  • Delivering transcripts and monitoring notes electronically via email or FTP (file transfer protocol) in a consistent format (either plain text, HTML or a Microsoft Word document) to integrate with Executive Council’s EMMS; and
  • Delivering transcripts to clients within one hour of an order.

The supplier must ensure consents, licenses and rights have been obtained or comply with the Canadian Broadcasters Rights Agency (CBRA) or any other governing body regarding the reproduction of programs or communication signals when sending audio clips, transcripts or monitoring notes, so that the Government of Saskatchewan will be able to use the materials for its purposes without having to obtain the consents, licenses and rights on its own behalf.
