Procurement and Contracting (Table 11)

Points to Address Department’s Input
1. Role played by procurement and contracting in delivering programs Procurement and Contracting play a central role in the program delivery of the School. Particularly, procurement allows the School to obtain advice in support of its program delivery as well as essential materials to support classroom activities. Contracting allows the department to achieve operational requirements, such as the retention of special resources and teaching staff that support learning activities. These activities also spur growth in the Canadian economy.
2. Overview of how the department manages its contracting function The School operates in a centralized environment with procurement personnel in Headquarters. In addition, the procurement and contracting unit provides advices and guidance to managers on policy procedures.

The School awarded 4,889 contracts in 2006–07, valued at approximately $37.7 million.
3. Progress and new initiatives enabling effective and efficient procurement practices The School has developed a site on its intranet with departmental procurement operational policies.
