CSC National Procurement Plan Fiscal Year 2014-2015
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 2014-2015, 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 it 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:
- The list only includes planned procurement activities that are estimated at over $250K;
- The list only includes new procurement activities and excludes expenditures towards established procurements;
- All planned procurement activities on the list are subject to change or cancellation; and
- All details regarding the procurement activities on the list will ONLY be available once the solicitation is formally released.
Fair, Open and Transparent
In line with other departments that procure goods and services to meet corporate objectives, CSC strategically manages procurement spending, risks and efficiencies through an established departmental procurement governance structure. This structure is complemented by a framework to ensure that contracting and materiel management activities at CSC are conducted in a fair, open and transparent manner resulting in value for money and sound stewardship of public funds, while meeting broader government objectives such as encouraging aboriginal business development and green procurement.
CSC is committed to ensuring that competitive procurement is standard practice by seeking tender proposals on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS) or from a minimum of three (3) suppliers for procurements not subject to trade agreements.
Statistics on contracts issued by departments and agencies are publicly available as part of the Government of Canada's annual Purchasing Activity Report. This report is used to provide statistical analysis of the processes and tools through which government contracting is conducted.
Information on Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) standing offers and supply arrangements can be obtained through the Buyandsell.gc.ca website. This website is the central procurement resource for federal government buyers and industry suppliers.
For current CSC and other Federal Government Department issued open competitive solicitations, please refer to the GETS accessible through the PWGSC's Tenders website, the online system that advertises contracting opportunities to potential bidders.
The site provides valuable information for businesses that want to supply goods and services to the government and includes:
- A clear and simple breakdown of the various steps to doing business with the Government of Canada;
- A link to register in the Supplier Registration Information (SRI) system;
- Access to commodity codes;
- Information on promoting your business;
- Information on useful seminars on the procurement process; and
- Other useful links regarding Contract Security, Office of Small and Medium Enterprise, and Real Property Services.
