The service provider will apply GC security standards and all operational activities will be performed within Canada by Canadian citizens and all infrastructures will reside in Canada. Canada may invoke a National Security Exception (NSE) for any future procurement.

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to better understand industry capabilities and maturity levels that a service provider can provide in the context of interoperability involving Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) concepts and principles. The RFI will be used to clarify GCIP draft requirements and inform a potential procurement. Should Canada decide to proceed, information gathered through this RFI may be used in upcoming phases of this procurement process, including development of a business case to analyze the cost, benefits, and risks of the service.

The service supplier will not be involved with or be responsible for business or process transformation. The GC will be responsible for the enterprise architecture (EA) with participation from the service provider. The service provider will work with the GC business owners to render enterprise applications interoperable with the GCIP. It is expected that all procurement activities and the transition to the service provider will be complete within 1 year of contract award.

The goals of this RFI are to:

  1. Gather specific information related to options for a GC Interoperability Platform (GCIP) that will be managed by a vendor(s) as a service.
  2. Gather information on future options for interoperability up to and including the cloud.

Throughout this document there will be frequent references to the GCIP Architecture Vision found below in Figure 1. Where possible, suppliers should reference it within their responses. The GC has provided potential options and is open to vendor input on different options (refer to Section 5.2).

Les biens immobiliers de la transformation des gestionnaires de projet

Foreign Affairs, Trade And Development (Department Of) | Published January 18, 2017  -  Deadline February 2, 2017

On May 29, 2014, a decision was taken by Treasury Board (TB) to undertake an Independent Third Party Review of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) real property function. A consultant was retained to undertake this work. A report with nine (9) recommendations was completed in May 2015. A related work plan was developed with nine (9) intervention streams and is being implemented since fall 2015. However, additional transformational interventions are required to reinforce real property management some of which include an information technology (IT) dimension.

Real property management is done with help from a division (IT Services) which oversees the maintenance of portfolio supporting applications. These applications are offered on a wide variety of technologies, but have been, over time, consolidating to a single Standard Query Language (SQL) backend database and Component Scalable Logical Architecture (CSLA) Data Portal to serve data to applications. All new applications are being developed with these technologies. This work requires collaboration with the departmental IM-IT Bureau.

IT maintenance mostly takes the form of overseeing custom built and supported software. Some of these applications are at end of life and can no longer be supported. Furthermore, others function in isolation; data sharing with each other or the GAC corporate data warehouse is also often insufficient. 

As part of the efforts to transform the real property function, several business processes are being reviewed or must be added or redesigned for the purpose of improving performance. This optimization will enable the organization to be more efficient and more effective. Redesign of business processes includes both a work dimension and a technological dimension.

  • Bidders must submit a bid for all three (3) Project Manager resources

  • The work is currently being performed by Randstad under contract for a value of $469,913.00
