SGI was created in 1945 and has evolved into two distinct operations. The Saskatchewan Auto Fund is the province's compulsory auto insurance program, operating the driver's licensing and vehicle registration system. The Auto Fund is financially self-sustaining, operating on a break-even basis over time. It does not receive money from, nor pay dividends to, the government. SGI CANADA is fully competitive, selling property and casualty insurance products such as home, farm, business and extension auto. SGI CANADA currently operates in Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. SGI employs over 1,600 people and works with a network of almost 300 independent insurance brokers and about 450 motor licence issuers in Saskatchewan, as well as numerous brokers outside the province. The corporation operates 20 claims centres in 13 Saskatchewan communities. It has a branch office in Winnipeg. It also operates Coachman Insurance Company, based in Toronto, and is a major partner in the Insurance Company of Prince Edward Island, operating out of Charlottetown and also doing business in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. SGI CANADA also began selling insurance products in Alberta in June 2006.

Supplying goods or services to SGI

Have you ever considered registering your business as an SGI supplier?
In an effort to continue forging relationships with communities across Saskatchewan, SGI provides opportunities to compete on goods and services contracts.

What types of goods and services do we buy?

SGI purchases IT equipment and services, furniture and supplies, forms, stationery, building and janitorial supplies, promotional advertising items and garage equipment. We also require building and construction services, consulting services, repair and maintenance of facilities and equipment, and cleaning services.

How do you register your business?

SGI maintains a database of suppliers who wish to bid on specific goods or services.
In order to be considered for a goods and services contract, you should register your business with SGI.
Please note that if you have previously registered your business through Saskatchewan Property Management you are not automatically registered with SGI or any of the province's other Crown corporations.
To register, call or e-mail us for a Vendor Registration form. Upon receiving the completed form (and any catalogues or additional information you wish to provide), SGI will add your business to our list for future reference. You may update your listing at any time

Purchasing procedures

For purchases of a dollar value under $10,000, quotations are requested. Formal tenders or Requests for Proposals are issued when the purchase is over $10,000.

Tender policy guidelines

SGI takes a number of factors into consideration when tendering goods and services contracts:
Tenders for specific goods and/or services contracts are issued to vendors who have registered their business with SGI Corporate Purchasing and who are known to be a qualified vendor.
Replies are directed to Corporate Purchasing and are held until the public opening. Vendors who have submitted a bid may attend the formal opening or be advised, upon request, of the results immediately following the tender opening.
Where quality, service and delivery are substantially the same and where prices remain competitive, Saskatchewan vendors shall be used.

Requests for Proposals policy guidelines

SGI handles Requests for Proposals in the same manner as tenders, but they are based on vendors proposing a solution for a particular requirement. Proposals are evaluated based on factors such as quality of solutions, price, experience and Saskatchewan content.
Although Requests for Proposals must be directed to Corporate Purchasing, they are not subject to a public opening.

Purchasing guidelines

SGI's purchasing guidelines are straightforward. 1) Suppliers will have fair and open access to opportunities. 2) Competitive processes will be used when acquiring goods and services. 3) Decisions will consider best value.
