Find answers to your questions about the Supplier Space.

What is the Supplier Space?

The Supplier Space is the new portal for companies wishing to do business with Hydro-Québec. The main tool for responding to a tender call, the Supplier Space offers new features such as signing up for RFP notices, updating your file, managing your contacts, submitting documents directly in the portal and sharing information with the person in charge of the tender call via the integrated mailbox.

Why the change?

As part of the strategic transition that Hydro-Québec has undertaken in recent years, the company is modernizing its procurement practices. The Supplier Space helps optimize and standardize the processes.

Will the Supplier Space change the bidding process?

Yes. The Supplier Space will change how suppliers bid given that everything will now be in one place. Suppliers will be able to consult RFPs, bid online and submit the required documents directly in the portal.

Can I already bid using the Supplier Space?

Yes and no. It depends on the tender call.

All tender calls are gradually being put on the Supplier Space. During the transition period, consult both lists on the Current tender calls web page [in French only].

> If the tender call is posted on list 1, simply respond the way you always have.

> If the tender call is posted on list 2, you must sign in to your Supplier Space and submit your bid.

Remember! These lists complement one another. A call appears either in one list or the other, but not both. That’s why it’s important to consult both lists to make sure you don’t miss out on a business opportunity.

How can I access the Supplier Space?

To access your company’s Supplier Space, click on Log in. If this is the first time you are logging in and if you want to create a Supplier Space, follow our three steps.

Can a company that is not a Hydro-Québec supplier create a Supplier Space?

Of course! By creating a Supplier Space, your company will be indicating that it would like to be a Hydro-Québec supplier. You can also sign your company up to receive RFP notices in a particular area and never miss a business opportunity! To create your company’s Supplier Space, follow our three steps.

How can I find out if my company already has a Supplier Space?

First try to find out if that step was already taken by someone in your company. If you are not sure, submit a request to create a Supplier Space. If an account was already created, the system will let you know or the Supplier Space administrator will be informed that you would like to collaborate.

Can several people in my company be involved in the Supplier Space?

Supplier Space contacts can have an administrator or a collaborator profile. The types of access for each are outlined below:

Action Administrator profile Collaborator profile
Self-registration Yes Yes
Consulting the Supplier Record Yes Yes
Creating a Supplier Record modification request Yes No
Adding documents to the Supplier Record Yes Yes
Adding users with the administrator or collaborator profile to the Supplier Record Yes No
Deleting contacts with the administrator or collaborator profile from the Supplier Record Yes* No
Paying the subscription fee Yes No
Signing up for RFP notices RFPs Yes Yes
Bidding Yes Yes

* An administrator cannot delete their own contact from the Supplier Record.

How can I modify my company’s Supplier Space administrator?

The best way is to have the current Supplier Space administrator change or add an administrator. This can be done using the Request to change Supplier Space administrator [Temporarily in French only]. If the administrator is not available (no longer works at the company, is on sick leave, etc.), the change or addition can still be made by providing a proof of identity.

How long will it take to access my Supplier Space?

If you are already a Hydro-Québec supplier and you have your supplier number and your NEQ handy, the process is very quick. For new suppliers, it can take up to three business days to perform all of the validations.

Are there still fees for bidding on open calls for tenders?

Yes, but the $50 fee charged for each tender call has been replaced by an annual subscription fee of $75.

When you sign up, you will have unlimited access to documents pertaining to open calls for tenders and be able to submit a bid during the subsequent 12-month period.

Your company must sign up for an annual subscription if it wishes to participate in an open call for tenders.

To learn more about the subscription procedure, information document regarding the payment of submission fees (annual subscription)see our information document [PDF 134 Ko].

Can I use the Supplier Space to send my invoices?

The invoicing system has not changed. If you need information about a payment or an unpaid invoice or if have any questions, consult the Invoicing and payment page.
