Once you have registered in the Supplier Registration Information (SRI), you can register in the other databases. Remember that these database systems use the Procurement Business Number (PBN) as their supplier identifier; therefore, ensure that you have your PBN within easy reach when ready to register.
Your Supplier Registration Information
The SRI system is a database of registered companies interested in selling to the federal government.
You need to register in SRI to:
- Obtain your PBN which is a mandatory requirement to do business with the federal government;
- Register in other Public Works and Government Services Canada registration databases such as, SELECT, ProServices and the Translation Bureau.
Additional information may be required to register in other systems, depending on the requirements of the purchasing organization, and whether there is a requirement to pre-qualify businesses before their registration is considered complete.
