Request for Information on Awards and Recognition Programs, Products & Services.

RFI Purpose:

The Parliamentary Protective Service is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) as a mean of gathering information on Awards and Recognition Programs, Products & Services that meet the Parliamentary Protective Service’s essential requirements, as defined in the RFI. 

This RFI is not a bid solicitation and does not constitute a commitment with respect to future purchases or contracts. Potential suppliers of any goods or services described in this RFI should not reserve stock or facilities, nor allocate resources, as a result of any information contained in this RFI.

RFI Objective:

On June 23, 2015, the Parliamentary Protective Service was created by law under the Parliament of Canada Act. The Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Commons are, as the custodians of the powers, privileges, rights and immunities of their respective Houses and of the members of those Houses, responsible for the Service. The newly created parliamentary entity amalgamated the former Senate Protective Service, House of Commons Security Services, and detection specialists, into a single unified security service to serve the Parliament of Canada. While the Director of the Service must be a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) by law, he or she has control and management of the daily operations of the organization.

The Parliamentary Protective Service (PPS) is launching an Awards Program for Long Service, and Retirements and a program to recognize innovations and excellence among its employees.

This Request for Information (RFI) is to seek information and feedback from industry Suppliers with regards to Awards and Recognition products and service offerings, as well as some preliminary feedback on pricing, and to provide PPS with an opportunity to examine and review gift ideas to be used as awards for long service; retirements; and excellence.


Please direct enquiries to the Contracting Authority named on page 1 of the RFI document and/or to the individual mentioned in the RFI poster.

Note to Respondents

Respondents must refer to the RFI documents for the complete requirement.
Delivery Date: Above-mentioned
The PPS retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement. Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
