    As part of Canada’s commitment to support its First Nations population, this procurement also aims to provide specific socio-economic benefits to Indigenous People and Indigenous Firms of the Algonquin Nation. To fulfill this objective, the Bidder is strongly encouraged to build an inclusive contracting team by contacting the Algonquin Nation and/or Algonquin companies to discuss and/or secure the participation of Algonquin companies in the work. Contact information for Algonquin communities and organizations is provided with the Advance Notice to Vendors of Planned Procurement for the Environmental Remediation of Victoria Island (Phase 3a), Ottawa, Ontario which was published on on December 20, 2022.

    In the evaluation of bids, proponents will be awarded points for involving Algonquin companies and/or individuals in the project as Prime or subcontractor(s) to deliver trades or services required for the successful completion of the project. The Bidder will be required to specify within its bid the exact dollar value of work as well of the type of work allocated to Algonquin companies (as Prime or subcontractor) in the completion of the scope of work as defined in the specifications.

    A NON-MANDATORY site visit will be held on April 5, 2023 at 10 am Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT). The meeting place will be at 150 Middle Street, Victoria Island, Ottawa, ON
    All costs incurred by the Bidder to attend the site visit will be at their expense. The NCC will not reimburse any Bidder for expenses related to the site visit.

    The active participation of the Algonquin Nation is a very important (but not a mandatory) bidding requirement as part of this project on Victoria Island. All Bidders that pass the mandatory technical criteria will also be evaluated based on proposed Algonquin participation in the project. The Bidder with the best highest value score between lowest compliant price (maximum 85 points) and Algonquin participation (maximum 15 points) will be recommended for contact award.
    The scoring methodology for the tender is as follows:
    The lowest compliant price will receive 85 points. The subsequent Bidders scores will be prorated from the lowest compliant price. These scores will then be added to the points awarded for Algonquin participation to determine Bidders’ final scores.
    Points awarded for Algonquin participation will be evaluated as follows:
    •Bidders are to list the value of work (excluding taxes) assigned to, and to be performed by Algonquin individuals and/or companies (either as Prime or subcontractor) on the tender form in this annex, as well as a brief description of the work to be performed by the Algonquin company or individual(s). Note that costs for disposal of overburden material and supply of select subgrade material are ineligible costs for Algonquin participation and are therefore not included on the tender form in this Annex.
    •The NCC will then sum these dollar values and evaluate the percent participation directly related to Algonquin content.
    •The percent participation directly related to Algonquin content will be calculated as a percentage of the value of the contract (excluding the cost for disposal of overburden material and supply of select subgrade material) to be performed by Algonquin individuals and/or companies (as Prime or subcontractor) prorated out of 15.
    •If an Algonquin-owned firm subcontracts portion(s) of the work to a non-Algonquin firm, they will only receive Algonquin participation points for the portion of work performed by themselves. Work subcontracted to and performed by a non-Algonquin owned company does not qualify as Algonquin participation.
    •In the case of a Joint Venture (JV), at least 51% of the JV must be owned by an Algonquin business, and at least 30% of the total value of the work assigned to the JV must be performed by the Algonquin partner (as identified in the financial proposal).
