This Request for Supplier Qualifications (“RFSQ”) is an invitation by the Province of Nova Scotia (the “Province”) on behalf of the Nova Scotia Public Service Commission (“PSC”) to prospective respondents to qualify in accordance with Evaluation of Responses (Part 2) for eligibility to potentially provide Learning and Development Services as further described in the RFSQ Particulars (Appendix B) (the “Deliverables”). This RFSQ is being conducted pursuant to the Nova Scotia Sustainable Procurement Policy and Procurement Manual.

The Nova Scotia Government is committed to developing a highly skilled, diverse and flexible public service to deliver programs and services to the citizens of Nova Scotia.  
To meet this objective, the PSC offers a number of learning and development opportunities to the public service in such topic areas as leadership and management skills, diversity, communication, wellness, and workplace skills. Development may also include assessments and executive leadership coaching.  

In addition to instructor-led opportunities, the Province also seeks online learning approaches to learning and development in these areas to provide the most relevant, accessible and value-added offerings to government employees.  

Under the terms and conditions of the supply arrangement, the selected respondents agree to provide Learning and Development Services on an “as required” basis during the master agreement term. Respondents who submit responses and are awarded a supply arrangement are not guaranteed an offer of work. There is no guarantee that any minimum purchase volumes will be reached through this process.  

The key values we seek to emphasize through this competition are as follows:  
1) A fair, open and transparent competitive process; and  
2) The maximization of competition to drive the best value for money
