Legal text for SACC item

The purpose of an Initial Provisioning Guidance Conference (IPGC) is to provide instructions and assistance to the Contractor in preparing the initial provisioning documentation required in the Contract. The Contractor must contact the Procurement Authority immediately after contract award if a IPGC is required. The Conference will be held in the offices of the Procurement Authority in the National Capital Region, as soon as possible after contract award. As this is a service to the Contractor, the Contractor may not charge Canada for its costs associated with the provision of the IPGC.

Questions regarding the IPGC must be directed to the Procurement Authority.
