Attention Government of Canada suppliers and buyers: Public Services and Procurement Canada is introducing a Phased Bid Compliance Process

July 17, 2017 – Gatineau – Effective immediately, Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is implementing a new policy on the Phased Bid Compliance Process.

The new policy supports PSPC’s commitment to modernize its procurement processes and practices by providing suppliers with greater flexibility to demonstrate compliance with mandatory requirements included in its solicitations.

Overview of the process

The Phased Bid Compliance Process is a process that can be incorporated into solicitations involving either a request for proposal (RFP) or a request for standing offer (RFSO). It provides bidders or offerors with an opportunity, after the solicitation closing date, to correct a finding of non-compliance with respect to Eligible Mandatory Requirements.

The Phased Bid Compliance Process may be applied in RFPs or RFSOs where the total estimated value is $2,000,000 or greater and where one or more other specific factors are present.
