    Description

    The Government of Canada (GC) is committed to providing secure, reliable and cost-effective digital communications services, including cloud computing, to support the delivery of programs and services to Canadians.

    Cloud computing is shifting the way IT services are delivered globally and the GC wishes to obtain the benefits of this new IT service delivery model. In 2016, SSC initiated a competitive procurement process to establish multiple contracts for the supply of cloud services for unclassified data. The solicitation process concluded in the spring of 2018, with the establishment of twenty-six contracts with qualified vendors offering public cloud services, from eight different Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). Additional details can be found at the following link: https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/award-notice/PW-16-00757616-001

    At the GC Cloud First Day on February 7, 2018, it was announced that the GC would launch a future procurement process for PROTECTED cloud services.

Suppliers are invited to pre-qualify in accordance with the terms and conditions of this ITQ in order to become Qualified Respondents for any later phases of the procurement process.
