    Working with Mi’kmaq Office Furniture, we can help departments procure their goods faster via the PSAB Supply Arrangement when the $$ value exceeds $25,000.  The following sections explain how the procurement process is “FAST Tracked” when a department voluntarily makes a procurement an Aboriginal Set-Aside procurement contract. 

    Why Use an Aboriginal Supplier?

    Set-Aside Procurement FAST TRACKED via PWGSC

    The Government of Canada encourages government employees to voluntarily set-aside procurement opportunities to Aboriginal businesses whenever practical. Aboriginal Set-Asides over $25,000 are normally treated as an Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN), thus substantially reducing the time that a procurement opportunity must be advertised on the Buy and Sell website. With competition limited to qualified Aboriginal businesses, the number of questions submitted from vendors for clarification of details is typically a fraction of the 100 plus that get submitted for General Stream SA tenders. For further information on PSAB, please visit the Indian and Northern Affair website.

    Achieve your department’s performance objectives

    Through our partnership with Mi’kmaq Office Furniture & Interiors, federal government department can support the Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Businesses (PSAB) and achieve their department’s established Aboriginal procurement performance objectives.

    All purchases from Mi’kmaq Office Furniture & Interiors are counted towards each department’s performance objectives with respect to contracting done with Aboriginal suppliers.
