4.30.25. Industrial Security and International Contracts

  1. For contracts with foreign-based suppliers, the contracting officer must advise CISD of the country of origin for each foreign-based supplier that is interested in participating in the procurement activity. CISD will then verify if there is an industrial security MOU or arrangement in place with the relevant foreign country. If so, the appropriate equivalent security clauses will be provided to the contracting officer.
  2. Protected/classified information or assets for transmittal outside of Canada must be sent to the Document Control Section (DCS) of CISD who will then forward it to the recipient. Onward transmission and receipt through approved security channels will be undertaken by DCS.
  3. The contracting officer must submit the Statement of Work to CISD for review of any security wording to ensure compliance with the terms of the bilateral agreement.
