Engineers Canada issues RFP for new national membership database solution

2020.10.16

Engineers Canada has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for a new solution to facilitate inter-association engineering licensure by allowing provincial and territorial engineering regulators to share information about their licence holders.

The goals of this project are to:

  • Ensure and demonstrate data security and compliance with provincial and territorial privacy laws;
  • Improve service to regulator clients with a specific focus on improving the user experience for regulator staff, and ensuring regulators have control of their own data;
  • Improve the effectiveness and efficiency of regulator staff and Engineers Canada personnel; and
  • Support the short-term and long-term goals for viability of information technology.

The business objectives of the National Membership Database (NMDB) solution are as follows:

  • Deliver accurate and current information on license holders of the 12 engineering regulators;
  • Provide enough information for regulators to confirm the standing of applicants who are already licensed by another Canadian engineering regulator;
  • Provide an upload/import feature for each regulator to provide their information on license holders;
  • Minimize engineering regulator staff time required to upload and search for information in the NMDB; and
  • Permit engineering regulators to manage their own database users.

Engineers Canada asks for all responses to be submitted by 1:00 pm ET on November 6, 2020.
