    Canada reserves the right to modify, change, or terminate, at its sole discretion, any or all of the phases of the Proposed Procurement at any time during the Proposed Procurement period.

    Phase 1 of the Proposed Procurement - Submission of Interest

    To participate in this requirement, Interested Bidders must complete the attached SUBMISSION OF INTEREST form and send it via email to the Contracting Authority. 

    A completed SUBMISSION OF INTEREST form sent via email to the Contracting Authority will be the only accepted means for Interested Bidders to express interest in the requirement. Expression of interest by any other means will not be considered. 

    If any information is missing from the SUBMISSION OF INTEREST form, the Contracting Authority will inform the Interested Bidders of a timeframe within which to provide the information. If the Interested Bidders fail to provide the information within the timeframe, their submission of interest will not be considered.

    Submissions of interest received after the NPP closing date will not be considered.

    Canada will not be responsible for any failure attributable to the transmission or receipt of the submissions of interest.

    Enquiries regarding this Proposed Procurement must be submitted via email to the Contracting Authority no later than seven (7) calendar days before the NPP closing date. Enquiries received after that time may not be answered.

    Canada will accept submissions and enquiries in either official language of Canada.

    Canada is not responsible and will not assume any liabilities whatsoever for the information found on websites of third parties. In the event an NPP would be amended, Canada will not be sending notifications. Canada will post all amendments, including significant enquiries received and their replies, using GETS. It is the sole responsibility of the Interested Bidders to regularly consult GETS for the most up-to-date information. Canada will not be liable for any oversight on the Interested Bidders’ part nor for notification services offered by a third party.

    Indigenous Procurement:

    The federal Indigenous Business Directory (IBD) is an online resource for all levels of government and the private sector to identify Indigenous business capacity. Having a business profile in the IBD will increase your company’s visibility and may provide additional business. A profile in the IBD can also allow you to compete for federal government contracts that are set-aside for Indigenous businesses through the Procurement Strategy for Indigenous Businesses.

    Phase 2 of the Proposed Procurement - Request for Proposal

    All Interested Bidders with a duly completed SUBMISSION OF INTEREST in Phase 1 will receive a copy of the Request for Proposal, the specifications and any other associated documentation (the solicitation package) in Phase 2.

    The Contracting Authority will send the solicitation package, at the same time, directly to the Interested Bidders by email after the NPP closing date.

    Basis of selection: A bid must comply with the requirements of the bid solicitation and meet all mandatory technical criteria to be declared responsive. The responsive bid with the lowest evaluated price will be recommended for award of a contract (1 contract only).
