Goods and Services Identification Number
The Government of Canada uses Goods and Services Identification Number (GSIN) codes to identify generic product descriptions for its procurement activities. On Buyandsell.gc.ca, GSIN codes connect all of the procurement information, including Tender Notices, Award Notices, Standing Offers and Supply Arrangements, and Contract History.
The GSIN CSV file published on this page is updated on an “as needed” frequency, when codes are either created or deactivated on Buyandsell.gc.ca. Visit the "About GSIN Codes" page to learn more: https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/goods-and-services-identification-number/about-gsin-codes.
The Procurement Data Dictionary offers a description of each data field contained in the GSIN file, as well as other datasets published on Buyandsell.gc.ca. The XML file is meant to be used as a guide for understanding the various data elements. It is updated on an “as needed” frequency to reflect changes to data elements on Buyandsell.gc.ca.
