    A significant project is being initialized to modernize aging Business Intelligence (BI) solutions as well as deliver new solutions required to enable Elections Canada to further deliver its mandate more efficiently and effectively.

    The Elections Canada Chief Information Officer (CIOB) Branch is a relatively small organization supporting a large number of business applications that were built on a broad range of new and old technology platforms, and as such, requires that all IM/IT resources possess a breadth of analysis and design, development and support skills, and flexibility to move quickly from assignment to assignment in response to shifting priorities.


    Elections Canada requires the professional services of senior system administrators on an “as and when requested” basis to assist with the planning, design, build, deployment, implementation, configuration, integration, maintenance and support for existing and planned Elections Canada-licensed BI and analytics software solutions, processes and procedures.

    Period of the Contract

    The Contract period will be from the Effective Date of the Contract until March 31, 2019 (the “Initial Term”). The Contractor will grant to Elections Canada irrevocable options to extend the period of the Contract by four additional periods of one year under the same terms and conditions.
