Part of CMC-Canada's national strategy is to assertively lobby the federal government to recognize the Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation as a desired qualification in bidding on consulting opportunities. CMC-Canada provides its members with information on changes to legislation and other government initiatives as they occur. Also, CMC-Canada is frequently asked to provide feedback to Canadian government committees on issues related to both procurement of professional services, and the management consulting profession.
NEW: CMC-CANADA RESPONSE: STANDING COMMITTEE ON GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS AND ESTIMATES
February 9, 2023
The House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates proceedings have recently raised questions about the propriety of the government’s procurement process, the government’s use of consultants generally, and whether consultants seeking government contracts are concerned with protecting the public’s interest.

The NAC has taken an active role in defining and driving its agenda to promote the CMC designation through a ‘position paper approach’ to advocacy.

This fall, Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) took an important step forward in modernizing procurement by moving to a cloud-based platform. CanadaBuys has now replaced Buyandsell as the official source for tender and award notices for the Government of Canada and the broader Canadian public sector.
This means all new tender opportunities are posted on CanadaBuys, and the tender search function is no longer active on Buyandsell. Over the coming months, content and features on Buyandsell will be migrated to CanadaBuys in stages.
If you haven’t already done so, please register your business for a free SAP Ariba account, and complete a company profile to view full tender details and bid on tender opportunities posted on CanadaBuys.
The CanadaBuys Service Desk is available for technical support when registering for an account.
