Pay stabilization procurement

As part of its efforts to accelerate stabilization of the current pay system and support the development of a sustainable next generation human resources (HR) and pay solution, the Government of Canada issued a notice of proposed procurement (NPP) in 2018, calling on the private sector to propose innovative ideas and solutions in 2 distinct areas:

The intent of this NPP is 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 provides a summary of the government’s needs, as well as pertinent information to assist 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 work with experts, unions, public servants and technology providers to address the current pay challenges and define the way forward.

To date, PSPC has identified several challenge categories for which innovative ideas and solutions are being sought. This page provides all procurement activities launched to date with regard to these challenges.

Next steps

As requirements for pay stabilization are constantly evolving, PSPC is currently re-evaluating the remaining challenge categories against current and future needs. For example, solutions being brought forward through robotic process automation could change the requirements for the remaining categories, such as training or user access management.

Therefore, PSPC plans to review and refresh the lists of qualified suppliers for the invitation to qualify launched in October 2018, based on future needs. Results from this exercise are expected in early 2021.
