Consulting and Procurement Advisory Services
The Procurement Services Branch (PSB) can provide professional advice and consultation services for open tendering processes that comply with government policy, trade agreements and legal and legislative obligations. Through PSB/Strategic and Advisory Services (S&AS), they provide procurement planning, advice and facilitation services for complex, specialty or strategic projects, and all IM/IT projects valued over $500,000. Similarly, all solicitations for IM/IT projects between $100,000 and $500,000 must be reviewed by PSB/S&AS. As a secondary focus, S&AS also assists core government and the broader public sector with advisory support to develop and mentor decentralized procurement staff.
Services are cost recoverable and will be rendered through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). MOUs may be developed on an annual basis for ad-hoc advice and multiple project assistance or on a project-by-project basis. Services may include any or all of the following:
- Procurement Planning
- Pre-Award and selection
- Post Contract Evaluation
- Vendor Relation Management
