Professional services

Notice is given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal made a determination (File PR-2022-033) on December 21, 2022, with respect to a complaint filed by Eight Bells Consulting Services Incorporated (EBCSI), of Ottawa, Ontario, pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, concerning a procurement (Solicitation 24062-22-363) by the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS). The solicitation was for the provision of three procurement specialists.

EBCSI alleged that TBS did not fully articulate the description of the requirement in the notice of proposed procurement, did not provide any specifics on the limitations to the number of suppliers and the associated criteria for limiting the number of suppliers, and excluded EBCSI from consideration in the present solicitation by not providing it sufficient time to qualify under the request for supply arrangement solicitation.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of various trade agreements, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was valid in part.

Further information may be obtained from the Registry, 613‑993‑3595 (telephone), (email).
