9.40.10. Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business and trade agreements

  1. Canada's free trade agreements pose no impediment to the inclusion of measures for the benefit of Indigenous Peoples and/or businesses in a procurement. This includes setting aside procurements for Aboriginal business under the Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB). If a procurement has been set-aside under PSAB, it is no longer subject to the obligations of the trade agreements and no longer falls under the jurisdiction of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT).
  2. Contracting officers must insert SACC Manual clause A3002T in bid solicitations for procurements that have been set aside under PSAB, when the procurement would have been otherwise subject to one or more trade agreements.
