Closing date and time 2016/01/29 14:00 EST




    An Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) allows departments and agencies to post a notice, for no less than fifteen (15) calendar days, indicating to the supplier community that it intends to award a good, service or construction contract to a pre-identified contractor. If no other supplier submits, on or before the closing date, a Statement of Capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, the competitive requirements of the government's contracting policy have been met. Following notification to suppliers not successful in demonstrating that their Statement of Capabilities meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, the contract may then be awarded using the Treasury Board's electronic bidding authorities.

    If other potential suppliers submit Statement of Capabilities during the fifteen calendar day posting period, and meet the requirements set out in the ACAN, the department or agency must proceed to a full tendering process on either the government's electronic tendering service or through traditional means, in order to award the contract.

    Definition of Requirements

    The objective of this work is to provide NRCan with:

    1. The opportunity to make Canadian and USA utilities aware of CanmetENERGY abilities and the services we can provide.
    2. Direct access to technical experts in power utilities across Canada and the USA when there are questions that arise within the department about power generation systems. Some of this is supplied to policy related groups within the department.
    3. Opportunities to hear utility plans and concerns before these issues ever become public knowledge. This information is used within our planning processes.
    4. Direction on power generation R&D direction for the department.
    5. Seminars where attendees get training and information on power generation industry trends.
    6. Access to reports from cooperative research reports.
    7. Opportunity to attend tours of plants and operations that are of interest to the power generation industry where participants can see first-hand developments within that sector.
