The Public Procurement Act, which helps modernize procurement by provincial public bodies, will come into effect on March 24, 2018. Regulations to accompany the act have now been published. Rules relating to supplier debriefings, the complaint process and supplier performance will come into effect six months after the rest of the act is proclaimed. The new Public Procurement Act will replace the decades old Public Tender Act. The new legislation responds to feedback from public consultations, as well as a 2008 report by Read and Associates that recommended changes.
The Government Purchasing Agency will give a presentation on the new legislation with an opportunity for questions and answers.
Presented By: Sean Dutton, Chief Procurement Officer (interim) of the Government Purchasing Agency and the Deputy Minister of Service Newfoundland and Labrador and Dale Williams, Director of Audit, Information and Training at GPA.
