Professional audit support services

The Professional audit support services (PASS) supply arrangement (SA) is a federal government-wide mandatory procurement tool for the provision of professional services required to meet obligations set by two Treasury Board policies:

Preparing for CanadaBuys

Recently, Public Services and Procurement Canada launched CanadaBuys, a new suite of procurement services to help suppliers do business with the Government of Canada. The new services are designed to be easier and quicker to use than ever.

To prepare for the transition to CanadaBuys, suppliers are encouraged to register their business through SAP Ariba, the new electronic procurement solution. Please contact the CanadaBuys service desk should there be any trouble getting started on SAP Ariba.

For the latest news about PASS, visit the announcement page.

Request for supply arrangement: Quarterly refreshes

The request for supply arrangement (RFSA) solicitation for the PASS quarterly refreshes (E60ZQ-180001/D) is posted on the CanadaBuys website.

Since PASS has moved to perpetual refreshes, which means that it no longer has a scheduled re-competition, the closing date of the RFSA is December 31, 2100. As a result, existing PASS suppliers who currently hold an SA do not need to submit an arrangement unless they wish to qualify for additional streams or offer services in additional regions and/or metropolitan areas.

Please visit the Refresh/Re-competition schedule page for a list of events.

Supply arrangement

The period of the SA is from April 1, 2019 until such time as Canada chooses to re-compete the SA or no longer deems the SAs necessary.

The links below provide information regarding the use of the PASS SA.

The Centralized Professional Services System (CPSS) is the e-portal for professional services and home to the PASS method of supply.
