Federal departments are moving their web content to Canada.ca. As a part of that process, proactive disclosure reports will become available through the Open Government portal. During this transition, if a proactive disclosure report from a specific department is not yet available on the Open Government portal please refer to Proactive disclosure by department or agency where a copy can be found. For any questions on this issue, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
About this information
As part of Canada’s second Action Plan on Open Government, the Government of Canada has committed to the disclosure of contracting data via a centralized, machine-readable database available to the public. Originally announced in Budget 2004, departments are required to disclose contracts and amendments valued over and under $10,000 in a manner outlined in the Guidelines on the Proactive Disclosure of Contracts. Amendments to the Access to Information Act codified the aforementioned reporting requirements with the Royal assent of Bill C-58 in June 2019.
Information on contracts issued/amended by or on behalf of federal institutions can be searched here using keyword, institution, quarter, and year.
The Treasury Board Contracting Policy outlines the rules and principles governing government contracting. The objective is to procure contracting of goods and services in a manner that enhances access, competition and fairness and results in best value to Canada.
