4.21.1. Administrative Agreements

Administrative Agreements are managed by the Departmental Oversight Branch (DOB). They are negotiated agreements between Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and a bidder, offeror, or supplier, current or potential, to, among other things:

  1. reduce the period of ineligibility to contract with Canada;
  2. enter into a contract where the Public Interest Exception (PIE) is invoked and where time is not of the essence; or
  3. continue a contract where the contracting authority has a right to terminate the contract due to non-compliance with the Ineligibility and Suspension Policy.

Additional information on Administrative Agreements can be found in Section 14. Administrative Agreements of the Ineligibility and Suspension Policy.
