    Description

    1. Background

    The Department of National Defence (DND) moves materiel and personnel domestically and internationally on an as required basis to support operations. DND accomplishes this task primarily through its own means but also contracts directly with Industry for the movement of personnel and cargo by airlift, and cargo by sea charter or freight forwarding for some multi-modal movements. To contract for transportation requirements that arise, DND maintains multiple Source Lists of pre-qualified service providers and brokers.

    2. Source List Renewal

    DND’s 2016 Transportation Source Lists expire November 18, 2018. As such, DND is soliciting industry applications to renew each of these Source Lists.

    1. Air Passenger Full Charter
      1. Domestic
      2. International
    2. Air Cargo Full Charter
      1. Domestic
      2. International
    3. Freight Forwarding
    4. Ship Charter

    A separate application is required for each Source List. Additionally, Applicants must include details to support which ever sub-grouping they are applying for, whether domestic and/or international.

    3. Validity Period

    DND’s 2018 Transportation Source Lists will remain valid for a two year period, beginning November 19th, 2018. During this timeframe any DND transportation requirements that arise will be issued to the members of the appropriate Source List.

    4. Application Process
