    Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid
    Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall  Proposal
    Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No
    Nature of Requirements: 
    
    REQUEST FOR SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT (RFSA) FOR SOLUTION-BASED
    INFORMATICS PROFESSIONAL SERVICES (SBIPS) RE-COMPETITION
    EN537-05IT01/J
    
    IMPORTANT NOTICE TO SUPPLIERS:
    The Government Electronic Tendering Service on
    Buyandsell.gc.ca/tenders is the sole authoritative source for
    Government of Canada tenders that are subject to trade
    agreements or subject to departmental policies that require
    public advertising of tenders.
    
    Suppliers interested in submitting an arrangement in response to
    this RFSA solicitation can access the RFSA documentation
    directly from this PWGSC Notice of Proposed Procurement (NPP)
    publication at: 
    https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/tenders
    
    Suppliers are reminded of the importance of reading the SBIPS
    RFSA solicitation document carefully before submitting an
    arrangement.
    
    BACKGROUND:
    This document will serve as a re-competition of the RFSA in
    place for the provision of SBIPS to replace all SAs awarded
    under this procurement vehicle.  This SBIPS RFSA solicitation
    EN537-05IT01/J replaces SBIPS existing SA under EN537-05IT01/H. 
    
    REQUIREMENT:
    This solicitation is a RFSA to satisfy Canada's requirement for
    the provision of SBIPS to locations throughout Canada, excluding
    any locations in areas subject to any of the Comprehensive Land
    Claim Agreement.
    
    Each arrangement submitted may result in a SA.  
    
    This procurement vehicle includes eleven Streams:
    
    LIST STREAMS:
    Stream 1.	Business Transformation
    Stream 2.	ERP/ CRM
    Stream 3.	Electronic Services Delivery
    Stream 4.	Geospatial Informatics Services
    Stream 5.	Information Management/Business Intelligence
    Stream 6.	IT Systems Management
    Stream 7.	Legacy Support and Transition
    Stream 8.	Managed Services
    Stream 9.	Network Services
    Stream 10.	Security Management
    Stream 11.	Systems Integration
    
    This SA will remain valid for 18 months after the SA start date
    or until such time as Canada no longer considers them to be
    advantageous to use them. The period for awarding contracts
    under the SA begins on the start date of the SA.
    
    It is anticipated that the SBIPS procurement vehicle will
    incorporate a quarterly refresh schedule once the resulting SA
    are issued from this RFSA Re-Competition Solicitation.  This
    will allow new suppliers to become SBIPS SA Holders and to allow
    existing SBIPS SA Holders to qualify for additional Streams.
    
    PWGSC's intent is to issue a RFSA to replace the SAs for the
    Services on an annual basis, although PWGSC reserves the right
    to choose to proceed with a different procurement vehicle for
    the requirement if it considers such action appropriate. Each
    such re-competition requires all suppliers, including those who
    may have received instruments under the previous solicitation,
    to submit an arrangement in response to the RFSA Re-competition
    solicitation in order to continue to provide services under its
    resulting SAs. 
    
    SET-ASIDE PROGRAM FOR ABORIGINAL BUSINESS:
    Part of this procurement may be designated by one or more
    Identified Users as set-aside under the Federal Government's
    Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB). In these
    specific cases, (i) the procurement is set aside from the
    international trade agreements under the provision each has for
    set-asides for small and minority businesses, and (ii) as per
    Article 1802 of the AIT, the AIT does not apply.
    
    In order to be considered as an Aboriginal Business under the
    PSAB, the Supplier must complete the Aboriginal Business
    certification contained in the Data Collection Component of the
    CPSS.
    
    By executing the certification, the Supplier warrants that it is
    an Aboriginal business as defined in the Set-aside Program for
    Aboriginal Business.
    
    LOCATION OF SERVICES:

    and Metropolitan Areas" at the following link are incorporated

    National Zone has been renamed to "Remote/Virtual Zone",
