Contracting with the NCC
The NCC contracts out in accordance with the Government Contracts Regulations, other applicable regulations, and the NCC Corporate Administrative Policy and Procedures (CAPPS) regarding procurement services.
We are also subject to:
- AIT (Agreement on Internal Trade)
- NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement)
- CCFTA (Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement)
- CPFTA (Canada-Peru Free Trade Agreement)
All NCC contracts that are subject to these trade agreements can be found on MERX, the official federal government electronic tendering system.
The NCC maintains and uses its own supplier source lists to solicit bids for smaller contracts. In addition, internal delegated buyers have the authority to purchase various items (including making purchases by acquisition cards). About 92% of all contracts issued by the NCC are below $25,000 in value.
