Summary of additional sales

Additional sales is a procurement tool that allows testing departments to buy extra units of an innovation beyond the quantity purchased under the initial Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) contract. It also allows departments to test innovations who have previously been tested by other groups.

The benefits of additional sales

Testing departments benefit from additional sales because they are given the opportunity to:

How additional sales work

The process of purchasing additional sales includes a series of guidelines outlined below.

Eligible testing departments

The same federal government department under the original BCIP contract can request additional sales from the innovation.

Other federal government departments who did not participate in the initial BCIP contract can also request additional sales from an eligible innovation.

More than one federal government departments can request additional sales of an innovation.

Testing departments (or agencies) must be listed in the Financial Administration Act Schedules I, I.1 & II to be eligible to request additional sales.


For innovations from Call For Proposals 4-6, the contracting authority will determine the acceptable number of additional sales contracts per testing department.

Innovations from Call For Proposals 7 can each have up to three additional sales contracts.

Funding and contracting

Contracts for additional sales to further test an innovation are funded by the testing department.

Contracting is performed by the Science Procurement Directorate (SPD) of Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC).

Duration of additional sales contracts

The contract duration will be determined on a case by case basis depending on various circumstances, such as the time required to conduct test plans, seasonal requirements, manufacturing lead time, testing department resource availability, and security requirements.

In general, the contract period for additional sales will not exceed 12 months.

For software applications, including licenses, and maintenance and support, the maximum period will be 12 months.

Contract terms and conditions

Contracts for additional sales will be negotiated under the same terms, conditions and pricing structure as the initial BCIP contract

Process and resources for additional sales
