Register to Provide Services

How do I register?

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) operate the following online database systems: the Supplier Registration Information (SRI), ProServices and SELECT.

Supplier Registration Information (SRI)

In order to register in ProServices and SELECT, you must first have a Procurement Business Number (PBN), which you obtain by registering in SRI. The PBN is an important feature in SRI, and is based on your Canada Revenue Agency business number and uniquely identifies your business in our procurement and payment systems.

ProServices

Client departments and agencies use ProServices to search for potential suppliers and then use the competitive process for requirements under $80,400 (including all applicable taxes) not posted on the Tenders minisite to quickly select a qualified supplier.

SELECT

PWGSC contracting officers use SELECT to invite suppliers to bid, on a rotational basis, on real property consulting services valued below $80,400 (North American Free Trade Agreement threshold), and construction services valued below $100,000 (Agreement on Internal Trade threshold). If you are interested in these types of requirements, you must register with SELECT as they are not posted on the Tenders minisite, unless the requirement is over the dollar threshold detailed above.

Where do I go to register?

Once you have registered in the SRI, you can register in the other databases. Remember that these database systems use the PBN as their supplier identifier; therefore, ensure that you have your PBN within easy reach when ready to register.

The following table will help you to find the appropriate database and/or method of supply to promote your services.
