Title or working title of regulatory initiative

Review of the Government Contracts Regulations

Enabling act(s)

Financial Administration Act


Review of regulations to align with evolving legislation, administrative needs or government priorities


The review of these regulations is driven by the need to remove and amend the sections that are out of date in order to reduce the risk of misinterpretation. This review is done on a regular basis. The regulations were amended in 2017 and 2019; the amendments were mostly technical and reactive to stakeholders’ interventions. The current intent is to make similar types of amendments in 2022.
