    1.	Advance Contact Award Notice (ACAN) Explanation
    
    An ACAN is a public notice indicating to the supplier community
    that a department or agency intends to award a contract for
    goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier,
    thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in
    bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no
    supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the
    requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date
    stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed
    with the award to the pre-identified supplier. 
    
    2. 	Definition of Requirement
    
    The Department of National Defence has a requirement to purchase
    four (4) Test Receivers/Spectrum Analyzers for delivery DDP
    Destination, Gatineau Quebec, Canada.  Test Receivers are
    commercial receivers that are conceived, designed or
    manufactured to support TEMPEST testing. They should also
    support other Emission Security applications. Some receivers
    designed for Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) /
    Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing may be suitable for
    use as TEMPEST Test Receivers, if they meet the technical
    specificatons below at para 3.  General purpose test receivers
    lack the frequency range, wide bandwidth, receiver sensitivity,
    channel selectivity or dynamic range required to be used as a
    test receiver for TEMPEST purposes.
    
    3.	Minimum Essential Requirements:
    
    Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of statement of
    capabilities that it meets the following minimum requirements:
    
    Each Test Receiver must be a dual-instrument that provides two
    modes of operation, in a single box format.  The first mode must
    be a receiver optimized for TEMPEST testing and other Emission
    Security applications and the other mode must be a Spectrum
    Analyzer.  Each mode must provide full functionality and the
    equipment must be capable of switching from one mode to the
    other without having to reboot the equipment
