    Refresh - Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA)
    Various Aircraft Parts, Transport Canada (TC) 
    In June 2016, Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) in collaboration with Transport Canada (TC) implemented a new method of supply called Supply Arrangement (SA) to acquire various aircraft spare parts for TC Aircraft fleets:  Cessna Citation 550, Challenger series, Dash 7/8, King Air C90A, Bell 206B, Bell 206L1, Bell 212, Bell 407, Bell 412 EPI and Bell 429. There are two stages to the SA:
    Stage 1 is the Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA) that results in the issuance of a SA to supplier(s) and the creation of a SA Holder List.  For Stage 1, a competitive RFSA is posted to the Government Electronic Tendering System (GETS) with information regarding the requirements.  Suppliers are requested to submit an offer that meets the mandatory requirements of the RFSA.  An evaluation of the arrangements is completed and the responsive supplier(s) are issued a SA for goods to be supplied as required.  All responsive suppliers are included on the SA Holders list.
    Stage 2 is the Request for Proposal (RFP) to SA Holders and may result in the issue of a Contract, for specific products to be delivered to the designated location.  For Stage 2, in accordance with the SA issued in Stage 1, a RFP is sent to one or more suppliers on the SA Holder list depending on the dollar value and the nature of the requirement.  Based on the evaluation procedures and basis of selection outlined in the individual RFP, a resulting Contract can be awarded.  
    The current pool of prequalified suppliers is composed of 36 companies located across Canada and the United States.
    The purpose of this NPP is to provide the opportunity for on-going qualification.  This is an opportunity for suppliers who are interested in responding to individual bid solicitations to submit their application to become a pre-qualified supplier.  The list of prequalified suppliers will be used as a source list for the procurement of various aircraft parts for TC.  
    Please be advised that suppliers already prequalified do not have to respond to this Refresh-Request for Supply Arrangement unless they wish to withdraw their SA.
    Below is the current list of the prequalified suppliers:
