The acquisition of goods and services follow five key principles, accountability, transparency, value for money, quality service delivery and process standardization.
Based on the purpose of the acquired goods and services, the OACCAC procurement activities are split into two distinct categories: Client Services and Corporate Services.
CCAC procurement of client services
The OACCAC coordinates a provincial process on behalf of CCACs to help streamline the process of identifying and monitoring the service provider organizations that CCACs partner with.
Registry of qualified service providers
All service providers who provide care or related services through the CCAC must first complete a service provider pre-qualification process. The OACCAC issues a Request for Prequalification notice twice a year – June and December, which is published on MERX for the benefit of new entrants. The OACCAC publishes the resulting list of successful applicants every August and February.
