Revamped Website: the Office of the Procurement Ombudsman Providing Better Services to Canadian Businesses

Ottawa, May 6, 2013 — The Office of the Procurement Ombudsman (OPO) is proud to announce the launch of its revamped website, including new features to better serve Canadian businesses.

In addition to revising the site to meet the Government of Canada's new usability standards, OPO has made it more user-friendly by reorganising the information and adding new features and content. OPO's primary goal was to create a one-stop shop for the information needs of OPO stakeholders.

New additions to the website include:

  • Relevant information such as:
    • “Did you know?” facts and anecdotes on federal procurement
    • “What to expect” when you've filed a complaint with OPO or when your federal organisation is being reviewed
    • “Good practices” in federal procurement identified in OPO reports and publications
    • OPO Helps Stories” which give practical examples of the ways our Office supports stakeholders
  • More interactive ways to engage with OPO including online forms to:
    • share your thoughts on federal procurement
    • provide your feedback on OPO Services
    • invite OPO to your event

These enhancements are part of OPO's commitment to provide Canadian businesses with easier access to OPO's services, activities and initiatives.

Since websites are continually evolving, OPO is asking for feedback from all website users to make the site even more helpful. This can easily be done through the new online feedback form found at: Give us Feedback on OPO Services.

We hope you enjoy the new website!
