    This bid solicitation is being issued to satisfy the requirement of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. It is intended to result in the award of one (1) contract from contract award to March 31, 2025 with two (2), one (1) year option periods.

    Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) supports the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector through initiatives that promote innovation and competitiveness.

    The Department has over 5,000 employees at 55 work locations (subject to change) across Canada. Locations include research centers, farms and regional offices. Persons are employed in a variety of different fields such as Business / Commerce, Communications, Human Resources, Information Technology, Internal Services and Science and Technology.

    As COVID-19 measures and safety precautions are coming to an end, the majority of AAFC employees are working a hybrid work schedule with 40% to 60% of hours worked to be completed on-site, in the workplace. Some employees continue to work virtually from home, depending on their job requirements and personal or medical needs.

    Pursuant to the Treasury Board Secretariat’s Directive on the Duty to Accommodate, AAFC has an obligation to develop an inclusive, barrier-free workplace. The goal is to provide a work environment that allows all candidates for employment and persons employed to work to the best of their abilities, without barriers or discrimination.

    The AAFC Integrated Disability Management team supports and brings together employees, managers, union representatives (if applicable) and specialists to identify appropriate solutions to address limitations, restrictions or work-related needs.

    AFC must also meet the legal obligations established by:

    Canadian Human Rights Act
    Employment Equity Act
    Privacy Act
    Canada Labour Code
    Accessible Canada Act

    In order to implement the Treasury Board Policy on the Duty to Accommodate Persons with Disabilities in the Federal Public Service and AAFC’s Workplace Accommodation Guidelines, the Department requires the assistance of external experts in workspace ergonomic services.

    Ergonomics involves the applied science of equipment design and configuration that seeks to maximize productivity and reduce risks by adapting the work environment to meet the physical needs of the worker.

    There is a Security component associated with this requirement.
