City of Vancouver

An applicant requested records about City of Vancouver Bid Committee meetings. The Bid Committee makes decisions regarding the procurement of goods and services for the City. In response to the applicant’s request, the City identified reports that were prepared by City staff for the Bid Committee. It disclosed portions of these reports, but withheld some information under ss. 13, 16, 17 and 21 of FIPPA. The adjudicator determined that the City is authorized to refuse to disclose nearly all of the information withheld under s. 13 (policy advice or recommendations), but that it must disclose the remaining information.
