At Sussex, during the COVID-19 pandemic we have been providing clients with procurement-related assistance at the Federal and Provincial levels, helping businesses to either acquire PPE supplies or ensure that government has access to their available inventory.
As municipalities assess their resources, direct procurement at this level has begun. The City of Toronto’s “PPE Task Force is responsible for monitoring and allocating the City’s PPE, projecting PPE needs, implementing PPE conservation strategies, and investigating alternative PPE options and procurement strategies.” If this applies to you and your business, get in touch, we can assist by providing a conduit into the Emergency Operations Centre - PPE Task Force, and help you navigate their procurement processes.
Additionally, this afternoon, Mayor John Tory, Medical Officer of Health Eileen de Villa, and Fire Chief and General Manager of the Office of Emergency Management provided updated numbers on the City’s current and projected utilization rates for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Their briefing included a summary of how long the City’s existing PPE supplies will last based on current consumption rates and a hypothetical, worst-case scenario.
For up-to-date information on programs being rolled out for businesses at the federal, provincial, and municipal level across Canada, please visit the Sussex COVID-19 resource page here. This website is updated on an ongoing basis and reflects the newest information available for businesses and organizations.
