Report on Single Source Contracts

In general, the Airport Authority’s procurement of goods and services will be awarded following a competitive process. Exceptions to this policy may be made in the circumstances described in the list below. The persons with the appropriate signing authority will state in writing upon what grounds the exception is being made.

Reasons for exceptions:

  1. The goods or services are of a proprietary nature or there is only one qualified supplier;
  2. The urgency of a safety, security or critical operating need so requires;
  3. In compliance with a product or equipment standardization program;
  4. When the supplier has satisfactorily performed previous related services that provided a cost saving to the Airport Authority;
  5. The essential partnership of the transaction exists between a major third party (for example, airlines, hotels, cruise ship lines) and the supplier;
  6. The value of the product or service does not warrant the cost and time required to invite competitive submissions; and
  7. The supplier has been awarded a contract for a similar product or service by the Airport Authority as the result of a competitive process within the previous five years.

In keeping with our policy of being transparent, we publish the list of goods and services costing more than $133,126 ($100,000 in 2000 dollars) that were not awarded on the basis of a competitive process during 2016. The table below reports $18,031,817 in single source contracts, representing 7.0 per cent of the total goods and services purchased in 2016.
