    Through this Request for Standing Offers (RFSO), the Department
    of Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is
    looking to establish a maximum of three (3) Departmental
    Individual Standing Offers (DISOs) for Public Notice Services,
    which could be used for advertising campaigns estimated at up to
    $100,000.00 (excluding GST/HST).
    The GC typically uses public notices to alert Canadians to
    changes in regulations and for health advisories. The GC also
    uses public notices for routine business such as public
    hearings, offers of employment, notices of public consultation,
    or changes to business hours. These types of public notices are
    typically on matters of local or regional interest but can also
    be national in scope.
    This request for standing offer for national advertising
    services is one of a series of solicitations to estabish various
    procurement instruments for the provision of advertisng
    services. The other solicitations that compliment this
    solicitation are:
    EP361-130010/A Request for Standing Offer for advertising
    creative services with ten (10) different Offerors to be used
    for requirements valued up to $200,000 (excluding GST/HST);
    EP361-130020/A Request for Supply Arrangement for advertising
    services to establish arrrangements with qualified suppliers for
    advertising requirements;
    EP361-130030/A Request for Standing Offer for aboriginal
    set-aside advertising services for requirements valued up to
    $350,000 (excluding GST/HST). This solicitation will be
    published at a later date;
    EP361-130050/A Request for Standing Offer for Digital-only
    advertising services with four (4) different Offerors to be used
    for requirements valued up to $350,000 (excluding GST/HST). This
    solicitation will be published at a later date.
    Suppliers can submit offers/arrangements for all of the above
    types of procurement tools as long as they meet the requirements
    set out in each solicitation document.
    Canadian Content Policy - The requirement is limited to Canadian
    goods and/or services.
    Trade Agreements - This procurement is not subject to any trade
    Note to Offerors
    Offerors are reminded that in order to ensure a clear
    delineation between the GC's media buying agency (contract no.
    EP361-091572/001/CZ) and the GC's creative and planning
    agencies, an exclusivity clause presently forms part of the
    media buying agency contract.  The media buying agency, and as
    applicable, its parent company, its subsidiaries corporation,
    and any body corporate of the Contractor's immediate family will
    not be eligible to bid on other GC procurement contracts
    relating to advertising.  The resulting Standing Offers fall
    under this exclusivity provision as business related to
    advertising.  Further, any subcontractor proposed by an offeror
    on the RFSO will be bound by the same terms and conditions as
    the offeror.
    Canada reserves the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
    Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
    Evaluation Process
    Bidders MUST meet all the mandatory requirements of the RFSO. 
    No further consideration will be given to bidders not meeting
    all the mandatory criteria.  The mandatory criteria include:
    providing three (3) examples of advertising/marketing campaigns
    which were completed within the last three (3) years of the bid
    closing date.
    identifying the key personnel who would be assigned to several
    key categories
    complying with the certification requirements described in the
    Bidders that meet all mandatory criteria will be evaluated
    further using point-rated and financial evaluation criteria.
    Period of the Standing Offer
    The period of the Standing Offer will be from date of award to
    May 31, 2015 with the possibility of two (2) additional one (1)
    year extension periods under the same terms and conditions.
    Basis of Selection
    The three (3) responsive bids with the highest combined total
    (70% technical / 30% financial weighting) will be recommended
