    Summary

    1. The purpose of this requirement is to establish a list of pre-qualified vessels and vessel charters capable of performing at-sea projects / missions as they relate to different ocean science operations (e.g. oceanography, marine mammal studies, hydrography, etc.) and fisheries science (e.g., stock assessment, biodiversity, habitat management, etc.). The projects / missions at-sea will vary in requirements as they relate to different ocean and fishery operations. The requirements for vessel and vessel charters will also vary depending on the location of the projects / mission(s) (e.g. Atlantic, Pacific, Central and Arctic regions) including both near-shore and offshore missions within Canadian waters as the need arises.
    2. The Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA) is to establish supply arrangements for the delivery of the requirement detailed in the RFSA to the Identified Users across Canada, including areas subject to Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements (CLCAs).

    A Supply Arrangement is established by prequalifying a vessel using our categorization document on the Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA).

    • Availability for multiple field programs ranging from 1 to 265 days annually with options for multiple years
    • Ability to perform a variety of oceanographic operations

    • Ability to support up to 20 science crew for several weeks at a time
    • Ability to catch and allow for processing of large quantities of fish of various species
    • Ability to stay at sea for extended periods (weeks to months) at a time
