COVID-19 supplier attestation: procurement
Suppliers need confirm their vaccination status when renewing or bidding on future procurement contracts.
Use the Nova Scotia COVID-19 Supplier Attestation Form to confirm your COVID-19 vaccination status.
Although COVID-19 vaccination isn’t required, some high-risk government workplaces may still require proof of vaccination. Suppliers should contact their contract manager for more information.
All suppliers need to confirm their COVID-19 vaccination status when renewing or bidding on future procurement contracts. This helps make sure government has accurate data on vaccination status in case the epidemiology changes.
Government isn’t collecting any personal health information of a supplier’s individual employees.
A supplier is any person or company engaged to provide goods, services or construction to government. Suppliers are sometimes referred to as consultants, contractors, vendors or service providers. A supplier also includes all sub-contractors and people working for the prime supplier (like security services, cleaners, consultants, mail services, trainers, videographers and equipment technicians).
Government is committed to protecting information it collects on the vaccination status of suppliers. Government keeps vaccination status information only as long as necessary.
