The [Offeror] must comply with the Policy and Directives, which can be found at Ineligibility and Suspension Policy
  2. Under the Policy, charges and convictions of certain offences against a supplier, its affiliates or first-tier subcontractors, and other circumstances, will or may result in a determination by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) that the supplier is ineligible to enter, or is suspended from entering, a contract or real property agreement with Canada. The list of ineligible and suspended suppliers is contained in PSPC's Integrity Database. The Policy describes how enquiries can be made regarding the ineligibility or suspension of suppliers

  6. Canada will declare non-responsive any [offer] in respect of which the information requested is incomplete or inaccurate, or in respect of which the information contained in a certification or declaration is found by Canada to be false or misleading in any respect. If Canada establishes after award of the [real property agreement] that the [Offeror] provided a false or misleading certification or declaration, Canada may terminate the [real property agreement] for default. Pursuant to the Policy, Canada may also determine the [Offeror] to be ineligible for award of a [real property agreement] for providing a false or misleading certification or declaration
