    Procurement Principles

    Best Value

    Procurements will be assessed on "best value" not simply "best price." Three attributes are typically considered when assessing best value: the advancement of EfficiencyOne's objectives; non-cost factors (e.g. quality, fitness for purpose, technical performance, reliability, risk exposures, compatibility with existing systems/processes); real-cost factors, including transaction costs and whole-of-life costs.

    Transparency and Openness

    Procurement will follow a transparent process that includes informing vendors of evaluation criteria within the solicitation documents that are issued for the procurement. All vendors will be treated with fairness and respect and EfficiencyOne will foster a partnering culture with its vendor community. This includes openness in conducting business, willingness to provide vendors with opportunity to ask questions & receive answers, and providing periodic feedback to vendors on their performance.

    Sustainable Procurement

    EfficiencyOne will consider sustainability criteria in all procurement decisions by integrating the following criteria in the procurement process where practical: environmental criteria (e.g. Green House Gas Reduction, Waste Reduction, Toxic Use Reduction); economic criteria (e.g. Life Cycle Cost, Fiscal Responsibility, Support for the Local Economy); social criteria (e.g. Employee Health and Safety, Inclusiveness and Fair Wage, Health Promotion).

    Support for the Local Economy

    To help establish Nova Scotia as a leading jurisdiction in energy efficiency, EfficiencyOne will, where practical, consider local economic benefit and the potential to build local capabilities in all procurement decisions. This means, procuring goods produced from or services provided by companies owned and/or managed in Nova Scotia whenever possible and/or feasible. Alternatively, Efficiency One will encourage non-Nova-Scotia-based suppliers to involve local organizations in projects to make use of local expertise and talent.

    Support for Energy Efficiency

    To help establish Nova Scotia as a leading jurisdiction in energy efficiency, EfficiencyOne will where practical, consider the potential to further support energy efficiency behaviors and industries in all procurement decisions. This means procuring goods produced from or services provided by companies that have imbedded energy efficiency business practices, behaviors, and initiatives into their organizational structure, whenever it is possible and/or feasible.

    Cultural Alignment

    To the best of its ability EfficiencyOne will consider vendors' cultural alignment with its own (e.g. Vision, Mission & Values, customer care charter, safety).
