  • 2. Requisition ReceiptAnnex 3.7: Matrix of Responsibilities between PWGSC and Client Departments for the Procurement of Goods and Services (Generic)(2008-12-12)Introduction1. The following matrix provides a generic division of anticipated types of responsibilities between Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and client departments. It forms the basis for an effective and efficient partnering relationship for those who are responsible for activities within the contracting process.2. The division of responsibilities as shown in the matrix represents a standard way of doing business. However, as every procurement and associated contract differs, alternate divisions of roles and responsibilities can be established in advance by way of a written agreement between PWGSC and the client department. Such client department or procurement-specific arrangements or matrices will take precedence over this generic matrix. Legislation, regulations and policy will also take precedence over this matrix.3. Regular communication between PWGSC and the client department is considered essential to success in all activities, even for those activities where no contributing role is indicated within the matrix.NOTE: The matrix does not represent a delegation of procurement authority by the Minister of PWGSC, and does not remove from contracting officers their overall contracting responsibilities.Supply Manual Annex 3.7-1Version 08-2
