Letter of Intent (LOI) re ProServices, the replacement of

In December 2011, Public Works and Government Services Canada
(PWGSC) launched the implementation of the Professional Services
National Procurement Strategy to reduce red tape, increase
access and reduce the administrative burden of clients and
suppliers when contracting for professional services.  To
achieve these objectives, the Strategy includes the development
of a single, mandatory supply arrangement for requirements
valued below the NAFTA threshold, (currently $78,500), which
will replace the various overlapping procurement instruments,
such a PSOnline.  This single, mandatory supply arrangement will
be called ProServices and will contain, initially, categories
from Task and Solutions Professional Services [task based]
(TSPS) and Task Based Informatics Professional Services (TBIPS).

The purpose of this LOI is to provide industry with an
opportunity to participate in Canada wide consultations on
ProServices, starting in August 2012.  The goal of these
consultations is to continue to gather feedback on proposed
evaluation criteria: for example, number of years in business;
number of projects directly related to categories of personnel;
possible "grandfathering" of existing  pre-qualified suppliers
from TSPS [task based] and TBIPS supply arrangements, etc. 

In the Fall of 2012, a Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA) for
ProServices will be released through the Government Electronic
Tendering System (MERX). The launch of ProServices is planned
for Spring 2013, and will be accessed through the single
e-Portal, Centralized Professional Service System (CPSS).

The following is the list of dates and locations for anticipated
