REQUIREMENT

The Professional Audit and Support Services Supply Arrangement (PASS SA) is a federal government-wide mandatory procurement tool for the provision of professional services required to meet obligations set by two Treasury Board policies: the Policy on Internal Audit and the Policy on Financial Management.  This solicitation is a Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA) to renew the PASS SA procurement instruments which have been put in place to satisfy Canada's various requirements for audit and related professional services across Canada, excluding any locations in areas subject to any of the Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements.  It allows new and existing Suppliers to submit an arrangement to qualify for those Streams for which they wish to have an SA.

This procurement vehicle includes the eight following existing
Streams of professional services:

Stream 1: Internal Audit;
Stream 2: Internal Audit Quality Assessments;
Stream 3: Information Technology and Systems Audit;
Stream 4: Forensic Audit;
Stream 5: External Audit;
Stream 6: Financial and Accounting Services;
Stream 7: Internal Control Training; and
Stream 8: Recipient/Contribution Agreement Audit

SAs resulting from this RFSA will not be used for staffing or for Temporary Help Services (THS) requirements.

The resulting SAs will remain valid until such time as Canada chooses to re-compete the SA, no longer deems the SAs necessary, or proceeds with a different procurement vehicle.

Unlike the PASS Re-competition solicitation (i.e. RFSA E60ZQ-180001/C), this Refresh solicitation DOES NOT require all suppliers to submit an arrangement in order to be awarded or maintain a PASS SA.  This Refresh solicitation provides the opportunity to New Suppliers to qualify for a PASS SA; it also provides Existing Suppliers the opportunity to qualify for more Streams, etc., throughout the validity period of the PASS SA.

***PLEASE REFER TO THE SOLICITATION DASHBOARD OF THE CPSS ePORTAL FOR THE CURRENT CLOSING DATE OF THE APPLICABLE REFRESH PERIOD***
 
SECURITY REQUIREMENT:

There is a security requirement associated with the requirement of the SA. For additional information, see Part 4 - Evaluation Procedures and Basis of Selection, Part 6A - Supply Arrangement.

SET-ASIDE PROGRAM FOR ABORIGINAL BUSINESS:

Part of this procurement may be designated by one or more Identified Users as set-aside under the federal government's Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB). 

In order to be considered as an Aboriginal Business under the PSAB, the Supplier must complete the Aboriginal Business certification contained in the Data Collection Component of the CPSS.

OFFICIAL LANGUAGES:

The services to be provided will be delivered in one or both of the two official languages of Canada according to the requirements of the Identified User issuing a contract against the SA.


CENTRALIZED PROFESSIONAL SERVICES SYSTEM (CPSS)

All suppliers that want to submit an arrangement will have to establish an account in the Supplier Module of the PWGSC Centralized Professional Services System (CPSS) e-Portal.  Instructions on accessing the Supplier Module e-Portal application are specified in the RFSA document published on GETS. 

Suppliers will be required to submit a portion of their arrangement through the CPSS e-Portal Supplier Module.

Should suppliers encounter technical difficulties with the Data Collection Component (for example, not able to access, save, or
enter data as noted), please review Attachment B of the RFSA (Guide to Centralized Professional Services System (CPSS) Data Collection Component) or send an email to the CPSS inbox at
SSPC.CPSS@tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca.
