Changes to Shared Services Canada (SSC)’s Mandate & Authorities

The recent Order In Council reaffirms SSC's mandate for the provision of services related to email, data centers and networks for its original 43 partner departments and adds small departments and agencies who will leverage SSC's procurement instruments which include enterprise-wide agreements and contracts.

The Session explained how SSC is working to enhance and evolve procurement tools being transferred from PWGSC.

The speakers will explained how the procurement instruments used by SSC can help your department leverage government-wide buying power and assure appropriate standards of supply chain integrity. We also learned how SSC plans to engage with partners, clients and stakeholders during this transition.
