Could you please share this opportunity with your network and invite representatives from your organization and your small and micro members to attend a webinar this Wednesday February 16th to learn more?

NEW: Exclusive Solicitation targeting Micro and Small Businesses owned or led by under-represented groups or Indigenous business.

Shared Services Canada, through its ScaleUp pilot project in collaboration with TECHNATION, is seeking an Automated Bidding Solution which would allow vendors to enter and submit a bid on their phone. This is a game-changer when it comes to procurement!

We would appreciate if you would share with your small and micro members!

 

Tech Challenge Overview

The Government of Canada currently lacks the ability to automate the production and submission of tender documents. SSC is seeking a solution that allows Bidders to enter and submit a bid from a smart enabled device.

This is a set-aside, targeting micro and small businesses that are owned or led by under-represented groups or are an Indigenous business. SSC intends to award up to 4 contracts for up to $20K each for the first Prototype of an Automated Bidding Solution.
