Procurement Opportunities & Awards

The aim of this section is to provide CNL supply chain with information about upcoming opportunities as well as those contracts recently awarded.

For companies visiting the vendor portal for the first time, CNL provides a summary of how to do business with CNL. This document, called Procurement Insights, can be viewed through this link 

CNL has three key missions:

For the 2017-18 fiscal year, the following are areas of focus for each of the missions. Competitive procurements to further those missions are as outlined in the Procurement Opportunities and Awards spreadsheet.

Mission 1: Environmental Remediation Management

CNL is accelerating decommissioning, environmental restoration and waste management projects to safely and effectively reduce Canada’s nuclear legacy liabilities and associated risks, based on sound waste management and environmental principles. To further that end, projects will be undertaken to: demolish and decommission several buildings at the Chalk River site to allow for new facilities to be built; advance the development of a Near Surface Disposal Facility at Chalk River to receive low-level waste streams; manage and treat liquid and legacy waste to reduce environmental impact; and maintain the Gentilly-1 and Douglas Point storage facilities.

Mission 2: Science and Technology

The CNL mission to advance Canada’s nuclear agenda, by supporting the government in its objectives, through research and commercial products will be furthered through the procurement of equipment and services to enable laboratories to operate safely, efficiently and with the largest scope possible.

Mission 3: Capital 

The development and transformation of the Chalk River Site to a campus-like facility will give rise to a number of capital projects to build new facilities; revitalize and modernize existing facilities; and enhance IT capabilities and infrastructure. New equipment will be procured to assist the Health Safety and Security program and Research and Development to achieve their goals.
