Our Shared Services Canada (SSC) Forum was created for executives to access briefing materials, share information and provide guidance on matters relating to the mission, mandate and operations of Shared Services Canada (SSC).
The SSC Forum is a subgroup of CATAAlliance, and now comprises some 1200 members from across Canada, representing both small and large enterprises, as well as thought leaders from the public and private sectors. It is a rich peer group resource in its own right.
As part of utilizing this resource, we schedule regular Teleforum Conference calls to facilitate the sharing of members’ collective insights and research in areas of government restructuring and procurement.
Please join a group of your colleagues on Tuesday, December 18th at 11 am EST for our next Teleforum Conference Call. Moderated by CATA CEO, John Reid, the Call will feature Forum experts, including regulatory legal counsel, who through an interview format will engage us in information sharing, critical alerts and updates on the activities of Shared Services Canada and related Ministries.
The focus of the Teleforum is “Myths and Mystery, Exploring Sourcing Options for SSC.” Prior to the call please review our prepared Executive Briefing Note for background and context.
Participating in the call to share insights, guidance and help respond to questions will be lead speaker and regulatory expert, David Fraser, Partner, Mcinness Coopers (see bio below), and select Panel members, including, John Cousens, Salesforce.com, and Steve Woodward, Cloud Perspectives. We are also inviting select government officials and industry experts to assist with the Q&A portion of the Call.
The Teleforum Conference Call (of particular interest to companies currently selling or planning to sell goods and services to the federal government) is a uniquely interactive meeting of invitation-only executives who will also be invited to related venues to extend the information sharing, access to briefing material and encourage peer exchanges.
