Incident Occurrence—Matrix of Responsibilities

Many Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) facilities are now managed by Alternate Forms of Delivery (AFD) contractors or landlords, therefore the roles and responsibilities of PSPC in the management of incidents can vary. For most incidents in federal facilities PSPC is not only the custodian but also the authority having jurisdiction, responsible to ensure personnel/user safety and protect government assets. In other incidents such as fire or criminal activity, the fire department or police force temporarily become the authority having jurisdiction. In leased facilities, the facility owner usually exercises this role and PSPC must work in conjunction with the owner to manage the incident immediately and mitigate additional damage/injury. The Matrix of Responsibilities provides various incident scenarios to describe roles and responsibilities. PSPC staff should consult all related contracts or leases which are in effect at the time of the incident before making any decisions.
