ProServices: Flexible grid

Each stream of services has its own flexible grids. The flexible grid indicates the minimum level of points required to qualify for each level of expertise. Various amounts of points are given for education, professional certification and relevant experience. The flexible grid must be used for all categories.

On this page

Experience

The experience must be demonstrated and be directly related to the consultant category. Suppliers should provide complete details as to where, when, month and year, and how, through which activities/responsibilities, the stated qualifications/experience were obtained. Experience gained during formal education will not be considered work experience. All requirements for work experience will be obtained in a legitimate work environment as opposed to an educational setting. Co-op terms are considered work experience provided they are related to the required services. The month(s) of experience listed for a project whose time frame overlaps that of another referenced project, will only be counted once.

The qualifications and experience of the proposed consultant(s) will be assessed against the requirements set out in the resulting request for proposal (RFP). The identified user may request reference information. Canada reserves the right to request references from a supplier to conduct a reference check to verify the accuracy of the information provided. Should the reference(s) not confirm the required qualifications of the proposed consultant(s) to perform the required services, Canada reserves the right to go to the next supplier. If applicable, the consultant(s) proposed must meet the minimum experience requirements detailed in the resulting RFP for the category for which they are being proposed.

Education

Academic certification (degree, etc.) must be obtained through a recognized academic institution in the field of expertise. Points will only be awarded for the highest level of education achieved by the consultant.

If applicable, the consultant(s) proposed must meet the education requirements detailed in the RFP for the consultant category for which they are being proposed. Where the resulting RFP requests the supplier to provide information about the education of the proposed individual, the individual must have obtained its education from a recognizedFootnote *  Canadian university, college or high school, or the equivalent as established by a recognized Canadian academic credentials assessment service, if obtained outside Canada.

Relevant professional certification

The professional certification must be valid and relevant to the specific consultant category. A maximum of 1 certification will receive points.

How to use the flexible grid

Points will be allocated to each consultant proposed by the supplier for the education, the certification and the experience. The total of points will determine if the consultant is considered as a Junior, intermediate or senior.

The identified user will specify what level of expertise (junior, intermediate or senior) needed for their requirement and the supplier will have to propose a consultant meeting the minimum of points required to obtain that level. The supplier can propose a consultant with a higher level of expertise, but the per diem rate of the level of expertise required by the identified user will apply.

Also, if needed, the identified user has the discretion to add additional mandatory requirements for type and quantity of education, certification or experience in the technical mandatory criteria section of their RFP and the supplier must propose a consultant meeting the identified users requirement.

The identified user will have the responsibility to assess the education, certification and experience of the consultant being proposed by the supplier to ensure the minimum points are met for the level of expertise required.

It is therefore strongly recommended that PSPC's real property branch be consulted before proceeding with any requirements that fall under class 4: project management for real property.
