    This solicitation is seeking development and support services on an as-and-when required basis to support I&O operational activities and projects, as well as related initiatives. The primary service role will be supporting the desktop environment and directory services.


    Only selected TBIPS SA Holders currently holding a TBIPS SA for Tier 1 and subject to PSAB policy in the National Capital Region under the EN578-170432 series of SAs are invited to compete.

    SA Holders may not submit a bid in response to this bid solicitation unless they have been invited to do so. However, should an uninvited SA Holder wish to be invited, it may contact the Contracting Authority to request an invitation at any time prior to five (5) business days before the published bid closing date, and an invitation will be made to that SA Holder unless it would not be consistent with the efficient operation of the procurement system (e.g. PSAB, Safeguards Security Requirements, etc.). In no circumstance will such an invitation require Canada to extend a bid closing date. Where additional invitations are made during the bid solicitation process, it may be that they are not reflected in a solicitation amendment.
