    Notice of Proposed Procurement (NPP) - W8485-184741/C
    In March 2018, Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), on behalf of the Department of National Defence (DND), has launched a Pilot Project (PP) to establish a Supply Arrangement (SA) for the acquisition of Aviation Replacement Parts for the Twin Otter and the Buffalo. The purpose of the SA was to provide DND with a method of supply within the framework of the Government Contract Regulations that would streamline and expedite the procurement process of aircraft spare parts.
    The proposed method of supply exceeded DND’s expectations and has proven to be a valuable tool for the organization. The prequalification of suppliers and the establishment of the basic terms and conditions for a specific range of goods allowed DND to save time and money.  In June 2019, DND requested that PSPC expand the current PP to a full SA that would include other aircraft fleets.   
    Notice of Proposed Procurement (NPP) - W8485-184741/C

    * already within the SA
    Pre-qualified suppliers can maintain their offer for the Buffalo and Twin Otter or withdraw and/or cancel their arrangement;

    Allow new suppliers to submit bids to become pre-qualified suppliers for this SA.
