Remarks – Recommended Use of SACC Item

Include the following in solicitations that are subject to the Nunavut Directive, and are limited to competition among firms on the Inuit Firm Registry (IFR).

Contracting Authorities must ensure that the timeframes provided for IFR registration are appropriate given the nature of the specific procurement.

For each new procurement that is subject to the Directive, an up-to-date supplementary template (Inuit Benefits Plan (IBP), IBP Progress Report and IBP Evaluation) must be obtained from Strategic Policy Sector’s Indigenous Procurement Policy Division (IPPD).
