Call-up Limitations

Call-up Limitations for E60EJ-11000C:

All the systems on the National Master Standing Offer (NMSO) are given Call-up Limitation based on its Evaluated Price compared to its competitors Evaluated Price.

The Computer Acquisition Guide (CAG) site generates these Call-up Limitations automatically and are posted on the Pricing and System Configuration page.

Evaluated Price is the weighted average of a system's Price, Performance, Hardware Features, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Features, Environmental Features, and Usability. Not all elements apply to each commodity.

Identified User Call-up Limitations

Identified Users are permitted to place Call-ups for specific systems up to the value shown in this column on the Pricing and System Configuration page. This Call-up value, including taxes and any applicable environmental surcharges, cannot exceed the Call-up Limitation.

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and Shared Services Canada (SSC) Call-up Limitations / Elevated Call-ups

PWGSC and SSC, on behalf of a client, is permitted to to place Call-ups for specific systems up to the value shown in this column on the Pricing and System Configuration page. This Call-up value, including taxes and any applicable environmental surcharges, cannot exceed the Call-up Limitation.

Call-ups placed by PWGSC/SSC are subject to a minimum discount as described by the table below.

Note: Use of these higher Call-up Limitations is optional for the National Master Standing Offer (NMSO) Offerors.

When a volume discount applies to a Call-up, the discount is applied to the current NMSO prices (meaning the NMSO price published on the CAG website on the day of the Call-up). Any applicable disposal surcharges and Goods and Services Tax (GST)/Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) must be added after the discount has been applied.

Requests for Volume Discounts

If the requirement value is more than the PWGSC/SSC Call-up Limitations or the requirement is not necessarily for a specific system and over the Identified User Call-up Limitation, the requirement can be processed by PWGSC as a Request for Volume Discount (RVD). Discounts achieved through the RVD process will exceed those of the Elevated Call-ups. RVD Contracts also give you the opportunity to purchase additional quantities at a low price for a set period and quantity.

Non-standing offer items

Identified Users may incorporate within the Identified User Call-up Limitations up to a total of $5,000.00 of non-Standing Offer items (i.e accessories and components but not systems) on any Call-up.
