This procurement has been set aside under the federal government's Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB). In order to be considered, a supplier must certify that it qualifies as an Aboriginal business as defined under PSAB and that it will comply with all requirements of PSAB.
This procurement is set aside from the international trade agreements under the provision each has for set-asides for small and minority businesses.  Further to Article 1802 of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT), AIT does not apply to this procurement.
This Request for Proposal (RFP) is to acquire a Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) solution that can be integrated with the Office of the Auditor General of Canada’s (OAG) current network infrastructure.  The RFP provides proponents with the relevant operational, performance, application, and architectural requirements of the system.
The OAG is currently revamping its network infrastructure.  Consequently, the OAG intends to invest in tools that provide for better intelligence and more proactive security controls.  The purpose of this RFP is to select a competent Proponent who has sufficient experience supplying, installing, training and supporting industry leading SIEM solutions.  The selected SIEM solution will allow the consolidation of system logs that are a part of the OAG’s critical infrastructure and allow the ability to alert the organization to ongoing issues and to track incidents back to an original event.
The OAG is not interested in acquiring managed services and/or a hosted solution.
