Procurement Process

Throughout project construction, a range of business opportunities were available as a direct supplier to Nalcor Energy, or as a subcontractor or supplier to the project’s primary contractors. The procurement process has been ongoing prior to project sanction in 2012. Nalcor’s procurement activity for the project is substantially complete. Please visit Awarded Contracts in the Procurement Section of our website for a list of contracts awarded to date. 

Businesses interested in supplying works, goods and services to the project are encouraged to regularly monitor the forecasted, active and awarded contract packages on this website to identify potential opportunities matching their areas of expertise. Full contact information for all approved bidders for active contract packages are also available.

Unless otherwise noted, the procurement process for primary contract opportunities with the project will be managed as follows:

  1. Upcoming contract packages and scopes of work are identified in the procurement forecast, available by selecting the Procurement Forecast link on this website.
  2. Expressions of Interest (EOI) and Bidder selection documents for contract packages are posted online in the Bidder Selection and RFP section of this website.
  3. Evaluation and selection of bidders.
  4. Requests for Proposals (RFP) are issued to bidders selected through the Bidder Selection phase. The bidders list is then available online through the corresponding contract package.
  5. Evaluation of proposals received through the RFP process.
  6. Contact information for the successful contractor is available in the Awarded Contracts section of this website.

Subcontract Opportunities
The project’s Supply Chain Team manages the administration of contract packages for major project components of the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric generating facility, Labrador-Island Link and transmission assets in Labrador, and the Strait of Belle Isle marine cable crossing.

In addition to these major contracts, the project will generate significant subcontract opportunities for goods and services that will be required throughout construction. Subcontract opportunities will be managed by primary contractors and suppliers with the project. Businesses can take advantage of subcontract opportunities by:

  • Contacting bidders and primary contractors/suppliers directly. Contact information for approved bidders and primary contractors/suppliers with the project is available in both the Bidder Selection and Request for Proposals section and the Awarded Contracts section of this website.
  • Regularly monitoring forecasted, active and awarded packages to identify areas for potential subcontract opportunities matching their area of expertise. All procurement information and scopes of work for contract packages are available by navigating the links on the left.

Our Team
In December 2010, following a competitive selection process, Nalcor Energy engaged SNC-Lavalin Inc. as the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) consultant for the development of the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric generating facility and the Labrador-Island Link. Procurement opportunities with the project are managed by an integrated Supply Chain team with representatives from Nalcor and SNC-Lavalin.

Nalcor Energy is directly managing the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the Strait of Belle Isle Cable Crossing.
