Saskatchewan is implementing the following two-stage process to: 1) gather information about the current infrastructure demand in our province and further develop program criteria; and 2) to plan and prepare for a full, more detailed application intake.
Stage 1. Expression of Interest (EOI)
EOIs accepted from Friday, March 15, 2019 until 4:30 p.m. CST on Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
The EOI requests information about your project’s priority, planning and outcomes. Although this is a short timeline, applicants that have active asset management plans should be well-positioned to provide the required basic information in the simplified form.
Submit an EOI for all projects that you consider a priority and that you would be prepared to start in the next five years (2019-2024). There is no limit on the number of EOIs that you can submit. However, you must submit a separate EOI for each project and you will be asked to prioritize your project submissions. Participation in the EOI is strongly recommended and will be a consideration in the rating and assessment of full, more detailed ICIP applications (see Stage 2).
Please note: the EOI is NOT an application for funding. However, based on the EOI information received, some projects may be identified to complete a detailed application for immediate funding consideration.
Stage 2. Full, More Detailed ICIP Application Intake
A full, more detailed application intake is expected in late 2019. It will follow a similar process to application intakes under previous federal-provincial programs.
However, the full, more detailed ICIP application will require more information and project planning than previous federal-provincial applications. Therefore, the full, more detailed ICIP application intake will be open for an extended period (months not weeks) to allow applicants time to prepare for these additional requirements.
Details on the full, more detailed ICIP application intake will be available later in 2019, well in advance of that stage. A full application guide including project rating criteria to assist with project planning and application development will be provided.
