Disclosure of contracts over $10,000

On March 23, 2004, the Government announced a new policy on the mandatory publication of contracts over $10,000.

This Web site provides information on contracts issued by or on behalf of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Every three months we will be reporting contracts awarded by the institution in the previous three months.

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.

Effective March 23, 2017, the Guidelines on the Proactive Disclosure of Contracts were amended to provide new reporting requirements for departments.

The rules and principles governing government contracting are outlined in the Treasury Board Contracting Policy. 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.

Information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear on this web site.

As of the fourth quarter of 2016–2017, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s disclosure of contracts over $10,000 is published on the Open Government section of canada.ca. Please visit Proactive Disclosure – Contracts over $10,000.
