Supply Arrangement (SA):

A Supply Arrangement (SA) is a method of supply used by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to procure goods and services. A SA is an arrangement between Canada and pre-qualified suppliers that allows identified users to solicit bids from a pool of pre-qualified suppliers for specific requirements within the scope of a SA.

A SA is not a contract for the provision of the goods and services described in it and neither party is legally bound as a result of signing a SA alone. The intent of a SA is to establish a framework to permit expeditious processing of “individual bid solicitations” which result in legally binding contracts for the goods and services described in those bid solicitations

On-going Opportunity for Qualification

A request for supply arrangements will be issued in accordance with the process set out below to allow new suppliers to qualify. The already qualified suppliers that were awarded a supply arrangement won’t have to submit a new arrangement.

(i) Permanent notice
A few weeks after the award of the first supply arrangments, a permanent notice will be issued on the Government Electronic Tendering System (GETS) for the duration of the Supply Arrangement. This notice will describe the procurement mechanism and invite suppliers to submit arrangements to become qualified suppliers and be awarded with a supply arrangement.

(ii) New suppliers: new suppliers may submit their application to become holders of a supply arrangement during the supply arrangement period. Already qualified suppliers won’t be removed from the suppliers list because new suppliers get qualified.

(iii) Number of supply arrangements: The Supplier acknowledges that Canada may award an unlimited number of supply arrangements throughout the period of the supply arrangement.

(iv) Cycles of qualification: Due to the resources required to evaluate the proposals, Canada reserves the right to conduct the evaluation of proposals no less than semi-annually (that is, Canada may gather proposals received over a six-month period, in order to conduct the evaluation of the proposals concurrently as part of a single cycle of evaluations).

Semi-annually Evaluation Periods:

Semester Closing Date Time of Closing Evaluation Period
S1 1st working day of December 02:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) December to May 31
S2 1st working day of June 02:00 PM Eastern Advance Time (EAT) June to August 31

(v) Inability to qualify : PWGSC will inform all suppliers who are not qualified and will indicate the reasons why their proposal was rejected.

During the six (6) months period following his inability to qualify, a supplier may submit a new proposal to support its qualifications. PWGSC can conduct another evaluation, as per the Cycles of Qualification paragraph above.

The second time a supplier does not qualify, PWGSC will not evaluate other proposals from this supplier (bidding as an individual or as part of a joint venture) for a six (6) months period.
