Disclosure of Contracts valued at more than $10,000

Overview

On March 23, 2004, the Canadian Government announced a new policy on the mandatory publication of contracts with a value superior to $10,000.

In compliance with this policy, the Parks Canada Agency Web site now contains information on contracts issued by or on behalf of the Agency. The first set of data provided covers the first two quarters of fiscal year 2004-2005. As to future quarters, the Agency will henceforth publish on its Web site, thirty days after each quarter, the list of contracts issued during that quarter.

On June 19, 2008, the policy was changed to also require the disclosure of contract amendments valued over $10,000.

Effective October 31, 2012, amendments to the Guidelines on the Proactive Disclosure of Contracts require that contracts over $10,000 issued to former public servants in receipt of a pension under the Public Service Superannuation Act after January 1, 2013 be identified as such.

The rules and principles governing government contracting are outlined in the Treasury Board Contracting Policy, which can be found at:

The objective of government procurement contracting is to acquire goods and services, including construction services, in a manner that enhances access, competition and fairness and results in best value to Canada.
