Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), on behalf of Status of Women Canada (SWC), has a requirement to procure research and studies that addresses gender equality (GE) and gender-based violence (GBV). Evidence-based policy and programs that advance GE and address GBV are driven by research comprised of high quality data and strong analysis. While important work has been done to advance knowledge on GBV and GE in Canada, there remain important knowledge gaps. SWC is therefore seeking proposals for knowledge synthesis and/or research related to gender equality (GE) or gender-based violence (GBV) in Canada.

The intent is to accept proposals in two research areas:

1) GBV in Canada, including, but not limited to, the following themes:

  • Prevention of GBV
  • Supports to Survivors and Families
  • Promotion of Responsive Justice Systems

    2) GE in Canada, limited to the following themes:

  • Economic participation and prosperity
  • Leadership and democratic participation
  • Education and skills development
  • Poverty reduction, health and well-being
  • Access to justice

    SWC also has special interest in Indigenous-led and/or co-created research related to the above research areas that meets needs identified by Indigenous communities. 

    The maximum Project Funding is up to $1,000,000.00, applicable taxes included, per contract. All work is to be completed within 24 months from date of contract award with two option periods of one year each.

    A bidders' conference will be held via WebEx in January 2019 at a date and time to be determined

The scope of the requirement outlined in the bid solicitation will be reviewed during the conference and questions will be answered. The bid submission process will also be reviewed during this time. It is recommended that bidders who intend to submit a bid participate.

Bidders must communicate with the Contracting Authority at least 2 business days before the bidders’ conference to confirm the following:

  • Who will attend
  • A list of issues they wish to table
  • The session they will attend (English or French)

A summary of the conference, clarifications and/or changes to the bid solicitation resulting from the bidders' conference, will be published as an amendment to the bid solicitation. Bidders who do not attend will not be precluded from submitting a bid.
