Correctional Service Canada National Procurement Plan Fiscal Year 2017-2018

PDF

Introduction

The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is the federal government agency responsible for administering offender sentences of a term of two years or more, as imposed by the courts. CSC is responsible for managing institutions of various security levels and supervising offenders under conditional release in the community.

The objective of this CSC National Procurement Plan is to provide industry and the public information regarding CSC’s anticipated contracting activities for fiscal year 2017-2018, including a list of planned major procurement requirements.

CSC Procurement Planning

CSC produces a National Procurement Plan, as part of its business planning cycle and investment planning activities, to identify projected procurement activities and provide strategic information on the purchases the department makes to fulfill its mandate and meet operational requirements.

Through improved procurement planning, CSC has streamlined its procurement processes and is better able to plan its purchases, while at the same time respecting existing policies, regulations and trade agreements.

CSC's Projected Major Procurement Activities

CSC's procurement plan identifies projected major procurement activities (see Table 1). In adherence with the principles of access and transparency, the list aims to provide potential suppliers with a view of CSC's planned procurement activities in order for them to be prepared to respond to the demand.

Important points on the list of projected major procurement activities include:

Fair, Open and Transparent

CSC is committed to ensuring that competitive procurement is standard practice by seeking tender proposals on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS) or through limited tendering for procurements not subject to trade agreements.

CSC Procurement Activity

CSC is relatively consistent in the type of goods and services it procures to meet operational needs and legislation requirements. The following list represents the major commodity areas for CSC contracting:
