    REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) 
    
    REGARDING THE TRANSFORMATION OF PAY ADMINISTRATION INITIATIVE 
    TRAINING PARTNERSHIP STRATEGY
    
    FOR  PUBLIC WORKS AND GOVERNMENT SERVICES CANADA
    
    
    SUMMARY
    The Accounting Banking and Compensation Branch of Public Works
    and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has a requirement to
    establish sustainable partnerships with Canadian Educational
    Institutions in order to generate a pool of graduates for
    potential employment within the Public Service Pay Centre, the
    Federal Government, or private sector organizations within the
    field of compensation.
    
    A major element of the current strategy focuses on supplementing
    Canadian Educational Institution course curriculum with
    compensation employee training material.  By supplementing
    current course curriculum with compensation or specialized
    training material that is currently provided internally within
    PWGSC, the potential exists for graduating students to be better
    prepared for a career in the public and private sectors.
    
    
    PURPOSE OF THE RFI
    PWGSC is issuing this RFI in order to gauge the Educational
    Services Industry's interest in establishing long term
    sustainable partnerships with Canada for the training of future
    compensation employees and to seek feedback from the Educational
    Services Industry on the proposed strategy outlined in Annex A. 
    All stakeholders are encouraged to provide information that they
    feel PWGSC should be aware of in the development of a training
    partnership strategy.
    
    This RFI includes a questionnaire at Annex B that consists of
    specific questions for the Educational Services Industry to
    respond to. Your participation would be greatly appreciated.
    
    
    NATURE OF THE RFI
    This is not a bid solicitation. This RFI will not result in the
    award of any contract or an offer of employment opportunities or
    offers.  As a result, potential suppliers of any goods or
    services described in this RFI should not reserve stock or
    facilities, nor allocate resources, as a result of any
    information contained in this RFI. This RFI is simply intended
    to solicit feedback from industry with respect to the matters
    described in this RFI.
