PISA and the NMSO
On Oct 2015, Shared Services Canada (SSC) implemented the Data Center Server and Storage Infrastructure ( DCSSI ) program. This is SSC's initiative to streamline the procurement and provisioning of IT server and storage infrastructure with a vision to standardize and maximize its use.
Through the DCSSI initiative, the Government of Canada has established new Supply Arrangements for the provisioning of Physical IT Server, Storage and Networking infrastructure. The Physical Infrastructure Supply Arrangement (PISA) is the first such Supply Arrangement. Effective Oct 2015, SSC has transitioned all applicable Server, Storage and Networking NMSO callups to PISA Price Book Order Contracts.
Open Storage Solutions Inc. has been an IT supplier to the Government for 39 Years and have held multiple National Master Standing Offers. We are pleased to announce that that we are currently listed on the Dell and Quantum PISA which allows us to Supply Servers, Online Storage, Offline Storage, Networking and Converged Infrastructure IT Products to the Government of Canada Users.
SSC has not yet officially terminated the NMSO and the information below is retained for referance at this time. The contact points are now also valid for PISA enquires.
