Strategies / Comments

  1. Approach: The PMPRB's Director of Corporate Services 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 PMPRB will strike a working group to establish internal policies and strategies on procurement and materiel management and to ensure that environmental considerations are integrated into the procurement and disposal processes.
  3. Setting Targets: In addition to the commitments identified in ii., v., and vi., the Board will ensure that 95% of all purchases are made through PWGSC green consolidated procurement instruments, where available.
  4. Meeting targets: The PMPRB will review these green procurement strategies at mid-year to ensure the Board is on track to achieve them by the end of fiscal year 2011-2012.
  5. Training:
    • The majority of procurement staff have taken the Canada School of Public Service online Green Procurement (C215E) course, and the remainder will take it in 2011-2012. Senior management and their administrative assistants will be encouraged to take this 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, each Chief or Unit Head in Corporate Services Branch with responsibility for procurement will have an objective included in his/her performance management agreement to ensure environmental considerations are taken into account in all procurement activities.
