The Government of Canada is committed to greening its supply chain. Public Works and Government Services of Canada (PWGSC) is currently gathering information so that it can consider appropriate environmental evaluation criteria and/or contractual requirements for future software procurements by the Government.

Consequently, it is seeking input via a Request for Information (RFI)on software procurement requirements to assist the Government in achieving its green policy. This RFI contains questions related to green procurement for software including whether software suppliers could meet certification requirements such as ISO 14001 or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). It also requests information on environmental programs implemented by suppliers, as well as in their data centres and supply chains.

This RFI can be found in the Letter of Interest. To see the Letter of Interest, click here for English or French.
