    SCC will be developing a guided and purposeful conformity assessment strategy to evaluate the needs and opportunities for related conformity assessment schemes and accreditation programs. The conformity assessment strategy will provide the ultimate goal of building a brand and trust with standardization around Mental Health and Substance Use with Canadians and stakeholders.

    A final report will capture the lessons learned and key insights of the strategy, contextualizing those findings within the broader context of the roadmap, and serving as a key input into the drafting of the Mental Health and Substance Use Standardization Collaborative Roadmap.

    As such, SCC is seeking a Supplier to lead the development of a conformity assessment strategy. The selected Supplier will be expected to deliver most of the strategy, with SCC providing direction and oversight.
