CSA Eligibility Guidelines
Corporate Supply Arrangements (CSAs) have been established for use by government ministries and public sector organizations in B.C.
B.C. Government ministries:
All B.C. Government ministries are eligible to access the pricing, terms and conditions set out in the supply arrangements. There are some supply arrangements which are restricted to specific ministries. This is noted in the Important Information at the bottom of the supply arrangement webpage.
Public sector organizations:
Broader public sector organizations in the province of B.C. may be eligible to access the pricing, terms and conditions set out in many of these supply arrangements. These organizations need to:
- meet the eligibility criteria set out below
- complete a CSA Access Agreement
Organizations for which we have a CSA Access Agreement on file are listed on the CSA User List. Each supply arrangement webpage indicates if it is available for broader public sector organizations to use.
All organizations that have access are listed on the CSA Users list.
