Green Procurement Reporting For Departments and Agencies Not Bound by the Federal Sustainable Development Act

Performance Measure RPP DPR
Policy Implementation Status (Optional)  

Strategies / Comments

  1. Approach: The manager Financial and Administrative services has been mandated to address all aspects of the Policy in Green Procurement.
  2. Management Processes and Controls: All procurement over $500 at CFGB is to be approved by the procurement committee. In fiscal year 2011-12, the term of reference of the committee will be reviewed to add environmental considerations in the decision making of the committee. Furthermore, for service transactions the contract preparation form will be updated to include environmental considerations to track green procurement. CFGB continues to support the protection of the environment by having network printers set to duplex by default, by using the RDIMS to classify documents electronically therefore reducing the usage of paper and by reducing travel by using videoconferencing equipment to hold meetings with members outside NCR.
  3. Setting Targets: The CFGB purchases primarily involve office supplies, office furniture and IT equipment. These purchases will continue to be made through the use of PWGSC Standing Offer on products and services that provide best prices, better quality and a green procurement guarantee (e.g. recycled material, environmental performance)
  4. Meeting Targets: Target will be tracked in 2011-12 and reported in the DPR.
  5. Training: CFGB will require for fiscal year 2011-12 that existing functional specialists (1) and credit card holders (3) take the CSPS Course C215 by the end of fiscal year. The department will also require that all new functional specialist or credit card holders take the course within three months of being hired.
  6. Performance evaluation: In fiscal year 2011-12 the manager of Finance and Administrative Services and the functional specialist will have an objective included in their performance management agreement to ensure environmental considerations are taken into account in all procurement activities.
