    Description
    The Department of Canadian Heritage wishes to retain the services of a specialized firm for the provision of Canadian and world news service. The purpose of this Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) is to signal the government’s intention to award a contract for these services to The Canadian Press, 215 St-Jacques Street, Montreal, Quebec, H2Y 1M6.  Before awarding a contract, however, the government would like to provide suppliers with the opportunity to demonstrate that they are capable of satisfying the requirements set out in this notice, by submitting a statement of capabilities during the 15 calendar day posting period.
    
    If other potential suppliers submit a statement of capabilities during the 15 calendar day posting period that meet the requirements set out in the ACAN, the government will proceed to a full tendering process on either the government's electronic tendering service or through traditional means, in order to award the contract.
    
    If no other supplier submits, on or before the closing date, a statement of capabilities meeting the requirements set out in the ACAN, a contract will be awarded to the pre-selected supplier.
