    Description

    REQUIREMENT

    Statistics Canada (StatCan) is seeking one (1) contractor to provide pre-dialing services.

    The principal objective of this project is to identify telephone numbers that are not in service and so can be removed from the sample before it is sent to the field, thereby improving the hit rate of the sample that is sent, which in turn will lead to efficiencies in the field collection activities.

    Trade Agreements

    The requirement is subject to the provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement.

    Language

    This Statistics Canada office provides procurement services to the public in their official languages.

    CONDITIONS OF THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP)

    There shall be no direct payment by Statistics Canada for costs incurred for the presentation and submission of proposals in response to this RFP.

    ESTIMATED CONTRACT PERIOD

    The contract will be awarded for one (1) year plus an additional three (3) one (1) year option periods.

    OPTION TO EXTEND CONTRACT

    The Contractor grants to Canada the irrevocable option to extend the term of the Contract by up to three (3) additional one (1) year periods under the same conditions. The Contractor agrees that, during the extended period of the Contract, it will be paid in accordance with the applicable provisions as set out in the Basis of Payment.

    Canada may exercise this option at any time by sending a written notice to the Contractor at any time before the expiry date of the Contract. The option may only be exercised by the Contracting Authority, and will be evidenced for administrative purposes only, through a contract amendment.
