – Owner of Choice Awards. BCCA notes that each of the winners consistently sets a positive example to other public owners when procuring construction services.
“Public entities whose contract opportunities are distinguished by well-structured procurement processes and project outcomes can achieve a reputation as owners of choice. This directly translates to demonstrable value for taxpayer dollars and aligns with public sector obligations to trade agreements and for fair, open, and transparent procurement practices,” states a BCCA media release published earlier today.
Scott Bone, Chief Executive Officer, Northern Regional Construction Association, will be at Council on Monday to present the award (pictured) to staff.
