Remarks – Recommended Use of SACC Item

Use the following clause in all Requests for a Standing Offer where form 
PWGSC-TPSGC 944, Call-up Against Multiple Standing Offers, (french version is 
also available - PWGSC-TPSGC 945) is to be used as a call-up document in 
addition to the current PWGSC-TPSGC 942, Call-Up Against a Standing Offer.  
Should an offeror not agree that its agent may represent the holder of a 
standing offer other than itself and that its prices may appear on a multiple 
call-up form, then the clause should not be included in any subsequent standing 
offer and call-up authority for that offer.

Only one invoice will be issued per call-up.  Call-ups issued using form 
PWGSC-TPSGC 944 are not, under any circumstances, to be issued in order to 
prevent competition.

The purpose of form PWGSC-TPSGC 944 is to allow an identified user to issue a 
single call-up against various standing offers (not to exceed $40,000) to a 
single supplier who is the authorized agent of different offerors, when those 
offerors each hold a valid standing offer with Canada for identified goods.
