    Description

    This amendment is raised to make changes to MTC 1 of the Evaluation Criteria and make changes to the RFSA name from ESDC National Cabling, Dismantling, Installation and Staging Services (CDISS) - Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA) to ESDC National Cabling, Dismantling, Installation, Staging and Repair Services (CDISRS) - Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA). *********************************************************************************
    Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is seeking to create a Supply Arrangement (SA) purchasing tool for prequalifying vendors, contractors and professionals across Canada for services including installation, dismantling, moving and packaging of office furniture, equipment, and cabling of workstations and collaborative areas. Once established, this SA will be used by ESDC’s real property teams across all provinces, territories and regions of Canada to procure services for our Service Canada Centres, Passport Canada offices and back end ESDC general office spaces. These services are being sought through a Supply Arrangement which will start April 1, 2024, and expire when ESDC determines that it is no longer advantageous.

    A Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA) will be issued in accordance with the process set out below to allow new Suppliers to become qualified. Existing qualified Suppliers, who have been issued a supply arrangement, will not be required to submit a new arrangement.
