Government of Canada suppliers and buyers: improve your know-how when it comes to contracts containing security requirements

August 18, 2017 – Gatineau - Public Services and Procurement Canada’s Contract Security Program web pages are designed to help both government suppliers and buyers better understand the process for bidding and working on government contracts containing security requirements. They explain the steps to follow and highlight the key timelines to respect in order to successfully navigate the security screening process from start to finish.

For suppliers

The site offers useful information to help suppliers through the security screening process and comply with security requirements, including:

Coming spring 2018: The Program is currently developing an E-learning kit for company security officers. It will contain a series of free, interactive and scenario-based learning modules that will cover the following topics:

  • government of Canada security requirements to work on sensitive contracts
  • how to obtain security screenings for their organization and personnel
  • how to comply with security requirements through the Contract Security Program

For buyers

Government buyers are also invited to visit the Contract Security Program web pages to refresh their knowledge, register for training sessions or to keep up with the latest news and updates. With greater awareness of the Contract Security Program requirements, government buyers will find themselves better equipped to identify, navigate and manage government contract security requirements.

Coming fall 2017: The Program is currently developing a Procurement Toolbox for procurement specialists. It will feature tools, checklists and roadmaps related to procurement-specific processes involving contract security requirements. Stay tuned for more information.
