    Light Tactical Vehicle - RFI
    Patrick Scalabrini
    Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is requesting Industry’s feedback regarding the Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV) procurement for the Government of Canada (GC), the Department of National Defence (DND), and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).
    In support of Canada’s contribution to NATO Advanced Force Projection (aFP) in Latvia, as part of Operation REASSURANCE, Canada will procure Tactical Mobility Platform vehicles (TMPs) to equip a deployed Light Forces (LF) Battle Group (BG) starting Fall 2024. This accelerated procurement is named Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV).
    As part of a review in support of the Adaptive Dispersed Operations concept, the Canadian Light Forces (LF) need new light tactical personnel and cargo carrying capabilities.  These capabilities will move soldiers and equipment across complex terrain which currently can only be reached on foot.  It will lighten CAF soldiers’ on-person combat burden by carrying additional equipment and supplies, and will cover a larger area of operation through increased speed, range, and duration.  This powerful, lightweight solution is expected to operate in domestic and expeditionary deployments, up to and including high threat environments. 
    The objectives of RFI/A are:
    a) To assess if the delivery time constraints can be met; 
    b) To assess the product and performance specifications of the available solutions based on time constraints. 
    c) To develop a shared understanding with Industry about the LTV requirement;
    d) To provide information to Industry and seek their feedback on LTV operational and sustainment requirements, delivery capacity, delivery timelines and costing; and
    e) To allow interested suppliers to express their ideas, ask questions, and voice their concerns.
    All enquiries and other communications related to this RFI and associated Industry Engagement activities, must be directed exclusively to the Public Services and Procurement Canada Contracting Authority, using the LTV e-mail address
    Delivery Date: 17/11/2023
    The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.
    Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
