Why use an Aboriginal Supplier?

Set-Aside Procurement FAST TRACKED via PWGSC

The Government of Canada encourages government employees to voluntarily set-aside procurement opportunities to Aboriginal businesses whenever practical. Aboriginal Set-Asides over $25,000 are normally treated as an Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN), thus substantially reducing the time that a procurement opportunity must be advertised on the Buy and Sell website. With competition limited to qualified Aboriginal businesses, the number of questions submitted from vendors for clarification of details is typically a fraction of the 100 plus that get submitted for General Stream SA tenders.
