procurement strategy for aboriginal business psab
Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB)

The PSAB is a Treasury Board policy instrument administered by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC)

  • Departments with procurement budgets over $1M must develop multiyear performance objectives (targets) for contracting with Aboriginal businesses.

PVR proposes a target of $24.7M for 2013/14 (non-telecom) approx 3.8% of SSC spend

  • Target is based on the percentage of aboriginal population in Canada
  • Approach was validated with AANDC and other government organizations

How does the PSAB work in SSC

  • SSC Business Lines identify potential procurements with PVR where capacity in the aboriginal vendor community exists
  • PVR reports contracts with aboriginal suppliers to AANDC annually and via MAF exercise
integrity framework
Integrity Framework
  • The Government Contracts Regulations Section 18. (1) (c) requires that all potential suppliers declare that they have not been convicted of an offence, other than an offence for which a pardon has been granted, under section 121, 124 or 418 of the Criminal Code
  • Integrity Framework was established by PWGSC to conduct criminal background checks on potential suppliers and incorporate Code of Conduct provisions in all procurement solicitation documents
  • Before contract award, procurement officers obtain a written confirmation from the Special Investigations Directorate/PWGSC that the proposed contractor or individuals who are on the Board of Directors are not subject to relevant criminal convictions or acts
  • Memorandum of Understanding between SSC and PWGSC Departmental Oversight Branch for integrity verification services
  • Subject to all procurements over $25K
former public servants
Former Public Servants
  • TB Contracting Policy Notice 2012-2: Departments are to identify, in their financial management systems, all service contracts issued to former public servants in receipt of a PSSA pension
  • Procurement officers will incorporate a standard clause requiring bidders to provide information on whether the bidder is a former public servant in receipt of a pension or a lump sum payment
  • Procurement operations will identify and report on contracts in SSC financial system
  • Quarterly reports are required to MINO on all contracts with former public servants
  • All contracts with former public servants must be proactively disclosed
governance and procurement planning
Governance and Procurement Planning
  • Formalization of the Procurement Review Board and the processes, membership and evaluation framework it uses
  • Mandatory procurement planning in SSC on an annual basis that is aligned to:
    • Investment Plan
    • Departmental Report on Plans and Priorities
    • Integrated Business Plan
    • Transformation initiatives
    • Outreach to vendor and OGD community
guidance on contracting with small and medium sized enterprises
Guidance on Contracting with Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

Key issues to address are:

  • Overview of the role of SMEs in the provision of goods and services related to IT
  • Flexibility of the national security invocation and SMEs
  • The process by which procurements may be planned/administered to include special provisions for the inclusion of SMEs
  • Terms and conditions in contracts related to SMEs
  • Guidance on company capability requirements and the impact on SMEs
engagement with vendor community key questions
Engagement with Vendor Community – Key Questions
  • What are the principles that SSC should include in a SME guidance?
  • What is the appropriate definition of an SME?
  • How do you want to be engaged in the development of guidance?
  • What is the appropriate reporting framework?
  • Would you be willing to self-identify (on a mandatory basis) your “SME Status”?
    • Would this include an SME certification?
  • What is an appropriate timeframe for development, release and application of a strategy?
