Justification for the Pre-Selected Supplier
It has been determined that Adura Strategy is the only known Canadian supplier (licensed PUMP Partner) that is capable of successfully performing the work with their proven PuMP methodology. There are no alternate sources of supply within Canada that provide the relevant experience and resources to meet the requirements and deliverables at this time.
Adura Strategy regularly facilitates these workshops throughout the year across Canada. They will teach the PuMP 8 step methodology to help redesign our performance measurement process and make our strategies more measureable. They offer public sessions as well, but at $3450 per person, it is more cost effective to organize a private in-house session.
The specialized services required for this project can take place during the period between the contract award date up to March 31, 2020.
Estimated Contract Value
The estimated total value of the contract is $70,875 inclusive of applicable taxes.
