System for Accountability and Management

  • New Modules

  • The Strategic Sourcing and Supplier Contract Management modules

    • submitted within the 2011-2012 Capital Plan

    • are modules that the GNWT currently owns and licences.

    • not included within the revised scope of the project as they would have added complexity to the project and additional change that would be faced by the end users.

    • The GNWT and NWTHC are now more at ease with the new environment and the SAM team is ready to deploy more functionality.

System for Accountability and Management

  • The drivers for the Strategic Sourcing and Supplier Contract Management:

    • Firstly this project is consistent with the Department of Finance’s strategic direction

    • The new modules support the Procurement Shared Services initiative. .

    • The new modules will assist the GNWT in addressing concerns expressed by the Auditor General. Consistent and complete paperwork, as well clearly tracked deliverables and payment schedules, including any approvals is one of the features of these two modules.

    • It supports the vision behind a system such as SAM, an enterprise resource system, not simply a financial system.

    • The Contract Registry maintained by The Department of Industry, Tourism and Investment may be effected.

    • The GNWT currently does not have the ability to support e-procurement. These modules are the pre-requisites to moving to that technology.


System for accountability and management15

System for Accountability and Management

  • Strategic Sourcing module is the next step in procurement after a requisition is for a desired product or service is created and can be implemented selectively to support building out to e-procurement. The requisition need not be the current fiscal year, it can be for a point in the future. This system takes you through the process of looking for a vendor and awarding a contract, as well as negotiating the work or product that you are purchasing.

  • The Supplier Contract Module feeds from the Strategic Sourcing module, which in turn will feed the creation of a purchase order and commitment in the SAM system. Once a vendor is identified and the work or product has been negotiated this module will support getting the contract in place and monitoring vendor progress and deliverables.
