GNWT releases workplan for procurement improvements

Press Release

November 14, 2022

The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) has released a workplan that outlines the activities the GNWT will undertake over the next twelve months to improve procurement processes and practices by the end of the 19th Legislative Assembly.

The workplan is separated into key categories:

  • administrative updates that include tasks to make it easier to do business with the GNWT;
  • actions to improve government procurement’s transparency and accountability; and
  • efforts to deliver on increasing the benefits of government procurement for Indigenous and NWT businesses.

The workplan addresses many of the recommendations in the Independent Panel’s report on GNWT procurement policies and practices. Some of the larger policy recommendations have linkages to work being undertaken with Indigenous governments to explore options on the development of Indigenous procurement policy approaches that may enhance opportunities for Indigenous businesses.

This workplan highlights areas of work completed since the start of the 19th Assembly, which include formalizing GNWT’s principles for government procurement. These principles will continue to guide the work of the procurement review.

The workplan is also informed by input received from Indigenous governments and others separate to the Panel’s report. Additionally, the workplan will advance internally identified items to improve administrative processes and address challenges.

As the GNWT continues to advance this work, it will continue to honour its consultation requirements with Modern Treaty and Self-Government partners.

I look forward to this work being completed and creating long-lasting policies and practices that will support the benefits of government procurement for residents and businesses in the NWT.”

-Caroline Wawzonek, Minister of Finance
