    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) has a requirement for a firm quantity of 249,400 rounds of .308 168 gr. General Purpose Ammunition (Military Designation: 7.62 x 51 mm NATO Ammunition).

     The national security exceptions provided for in the trade agreements have been invoked; therefore, this procurement is excluded from all of the obligations of all the trade agreements.

     A sample submission of two hundred fifty (250) rounds will be required for mandatory technical evaluation prior to contract award. Following this, the responsive bid with the lowest total evaluated price will be recommended for award of a contract (1 contract only).

     The Crown reserves the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.

     The Ineligibility and Suspension Policy and integrity clauses are being incorporated in RCMP contracting activities as outlined in this solicitation.

     Bids must be submitted only to Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Bid Receiving Unit by the date, time and place indicated on page 1 of the bid solicitation.

     Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.

     The bid solicitation documents contain all the requirements relating to the bid solicitation. Any other information or documentation provided to or obtained by a bidder from any source are not relevant. Bidders should not assume that practices used under previous contracts will continue, unless they are described in the bid solicitation. Bidders should also not assume that their existing capabilities meet the requirements of the bid solicitation simply because they have met previous requirements. It is the Bidder's responsibility to obtain clarification of the requirements contained in the bid solicitation, if necessary, before submitting a bid.
