Industry Engagement Presentation Notice for the Workplace Technology Devices (WTD) Initiative Pilot Projects – November 8, 2013

Shared Services Canada (SSC) was created to fundamentally transform how the Government of Canada manages its IT infrastructure, in order to better support the delivery of programs and services to Canadians. More specifically, SSC was established to maintain and improve IT service delivery, to generate savings and to implement government-wide solutions that are modern, reliable and secure. The Workplace Technology Devices (WTD) Initiative under SSC is a new initiative launched in April 2013 to consolidate and modernize distributed computing with the objectives of reducing costs and increasing security for 95 organizations.  One aspect of this initiative is to explore how support services could be modernized, therefore SSC will be initiating pilot projects to test different support service delivery models, sourcing strategies and technologies.

To provide a forum for the Government of Canada to engage Industry in a presentation on the scope, key requirements, service bundling, pricing models and sourcing options/strategies for the support service pilot project(s), SSC will host an Industry Engagement Presentation via web conferencing on November 8, 2013.   The Industry Engagement Presentation on the pilot project(s) is open to any interested suppliers. 

In conjunction with the Industry Engagement Presentation, SSC is seeking Industry feedback on a series of key questions related to the pilot projects(s).  It is requested that written responses to the key questions identified below be submitted by November 20, 2013.   If clarification on any of the supplier responses is required, follow up meetings may be scheduled as necessary.   

The details within this notice are intended to help prepare Industry for the engagement activities regarding the Workplace Technology Devices pilot project(s) referenced above. The Industry Engagement Presentation on the WTD initiative is open to interested suppliers and associations, as well as interested public servants.  Interested participants are requested to complete and submit the attached registration forms by November 5, 2013.

As indicated above, the Industry Engagement Presentation will be focused on the pilot(s). Additional industry engagement activities will be scheduled in the upcoming months in order to discuss broader considerations. 

All media inquiries related to the WTD Initiative should be directed to the Media Relations Office at (613) 947-6276 or .
