Preparing for Canada Buys
Recently, Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) 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.

Task and solutions professional services (TSPS) consists of 2 mandatory methods of supply, the:
- task-based methods of supply:
Client departments can use the TSPS task-based supply arrangements (SAs) via the method of supply for non-information technology (IT) requirements valued at or above the Canada Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA) threshold. All requirements below the CKFTA threshold must be done by using the ProServices method of supply
- solution-based methods of supply:
Client departments can use the TSPS solution-based SAs issued via the method of supply for any non-IT requirement, regardless of the dollar value
These methods of supply allow client departments to solicit competitive bids from a pool of pre-qualified SA holders for non-informatics professional services requirements.
Request for supply arrangement: Ongoing opportunity to qualify
Suppliers interested in being issued a supply arrangement must first pre-qualify under the TSPS methods of supply through our request for supply arrangement (RFSA) process.
The following RFSAs are perpetual and are refreshed on a quarterly basis which align with the Government of Canada’s fiscal year quarters.
The RFSA tender notices can be found on the Buyandsell site using the below links:
The period of the supply arrangements is from award date until December 31, 2100 or until such time as Canada chooses to re-compete the supply arrangements or no longer deems the supply arrangements necessary.
The links below provide information regarding the use of the TSPS task-based and solution-based supply arrangements.
