    The Department of National Defence (DND) has a requirement for
    the provision of one hundred eighty-five (185) 7.62 MM Light
    Machine Guns plus ancillaries specified under "Proposed Work"
    below. The proposed contract will also include an option to
    purchase up to forty-five (45) additional 7.62 MM Light Machine
    Guns. The purpose of this Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN)
    is to signal the government's intention to award a contract for
    these weapons to FN Herstal. Before awarding a contract,
    however, the government would like to provide other suppliers
    with the opportunity to demonstrate that they are capable of
    satisfying the requirements set out in this Notice, by
    submitting a statement of capabilities during the 15 calendar
    day posting period.
    
    If other potential suppliers submit a statement of capabilities
    during the 15 calendar day posting period that meet the
    requirements set out in the ACAN, the government will proceed to
    a full tendering process on either the government's electronic
    tendering service or through traditional means, in order to
    award the contract.
    
    If no other supplier submits, on or before the closing date, a
    statement of capabilities meeting the requirements set out in
    the ACAN, a contract will be awarded to the pre-selected
    supplier.
