Strategies / Comments

  1. Approach: The HMIRC's Director of Financial Policy and Operations is responsible for addressing all aspects of the Policy on Green Procurement.

  2. Management Processes and Controls:
    • In 2011-2012, all contracting documents will be reviewed to include a clause addressing environmental considerations in the performance of the work required.
    • The HMIRC procurement and material management specialists will review internal procurement policies and strategies to ensure environmental considerations are included into the procurement and disposal process.
  3. Setting Targets: The HMIRC will ensure that 50% of all purchases are made through PWGSC green consolidated instruments, where available. This is the HMIRC's first year applying a green procurement strategy and will use this year to get abase line to measure against. Next year the HMIRC will review and adjust targets as needed.

  4. Meeting Targets: The green procurement strategies established will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that the HMIRC is successful in their achievement by end of fiscal year 2011-2012.

  5. Training:
    • All procurement specialists at the HMIRC will take the Canada School of Public Service online Green Procurement (C215E) course.
    • Senior management will also increase staff awareness of environmental issues, such as limiting the number of printed copies of documents to only what is necessary and using two-sided printing and copying where feasible.
  6. Performance Evaluations: In 2011-2012 the Director Financial Policy and Operations, as the responsible individual for green procurement, will have an objective included in his performance agreement to ensure environmental considerations are taken into account in all procurement activities.
