In Public Review

Public review is an essential part of the standards process. The following drafts of standards either in development or undergoing annual maintenance are currently available for review. Leave your comments in the online draft and they will be considered by technical committee responsible.

CAN/CIOSC 108:202X (D3 First Edition), Agile and open procurement of digital solutions

This Standard aims to specify minimum requirements for preparing, developing, and conducting challenge-based, agile and open procurement of digital products and services.

This Standard defines a framework for organizations evaluating the suitability of digital product and service providers using “challenge-based” criteria. This methodology requires organizations sourcing digital, technological, research-based and defence products and services to illustrate desired outcomes rather than issuing prescriptive requirements.

This Standard applies to all organizations, including public and private companies, government entities, and not-for-profit organizations.
