Requirements for CNL Contractors
CNL expects to conduct business with safe, competent and capable contractors that will deliver the intended outcomes and provide the best value to CNL over the life of the contract.
“Contractor” means any supplier performing work or services on a CNL site, including consultants or professional services organizations that having more than five staff at a CNL site.
To achieve this objective, CNL has engaged ISNetworld (ISN) to enhance and streamline some of the pre-award and post contract-award processes. ISN is a global leader in supplier information management and supports more than 75,000 contractors and 650 hiring companies like Ontario Power Generation, Bruce Power, Hydro Ottawa, Toronto Hydro, etc. CNL intends to use ISN for the purpose of collection, verification, analysis and reporting of contractor information including; Safety, Quality, Training and Performance Management activities.
Registration with ISN
Contractors who are successful in winning work with CNL will need to register with ISN prior to award of Contract, for which there is a yearly fee.
Unless prescribed differently, in most cases, ISN membership will not be required to submit proposals to CNL. However, CNL does require that Contractors subscribe to ISN, and have the relevant programs validated by ISN upon notification of being a Preferred Proponent.
Details of ISN’s subscription fees can be found on the ISN portal.
Membership in ISN has a number of advantages, not only to CNL, but also to our Contractors, including:

- Reduced administrative burden, resulting in time saving opportunities in the pre-qualification process for hiring clients that use ISN
