    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 refresh of the RFSA in place for the provision of SBIPS. This will allow new suppliers to become SBIPS SA Holders and to allow existing SBIPS SA Holders to qualify for additional Streams.
    
    It is not mandatory for existing SA Holders to provide a response to a refresh RFSA solicitation. Existing Suppliers may submit a bid only if they wish to add to their current qualifications (Ex.: Tier, Region, Region, Metropolitan Area, Streams, and/or Categories).
    
    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 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.
