This information bulletin is effective April 4, 2016.
The Ineligibility and Suspension Policy enables Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to issue information bulletins associated with the policy to provide greater clarity for informational purposes only.
Types of contracts and real property agreements not requiring an integrity verification
Contracting authorities are not required to conduct an integrity verification for the following:
- Task authorizations
- Amendments to a contract or real property agreement (unless there is an amendment in the integrity clauses and/or a change to the board of directors)
- Call-ups against Standing Offers
- Contract award against a Supply Arrangement
- Sub-agreement for Lessee's Improvements
As an integrity verification was performed at the time that these instruments were established, a second integrity verification is not required.
Monitoring compliance during the life of a contract/real property agreement
PWGSC will monitor suppliers' compliance with the Integrity Regime throughout the life of a contract or real property agreement. A notice will be sent to the Contracting Authority responsible for the contract or real property agreement if the supplier in question becomes ineligible.
Similarly, in the case of Standing Offers and Supply Arrangements, if a supplier becomes ineligible, a notice will be sent to the contracting authority responsible for the instrument asking that, as contract clauses permit, the ineligible supplier's name be removed from the respective list.
