Policy number and title:
Financial Directive 350-3 – Contracting
Why was the policy changed?
The creation of FD 350-3 was as a result of a periodic review of CSC policies. FD 350-3 was designed to bring all contracting policies, guidelines and directives together under one document for ease of reference. It also includes updated information previously found in CD 240.
What has changed?
A new policy has been created and approved to address new issues and initiatives in contracting: accountability in procurement and training for procurement specialists.
Commissioner’s Directive 240 has been integrated into the new FD 350-3, and has been deleted.
The directive for Green Procurement will be published at a later date. For the interim, the Treasury Board Contracting Policy on Green Procurement is being provided.
How was it developed?
The policy owner, National Manager, Contracting and Materiel Services, developed the new policy in consultation with the Regional Finance Comptrollers, the Regional Managers, Contracting and Materiel Services, Legal Services, Personnel Security, and Strategic Policy.
All authorized purchasers of goods and services for CSC.
Who will be affected by the policy?
All Budget Managers.
Changes to manuals, guidelines, training materials, and processes are underway or completed in support of this policy.
