Canada Us Procurement Agreement

Since there is a higher threshold for the procurement advantages of companies than for institutions, it is sometimes important to know whether a contact has been offered by a company or body. This issue was considered by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (C.I.T.T.) in Canada (Attorney General) v Symtron Systems Inc. In this case, the Department of Defence of Canada, which is an entity, offered a covered service contract through Defence Construction Canada, a company. The court held that the lower unit threshold should apply, given that the Department of Defense would own the facilities to be built under the contract and that the use of a company to accept bids could be seen as a maneuver to circumvent NAFTA requirements.

The information contained in this article was not immediately confirmed by government officials or provided by other news organizations. However, on February 5, 2010, a number of news organizations indicated that an agreement on Buy American rules would soon be announced. According to Paul Viera of the National Post, in exchange for opening their markets, Canadian suppliers will have access to the government procurement market and will be able to offer on ARRA-funded programs and projects in the thirty-seven states covered by the AGP. However, the provinces will maintain restrictions on foreign health, education and correctional services. While the agreement is limited to ARRA-funded programmes and projects, negotiations for a broader agreement are ongoing. [50] In addition to the Buy American Act, several United States.
