    The period for making call-ups and providing services against the Standing Offer is from date of Standing Offer to March 31, 2023 inclusive.

    If the Standing Offer is authorized for use beyond the initial period, the Offeror offers to extend its offer for an additional two (2) additional one (1) year period(s) being as follows: April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024 inclusive and April 1, 2024 to March 31, 2025 inclusive under the same conditions and at the rates or prices specified in the Standing Offer, or at the rates or prices calculated in accordance with the formula specified in the Standing Offer.


    There are security requirements associated with the requirements of the Standing Offer. For additional information, consult Part 6 – Security, Financial and Insurance Requirements and Part 7 – Standing Offer and Resulting Contract Clauses.

    New personnel security clearance requests will require mandatory fingerprints to initiate the criminal record check. The validity of an existing personnel security clearance issued by the Government of Canada is not affected by the change in the criminal record check process. Applicants who require a personnel security clearance are responsible for all costs associated with fingerprinting.


    All enquiries must be submitted in writing to the Standing Offer Authority no later than seven (7) calendar days before the Request for Standing Offers (RFSO) closing date. Enquiries received after that time MAY NOT be answered.

    Offerors should reference as accurately as possible the numbered item of the RFSO to which the enquiry relates. Care should be taken by Offerors to explain each question in sufficient detail in order to enable Canada to provide an accurate answer. Technical enquiries that are of a proprietary nature must be clearly marked "proprietary" at each relevant item. Items identified as "proprietary" will be treated as such except where Canada determines that the enquiry is not of a proprietary nature. Canada may edit the question(s) or may request that Offerors do so, so that the proprietary nature of the question(s) is eliminated, and the enquiry can be answered to all Offerors. Enquiries not submitted in a form that can be distributed to all Offerors may not be answered by Canada.


    National Parks Regulations require that all work is to be performed in accordance with the ordinances, laws, rules and regulations set out in the National Park Act.

    Offerors that consider themselves qualified to provide this Work and intend to submit offers on this project should obtain documents from the Government Electronic Tendering Service through the Government of Canada tendering service at Addenda, when issued, will be available from the Government of Canada tendering service. Offerors that elect to base their offers on documents obtained from other sources do so at their own risk. Late submissions will not be considered.

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

    Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada. Parks Canada has made every effort to provide equivalent documents in both official languages, however, if you find any discrepancies between the English and French documents, please notify the Standing Offer Authority listed in this opportunity as soon as possible so that we can rectify the situation.
