Notice of proposed procurement
As part of its efforts to accelerate stabilization of the current pay system and support the development of a sustainable next generation HR and pay solution, the Government issued a notice of proposed procurement (NPP) in August 2018, calling on the private sector to propose innovative ideas and solutions in two distinct streams:
- stabilization of the current pay system and pay related activities – led by Public Services and Procurement Canada
- development of options for the next generation HR and pay solution – led by Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
The intent of this NPP was to establish a pool of qualified suppliers that can provide information and potential solutions to a variety of challenges relating to the Government’s current and future pay system. Specifically, the NPP provided a summary of the Government’s needs, as well as pertinent information that assisted suppliers in determining their interest and ability to successfully meet key conditions to participate in this procurement opportunity.
In addition to efforts already underway, the Government is committed to exploring all options, and will be working with experts, unions, public servants, and technology providers to address the current pay challenges as well as define the way forward.
