    Solicitation No. R000034918

    Description of Requirement

    SSC’s Network and End Users Branch (NEUB) is responsible for providing enterprise, end-user focused solutions, both nationally and internationally, to the GC. The Enterprise Mobile Device Management (EMDM) service supports mobile devices secure access to GC assets. The current service iteration was deployed under a critical need to support smartphones other than those using the BlackBerry operating system, and whose goal was simply feature parity with the multiple technical solutions previously in place.

    The objective of this Request for Information (RFI) is to obtain industry feedback in order to assist SSC in the creation of a strategic source methodology for services or solutions that will support the evolution of the EMDM service.

    It is planned that the end result is a competed process, where the proposed offerings would:

    • Innovate the solution space so that the GC moves towards a modern workspace;
    • Provide Proof of Concepts (POC) for both function and integration demonstrations;
    • Maintain strategic alignment across the GC, in particular with Blueprint 2020 and the GC IT Strategic Plan;
    • Develop a strategic partnership with industry, with facilitated integration into developing areas of technology.


    Since this is not a Response solicitation, Canada will not necessarily respond to enquiries in writing or by circulating answers to all Respondents. However, Respondents with questions regarding this RFI may direct their enquiries to:
