Practitioner’s Guide to Procurement Pricing

The Pricing Guide is intended to be used as a tool for those involved in Government of Canada contracting to develop effective pricing.

The objectives of the Pricing Guide are to:

  • Provide a better understanding of pricing with the Government of Canada and why it is important.
  • Provide clear and relevant pricing options available to contracting officers.
  • Provide guidance to determine best pricing options, including the associated benefits, risks, and related processes based on the nature of the procurement.
  • Outline the key steps, considerations and tools contracting officers should consider as they develop a contract pricing strategy.
  • Provide guidance on key process considerations to help increase the clarity, consistency and transparency of pricing decisions.
  • Promote the use of alternative pricing approaches and the recommended process to document and capture lessons learned.
