Doing business with Public Works and Government Services Canada

Call for volunteers for new committee

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) Acquisitions is streamlining its procurement process. Several years ago, PWGSC issued an RFP for a company to contract and manage external consultants for all federal government projects in eight regions across Canada. One company was awarded the contract, extending from 2004 to 2013.

More recent, PWGSC published a Request for Information (RFI) on the MERX website in order to decide if an RFP (Request for Proposal) should be issued for the contract after 2013. The RFI invites all major national associations, interior designers, engineers, construction associations, and architects to comment on the RFI and IDC needs your help to form a small committee in response to it. The deadline to submit comments is April 20.

If you work with PWGSC and can provide information on the bidding process, requirements for working with government, or contract documents, such as carrying liability insurance and are interested in participating on this committee, please contact Susan Wiggins, Executive Director, at
