GATINEAU, QC: Two Government of Canada departments will use the OPROMA System cloud-based service to centralize the management, control and audit of their public infrastructure projects. Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) have recently awarded competitive, multi-year contracts to Gatineau-based technology company Oproma. The web technology is designed to help the departments deliver projects in Canada and abroad.

Oproma was awarded a one year (with four additional one-year periods) contract for an online solution for the management of real property project information for PWGSC’s real property branch. Valued at $1 million for the first year, this software-as-a-service will allow the department to exchange property project documents while complying with confidentiality rules and requirements. The OPROMA System allows centralized and secure online collaboration of PWGSC staff with external stakeholders.

DFAIT has awarded Oproma, also through public tender, with a two-year contract with a value of up to $1.5 million, including three one-year extension options. DFAIT’s project implementation services facilitates overseas projects through a cloud-based collaboration system available to external contractors and other parties. DFAIT already uses the OPROMA System to manage several projects around the world.
