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:

This Manual is intended to provide suppliers and clients of Public Works 
and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) with information on terms and 
conditions commonly used in the contracting process by the federal 
government and PWGSC. Its contents are referred to in bidding opportunities 
and contracting activities.

The Standard Acquisition Clauses and Conditions (SACC) Manual is designed 
to make dealing with the government more time and cost efficient by 
reducing the level of detailed text contained within the various 
procurement documents. Those basic clauses and conditions which are 
normally attached to each document will be issued by the Department through 
"Incorporation by Reference". Specific attachments and clauses will be 
simply identified by their number, title and effective date. Full text 
reading capability will be provided through the appropriate section of the 
Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS), provided by MERX, and of 
the hard copy of the SACC Manual itself.

This Manual signifies an important step in PWGSC's continuing move towards 
electronic contracting and is critical in preparing solicitation documents 
for electronic display of full Requests for Proposals/Tenders.
