Ministry of Children Services and Alberta Community and Social Services - Pre-Qualified Service Provider

 

New opportunity to become a Pre-Qualified Service Provider for the Ministry of Children Services and Alberta Community and Social Services

 

PQR stands for Pre-Qualified Resource List of pre-qualified service providers. The primary objective of a PQR is to ensure fair, transparent and open access to qualified service providers so that Albertans can receive the services and supports they need. It is an opportunity for service providers to become qualified (be put on a resource list) for future contracting work.

The use of PQR lists is considered good business practice, and is also a requirement under the Government of Alberta’s Treasury Board directive on sole-source procurement.

 

The best way to ensure you can contract with Children’s Services (“Ministry”) and/or Alberta Community and Social Services (“Ministry”)for the scope of work covered in the PQRs is to get on the PQR list. The PQR list is the starting point for a Region in determining who would best be able to provide the services required in a particular instance.

 

Alberta Children’s Services (“Ministry”) and Alberta Community and Social Services (“Ministry”) works collaboratively with government, community, partners, and stakeholders to improve the quality of life for Albertans through delivery of respectful, adaptive supports and innovative, prevention-focused programs and policies. The Ministry strives to ensure that Albertans are supported – that they have the resources and skills to optimize their quality of life, that they are protected and safe in their homes and communities, and that they are enabled and empowered to be successful.

 

The Resource Lists may be used to call for proposals and/or to award contracts without further competition. A separate Request for Proposals (RFP) may be advertised for specialized services. In this PQR, Proponents are to identify Service Categories that they want to qualify for and the respective Service Delivery Regions of the Ministry in which they want to qualify to provide those services. A resource list of Qualified Service Providers will be generated following the evaluation of submissions.

 

Closing date: October 13, 2017

 

A single form is used to submit for all PQRs – you will enter in your proponent information once and then the PQR-specific information for the PQRs you wish to submit to.
