March 8, 2013 - Gatineau - Welcome to the new Buyandsell.gc.ca. It has a new look and feel, revamped menus, and for the first time, searchable, browsable and downloadable open data.
New Procurement Data section
Supporting Canada's Action Plan on Open Government, you can now search, sort and download open procurement data. Access Standing Offers and Supply Arrangements data to find out what businesses are pre-qualified to supply to the Government of Canada. Examine Contract History data to find information about contracts awarded by Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC) since 2009.
New search capabilities
If you find useful data, bookmark your search results link or email it to your colleagues. The URL address you save or share will stay the same when the data are refreshed and the search results change.
Here is a small sample of the power of the new search capabilities:
- Looking for a list of Task-Based Informatics Professional Services (TBIPS) holders? Get the list of all TBIPS holders.
- Want to find businesses selling to a specific government department? Find all the contracts and standing offers/supply arrangements for Health Canada.
- Does the Government of Canada buy eggs? Yes it does.
- Need to procure a radon gas detector but don't know who sells them? Here's a list of suppliers.
