Canadian Collaborative Procurement Initiative

What is the Canadian Collaborative Procurement Initiative (CCPI)?

Manitoba has joined other provinces and territories in signing an agreement with Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), which will enable Manitoba to use specific federal procurement tools to procure goods and services. This will allow Manitoba to leverage the combined spending power of public sector entities across Canada. By using collaborative federal procurement tools to purchase certain commodities, buyers from provinces and territories can benefit from rates negotiated by the Government of Canada, streamline their procurement efforts and reduce their administrative and legal costs.


Thanks to this collaboration with their counterparts, buyers can also share knowledge and best practices on a range of commodities. The collaborative procurement initiative allows Manitoba to maximize value for money and become smarter shoppers.
