    This document will serve to renew the Request for Supply
    Arrangement (RFSA) in place for the provision of TBIPS and to
    maintain the current Supply Arrangements awarded under
    EN578-055605/E.  
    
    Existing Suppliers are not required to re-qualify for any
    Categories for which they already have an SA although they must
    otherwise comply with the requirements of the bid solicitation.
    
    
    QUARTERLY REFRESH FOR TBIPS is posted on
    https://buyandsell.gc.ca/procurement-data/tenders under
    Solicitation Number EN578-055605/F. 
    
    
    REQUIREMENT:
    -----------------------
    This solicitation is a Request for Bids to satisfy Canada's
    requirement for the provision of TBIPS to locations throughout
    Canada, excluding any locations in areas subject to any of the
    Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements.
    
    Each bid may result in a Supply Arrangement (SA).  
    
    This procurement vehicle includes sevent Streams:
    
    Stream 1: Application Services 
    Stream 2: Geomatics Services
    Stream 3: IM/IT Services 
    Stream 4: Business Management Services
    Stream 5: Project Management Services
    Stream 6: Cyber Protection Services
    Stream 7: Telecommunications Services

    advantageous to use them. The period for awarding contracts
    under the Supply Arrangement begins on the start date of the
    Supply Arrangement.

    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 (a "renewal bid solicitation") requires all
    bidders, including those who may have received instruments under
    the previous solicitation, to submit a bid in response to the
    renewal bid solicitation in order to continue to provide
    services under its resulting Supply Arrangements.
