The Treaty Compliance: Rebooting Public Sector Procurement seminar covers recent trade treaty developments flowing out of the new Canadian Free Trade Agreement and Canada-Europe Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement that came into force in 2017.

These changes are more comprehensive than anything we’ve seen over the last 25 years. Will you be ready?

This seminar is essential training for procurement professionals practicing in the public sector and covers the following topics:

(1) open and fair competition;

(2) anti-avoidance rules and exemptions;

(3) the new bid dispute regime;

(4) the CITT as a case study in treaty enforcement and in interpreting the treaty requirements. 

This seminar will provide practical recommendations on how to deal with key change areas with a special focus on how the new treaties rules impact posting requirements, debriefings, bidder pre-qualifications and framework agreements, and evaluation record keeping.
