Abstract

The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) develops government-wide policy and provides guidance on the management of federal assets (i.e., Treasury Board Policy on Management of Real Property), which includes requirements relating to the management of federal contaminated sites. In accordance with policy, TBS also administers the Directory of Federal Real Property (DFRP) and the Federal Contaminated Sites Inventory (FCSI), the latter in which federal organizations are required to report specified data on all known or suspected contaminated sites.

To date, departments, agencies and consolidated Crown corporations have identified and classified over 24,000 contaminated or suspected contaminated sites in urban, rural and remote areas across Canada. The FCSI publicly displays a standard set of basic tombstone about these contaminated sites and annually-updated information for federal contaminated sites.

This presentation will provide a summary of policy requirements related to the management of contaminated sites, information management and reporting requirements for contaminated sites and an overview of the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan.

The objective of this presentation is to provide an overview of the Directive on Government Contracts, Including Real Property Leases, in the Nunavut Settlement Area, including key requirements, and how it will impact the federal government procurement and real property leasing in the Nunavut Settlement Area.

**This presentation will be delivered in French.
Abstract

The Procurement Policy Division, as part of the Office of the Comptroller General in the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS), would like to leverage this Workshop to present on the new Treasury Board Directive on Government Contracts, Including Real Property Leases, in the Nunavut Settlement Area (the Directive), which will have come into effect on December 20, 2019.

Article 24 of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (Nunavut Agreement) includes obligations related to government contracts, including real property leases, in the Nunavut Settlement Area (NSA). In 2006, the Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI), the designated Inuit organization representing the Inuit of Nunavut, brought an action against the Government of Canada on the grounds that the government had failed to meet the terms of the Nunavut Agreement. The litigation was settled out of court in 2015 and included monetary damages and a requirement for the government to develop and implement a Nunavut-specific procurement policy in consultation with NTI.

The Directive is the response to Canada’s obligation to develop a policy instrument for government contracting in the NSA. It implements requirements across the federal government to ensure that support is provided to Inuit firms to enable them to compete for government contracts, including real property leases.

The Directive represents a shift in Canada’s procurement and leasing practices within the NSA. It is imperative that procurement and real property practitioners thoroughly understand the Directive as it prescribes new procedures that may be unfamiliar to them. With remediation is being conducted in the NSA TBS thought it important to disseminate the information to the members of the federal contaminated sites community. This presentation will provide an overview of the Directive, including key requirements, and how it will impact the federal government procurement and real property leasing in the NSA. The tools developed by the Government of Canada to help public servants implement and apply the Directive will also be presented.
