Attention! We’ve Moved! The Supply Manual has moved to the CanadaBuys website. Check out the new landing page for the Supply Manual.

Attention! As part of the Acquisitions Program’s transformation agenda, PSPC is planning to archive and migrate the SACC manual to the CanadaBuys website. The SACC manual will continue to be available on the BuyandSell website to ensure continuity of service during this transition period. At this time, an initial version of the archived version of the SACC has been posted on CanadaBuys. We encourage you to go visit the site and get comfortable with the new format of the SACC at the following:

Archived - Standard Acquisition Clauses and Conditions Manual | CanadaBuys

We appreciate your continued feedback and cooperation during this transition.

Attention! More information for suppliers. Read the news item with updates on the SACC and Contract Modernization Initiative.

Policy Notifications (PN) are documents that communicate changes, revisions, or updates to procurement policies and processes for the Acquisitions Program to PWGSC Acquisitions Branch and regional acquisition offices. Related modifications to the Supply Manual (SM) or the Standard Acquisition Clauses and Conditions (SACC) Manual are usually published simultaneously with the promulgation of the PN.

Legend for the Policy Notification (PN) table

PNs remain "Active" until the changes are incorporated into the SM or SACC Manual. Information contained in active PNs take precedence over the content of these two manuals.
PN is tagged as "Archived" 6 months following its release provided that the related changes have already been incorporated into the Supply Manual or SACC Manual.
No change:
The PN does not affect the content of the SM or SACC Manual and "no change" has been made. The designation “No change” was introduced on 2015-02-25, therefore only “Active” PNs at that time and PNs issued after this date may be designated as containing “no change”.
SM/SACC Version:
The version numbers in which the changes were incorporated.
