    3.  REQUIREMENT:
    
    Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has a requirement for services for support activities for the invention assessment, market study, brokering and educational components of intellectual property management. AAFC researchers continually discover new inventions during the course of performing research and development activities. These inventions may have commercial potential for companies willing to invest in pre-commercial technologies. 
    
    Under the Public Servants Inventors Act, public servants must disclose any new inventions that they have developed in the course of their employment. As an outcome of the disclosure process, the Office of Intellectual Property and Commercialization (OIPC) may wish to commercialize certain technologies for which the Crown owns the intellectual property rights. The OIPC may therefore require business advice to improve its offer of service procedures and to continue to offer support to the AAFC community based on sound, objective information.
    
    Canada requests Bidders submit a separate bid for EACH individual Workstream. Bidders may submit a bid for one (1) or both Workstreams identified in the solicitation. A maximum of two (2) Contracts may be issued: one Contract for each Workstream.
    
    The requirement is subject to the provisions of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA).
    
    To qualify a bid will have to consist of no less than 80% of goods and/or services of Canadian origin. 
    
    
    4. EVALUATION AND SELECTION:  
    
    Mandatory and point rated technical evaluation criteria are included in Annex E of the solicitation. The responsive bid with the lowest evaluated price per point will be recommended for award of a contract.
    
    5. OWNERSHIP OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY:
    Any intellectual property arising from the performance of the Work under the Contract will vest in Canada. 
    
    6. PERIOD OF CONTRACT: 
    It is anticipated that the contract will be effective for a one (1) year period with the irrevocable option to extend the term of the Contract by up to three (3) additional one (1) year periods.
