When a public sector organization uses an outside consultant to develop RFP Statements of Work (SOW) or supplier selection criteria, Canada’s Auditor General and Treasury Board have advised that a conflict of interest can occur unless the public sector organization first obtains appropriate written certifications from the consultant. Despite this, some consultants providing RFP development services to the public sector also advise RFP bidders on how to develop their proposals!
Since our inception, RFPSOLUTIONS INC. (RFPS) has worked exclusively for public sector organizations, and we always provide our public sector clients with signed certifications respecting conflict-of-interest, non-disclosure and non-participation in any and all ensuing RFP processes to which the firm and its personnel have contributed. We always have, and we always will. All information provided to RFPS is maintained in strict accordance with our security obligations and undertakings to the public sector.
We work with the non-profit Canadian Institute for Procurement and Materiel Management (CIPMM) to deliver training sessions on procurement topics. Our courses have been completed by hundreds of public sector employees, and are recognized for professional accreditation by the Government of Canada.
We have an established Aboriginal Joint-Venture with our partner organization SETASIDE SOLUTIONS, that meets all of the requirements of the Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB). For two years the Joint-Venture provided RFP development and procurement-related support to over two hundred projects under a its own Standing Offer with Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC).
RFPS believes that to complete a relatively simple RFP, it shouldn’t always be necessary for a public sector manager to bring in an outside specialist. What many public sector managers often need is a timely and correct answer to their question, a user-friendly tool to complete a basic task, or some information to help point them in the right direction.
RFPS’ free SOWWriting Guide ® has been downloaded thousands of times, and is used by public sector organizations across Canada and around the world. The SOW Writing Guide is so widely used, it has been made a popular external link within the “Statement of Work” section on Wikipedia.

The Government of Canada is a signatory to numerous Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements (CLCAs). Many of the CLCAs contain a number of unique and specific obligations that apply each time a Government of Canada department/agency intends to establish a contract that has a location of delivery within a CLCA.
Within the field of Canadian public sector procurement, there are literally hundreds of unique and specific terms used to describe: methods of supply; policy obligations; contract conditions; contracting mechanisms; and more. For many public sector officials, the existence of so many terms (some of which have competing definitions) is a barrier to their utilization of the procurement process in support of program delivery.
By invitation, RFPS personnel have delivered the Statement of Work (SOW) Seminar ® to several different groups, including the Canadian Institute of Procurement and Materiel Management, the Government of Canada’s Small Agencies Administrative Network and numerous public sector organizations.
RFPS is working with several Canadian public sector organizations to increase quality, compliance and throughput times for their procurement transactions. We are doing this through the introduction of our training, tools, standardized templates and expert systems, and by working with public sector organizations to establish measurable Procurement Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
