    Contract Award and Anticipated Security Requirements

    In order to be eligible for contract award, a consultant or contractor will be required to, among other things, actively hold all required security clearance(s) at the time of closing, as further detailed in the solicitation tender documents.

    Industrial Security Program (ISP) Sponsorship

    Defence Construction Canada (DCC) is providing consultants or contractors early access to the security clearance application process through sponsorship under its Industrial Security Program (ISP). Accordingly, consultants or contractors that are interested in submitting or participating in a proposal/bid for these procurements that fall under this program and that do not actively hold the above identified security clearance(s) should begin the security clearance application process by applying through DCC’s ISP.

    To begin the security clearance sponsorship process, please submit a sponsorship request application to DCC by following the steps identified on DCC’s website at: https://www.dcc-cdc.gc.ca/industry/security-requirements.

    • Contract number as referenced in the table above; and
    • Level of clearance requested to be sponsored for.

      Sponsorship Process

      Upon receipt, DCC will review the sponsorship request application and will communicate directly with the consultant or contractor to complete a sponsorship request package. Once DCC has determined that the consultant or contractor has substantially completed the sponsorship request package, DCC will forward the package to the CSP, PWGSC on behalf of the consultant or contractor based on the following timelines:

    • 30 calendar days prior to planned solicitation/tender closing, for DESIGNATED ORGANIZATION SCREENING (DOS).

      Following receipt of the sponsorship request package, the CSP, PWGSC will communicate directly with the consultant or contractor regarding any further steps or actions to be undertaken or the status of the sponsorship request package processing. At such time, the consultant or contractor will need to cooperate with the CSP, PWGSC in a timely fashion to further the process.
