Service interruption to services

The Government of Canada wants to help small and medium businesses sell to the government.

The Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME), as part of Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), is here to make it easier for smaller businesses to bid on federal contracting opportunities.

We do that by:

  • Finding out what stops them from submitting a bid;
  • Advising government buyers and policy-makers on the concerns of small and medium businesses; and by,
  • Suggesting ways to make tools and processes better so that it’s easier for smaller businesses to compete for contracts.

How can the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises help you?

OSME can help you to better understand how the government buys goods and services, and how you can navigate the process to find opportunities.
