The Procurement Advisory Panel looked at ways the current Yukon government procurement model can be improved.
The six-member panel was established in November 2015 and consisted of representatives from the local business community and experts on procurement from other government jurisdictions, with support from representatives from Yukon government’s Department of Highways and Public Works.
May 3, 2016 - the report was tabled in the legislature and the media was provided with a technical briefing(news release)
August 10, 2016 - Yukon government responds to the findings of the Procurement Advisory Panel
In late 2015 and early 2016, the panel sought feedback from the Yukon business community who have experience doing procurement with Yukon government, as well as Yukon government staff.
The input and ideas gathered assisted in the development of recommendations for addressing concerns raised and issues identified.
The Procurement Advisory Panel participated in the Industry Conference February 23 & 24, 2016. The Panel made two presentations: Preliminary Findings and Procurement Complaint Mechanisms – Considerations for (Re) Design.
The Interim Report and Consolidated List of Issues identify the general themes of their findings and provides a summary of the issues raised by vendors, vendor associations, community representatives and government staff, during interviews with the Panel and by way of written input.
