We encourage you to register for the upcoming annual CIPMM National Workshop, being held on May 12th - 13th, 2014 at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre.

The overarching theme is "Managing Through Transition - Know Yourself". The CIPMM Organizing Committee is hard at work developing the sub-themes and program that will inspire, educate and enhance the wellbeing and management and technical skills of attendees.

Tools, Tips & Info

Intellectual Property in Federal Crown Procurement Contracts Clarified

Effective April 1, 2015, the Policy on Title to Intellectual Property arising under Crown Procurement Contracts has been updated to further assist federal departments and agencies in identifying IP generated in procurement contracts and confirming its potential for commercial exploitation. As previously, with the aim to assist in further commercial development of Intellectual Property (IP), any IP generated under a Crown Procurement Contract remains the property of the Contractor, unless a valid exception is taken within the procurement and contract documents. The Policy remains focused on identification and management of new IP (“foreground”) which may be created in the course of work under a procurement Contract, and does not impact on existing IP of the Crown or the Contractor (“background”). The revised policy includes a new reporting requirement for federal officials to support development of an annual report on ownership of IP and its potential commercial exploitation.


Did you know...?  Canada - Korea Free Trade Agreement is in effect 

Effective January 1, 2015, buyers in the federal public sector are navigating the application of Canada’s latest bilateral trade agreement to its Procurement and Contracting activities. The Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement applies to procurement and contracts of covered Goods and Services valued at $100,000 (CAD) or greater, and Construction valued at $7.7 Million* (CAD) [*note the value threshold for Construction will be adjusted every two (2) years]. The Agreement covers most Goods, and a broad range of professional and operational services.  While there are common provisions between the WTO-Agreement on Government Procurement and the Canada-Korea FTA, procurement officials should review the Agreement at Chapter 14 to ensure their procurement strategies take the CKFTA into account.
