Service Canada - Disclosure of Contracts Over $10,000
Every three months, we will report contracts over $10,000 awarded in the previous quarter through Service Canada. Contracts awarded before October 1, 2005, are listed under Social Development Canada or Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, as appropriate. As of April 1, 2009, we will also include information on contracts with an amendment contract value over $10,000 and contract amendments when an amendment or a series of amendments to a contract exceed $10,000.
The rules and principles governing government contracting are outlined in the Treasury Board Contracting Policy. The objective of government procurement and contracting is to acquire goods and services, including construction services, in a manner that enhances access, competition and fairness and results in best value to Canada.
Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act does not appear on this website.
"Shared" contracts (as identified in the comments field) are for goods or services contracted through Service Canada that are shared between Service Canada and other government departments.
Where individual task authorizations have been reported, the master contracts have not been reported.
Some contracts involve more than one type of expense, in which case the description of the largest dollar value is used. For example, Travel - Public Servants typically relates to conferences or training courses and often includes meeting rooms, hotel rooms, and meals.
All efforts have been made to ensure that this is a comprehensive report of contracting activity for Service Canada. If any omissions or errors are identified, they will be included in a future report.
Due to a system error, amendments for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Quarter for 2014-15 are not included in their respective reports. The missing information will be included in the 4th Quarter disclosure.
