The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) which replaces the obligations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), will enter into force on July 1, 2020. NAFTA will continue to apply to procurements commenced prior to CUSMA’s effective date of July 1, 2020, until those procurements are complete. With respect to the methods of supply, NAFTA will be replaced by the Canada Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA).

Important notice to all suppliers

Visit the Task Based Informatics Professional Service/Services professionels en informatique centrés sur les tâches (EN578-170432/B) solicitation which is currently available on the Buyandsell.gc.ca site.

Refreshes are for 1) new suppliers who did not submit a proposal under the re-competition and wish to submit one, or 2) existing suppliers who wish to submit a proposal because they wish to add additional categories to their TBIPS profile. Existing suppliers who do not wish to add additional categories to their profile do not need to submit a proposal for a 'refresh'.


Welcome to the Task-Based–Informatics Professional Services Standing Offer and Supply Arrangement (TBIPS)

A TBIPS requirement is related to a particular activity required to address a specific Information Technology (IT) need and is usually associated with a specified set of responsibilities.

The tasks involved are finite work assignments that require one or more consultants to complete. A task involves a specific start date, a specific end date, and set deliverables. Tasks are usually not large projects, although they may be subsets of a larger project. Tasks may require highly specialized work to be performed requiring a rare or unique skill or knowledge for a short period of time.
