The specific details of the reporting requirements and the manner in which data will be provided are still being worked out by the provincial government. However, we do know that annually organizations will be required to report on the number and aggregate value of the contracts (open and non-competitive) for goods, services and construction conducted above the trade agreement thresholds.
For the past five (5) years, on an annual basis OECM has provided client members in the education sector with collaborative spend data on each OECM agreement in which they participate. OECM can also provide other BPS entities utilizing the agreements with their collaborative spend data, upon request.
The Province has indicated that it expects to start collection and reporting on the first set of data in 2018. Once reporting details are finalized, OECM will assist client members with reporting requirements related to OECM agreement use.
