Unpacking Prequalification and Bidder Debarring

The CFTA and CETA have introduced new rules around pre-qualification. Do you understand the differences between the two sets of requirements? Is pre-qualification the same a setting up a Standing Offer or Corporate Supply Arrangement? When and how can you effectively bar poorly-performing vendors from bidding without running afoul of trade agreements and other obligations? How long should that debarment remain in place? Can you extend debarment to officers and directors of those companies? What are the legal and practical risks of getting it wrong?

If any of these questions resonate with you then join us for an interactive eSeminar to explore the nuances of the various rules, requirements and implications of improper practices in this increasingly complex area of procurement. Avoid expending valuable resources on lengthy and often public challenges to your processes and learn how to become an ‘owner of choice’ by conducting fair, effective and value driven procurements that allow you to reward the best players and minimize your reliance on marginal performers.
