    Request For Information (RFI):
    The Department of Public Works and Governments Services Canada

    strategy if necessary.

    described above;

    sorting, racking, grouping, repackaging, crating, data
    recording, asset tagging, inventory control and shipment
    preparation for a wide variety of furniture, furnishings,
    appliances, office supplies, IT equipment, vehicles and other

    and Development (DFATD). Provide local transportation services

    In this Request for Information (RFI), the Federal Government is
    seeking comments, concerns and alternative recommendations to
    the attached procurement strategy.
    This is not a bid solicitation. This RFI will not result in the
    issuance of any standing offer; therefore, potential suppliers
    of any goods or services described in this RFI should not
    earmark stock or facilities, nor allocate resources, as a result
    of any information contained in this RFI. Nor will this RFI
    result in the creation of any source list; therefore, whether or
    not any potential supplier responds to this RFI will not
    preclude that supplier from participating in any future
    procurement.  Also, the procurement of any of the services
    described in this RFI will not necessarily follow this RFI. 
    This RFI is simply intended to solicit feedback from industry
    with respect to the matters described in this RFI.
    Respondents are requested to provide their comments, concerns
    and, where applicable, 
    alternative recommendations on how the requirements or
    objectives described in this RFI could be satisfied. 
    Respondents are also invited to provide comments regarding the
    content, format and/or organization of any draft documents
    included in this RFI.  Respondents should explain any
    assumptions they make in their responses.
