This ordering portal is only to be used by government employees who have the authority from their organization (procurement authorities and certain IT groups) to order software products.
If you are ordering cloud based software or Software as a Service (Saas), please submit your request through SSC’s Cloud Brokering Service http://service.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/services/dc/cloud. For traditional software, to start ordering check the requested software title against the WTD Base Software. if the requested title not found under the WTD Base Software, click the SLSA In-Scope Software to select the best described category for the requested software title, please note some of the SLSA categories falls outside SSC's mandate and therefore, if able, please purchase under your departmental authority, and if not, please submit to PSPC.
