Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: N/A - P&A/LOI Only Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITIES New Procurement Tool for Translation Bureau Conference Interpretation Services Public Works and Government Services Canada's (PWGSC) Acquisitions Branch (AB) and the Translation Bureau (the Bureau) would like to develop a new procurement tool for the Bureau's conference interpretation services. The implementation of a new procurement tool is part of an extensive transformation initiative by the Translation Bureau aiming to simplify and improve its procurement processes and its client service. In order to develop a satisfactory procurement tool to meet the Bureau's needs, PWGSC will be undertaking an extensive consultation process. In 2014 and 2015, the AB and the Bureau will be organizing various engagement activities. These activities will provide opportunities for suppliers, professional associations and universities with interpretation programs to express their views about the new procurement tool. All stakeholders will be asked to submit comments and recommendations using communications tools made available to them and to actively participate in various engagement activities. The AB and the Bureau are thus seeking relevant recommendations for the purpose of developing an effective procurement tool that is tailored to the Bureau's conference interpretation service requirements. The following list shows the main engagement activities (approximate dates). Information webinar (Fall 2014) Initial meetings with the industry (Winter 2015) Posting of the first draft version* of the procurement tool and the related online questionnaire (Spring 2015) Focus groups (Spring 2015) Posting of the second draft version* of the procurement tool (Summer 2015) Implementation of the procurement tool (Fall 2015) *Please note that stakeholders can submit their comments and suggestions during the posting periods of the draft versions of the procurement tool. By having open and transparent discussions with the industry, the AB and the Bureau intend to develop an effective procurement tool that will help the Bureau standardize and enhance its contracting practices and increase productivity. For suppliers, implementation of the new procurement tool will make contracting easier and will strengthen the principles of transparency and fairness. Ultimately, the purpose of this coordinated procurement approach is to improve service delivery to our partners, to our clients and to Canadians, and to ensure best value for the government. To keep abreast of proposed activities, please visit the Buyandsell.gc.ca site frequently.
