Sorry to tell you this sford but Canadian Govenrment year end is end of Mar. Money usually starts freeing up at mid Jan and then you only a limited time to purchase through Public Works, unless you have a Standing Offer or call up which ROI has. Just so you don't get confused. I wouldn't ant misinformation to be posted. If you are confused go back and check our news announcements about SOA and also do a search on Government Purchasing Regulations and PWGSC contracting. Jim (I don't have to say jmo on that one)
