    This RFI is a consultative initiative, led by PWGSC, on behalf of the RCMP, hereafter referred to as Canada. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit industry feedback and to gather commodity expertise and best practices to help inform Canada as it develops its requirements and statement of work for a new Service Pistol and various accompanying ancillaries.
    This RFI is neither a call for tender nor a Request for Proposal (RFP). No agreement or contract will be entered into directly pursuant to this RFI. The issuance of this RFI is not to be considered in any way a commitment by Canada, nor as authority to potential respondents to undertake any work that could be charged to Canada. This RFI is not to be considered as a commitment by Canada to issue a subsequent RFP or award contract(s) for the work described herein.
    Respondents are requested to provide answers and feedback. Participation in this RFI is encouraged, but is not mandatory. There will be no short-listing of potential firms for the purposes of undertaking any future work as a result of this RFI. Similarly, participation in this RFI is not a condition or prerequisite for the participation in any potential subsequent RFP, or other type of solicitation.
    The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to achieve the following:
    a) Provide industry with an early opportunity to assess, comment and suggest changes to the requirement;
    b) Determine the capability of industry to satisfy the requirements;
    c) Request indicative costing information from industry in order to allow Canada to prepare its documents for Project Approval. Industry is asked to provide Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) pricing for as many items as possible.
    d) Obtain industry feedback on any issues that would impact their ability to bid on the resulting
    solicitation and/or deliver on the department’s requirements;
    e) Gather industry knowledge, expertise and recommendations with regard to best practices that would
    increase the success of the solicitation and/or identify any risks that would impact the solicitation;
    f) Enhance competition, access and fairness of the resulting solicitation; and
    g) Inform industry and the government to ensure that the formal RFP process moves forward efficiently
    and has a high probability of success.
