    Title: 2014 Accommodation Directory - Request for Standing Offer
    - Regular Markets
    Request for non-commissionable rates for guest rooms,

    well as Federal Government cost reimbursable contractors, will
    be able to access the directory through the Internet Web site.
    As a minimum, the accommodation must be safe, clean and
    comfortable. A successful offer will be based on the Offeror's
    proper completion of the Request for Standing Offer (RFSO),
    acceptance of the terms and conditions, remittance of the
    listing fee  ($200.00CDN per establishment in Canada, $200.00US
    per establishment in the United States and other countries
    and/or a flat fee of $400.00US for chains that wish to submit
    rates for their establishments in countries other than Canada).

    Government of Canada ($200.00CDN for Canada, $200.00US for the
    United States and  various limits in Canadian dollars depending
    on the country for countries other than Canada and United
    States) for publication in the Accommodation Directory for
    Government Employees. 
    The Government of Canada maintains a source list of
    accommodation suppliers in Canada, the USA  and other countries
    around the world. Each year a Request for Standing Offer (RFSO)
    to provide room rates for the Government of Canada Electronic
    Accommodation Directory for Government Employees is mailed to
    each supplier on the source list.  Each year thereafter, the
    source list is purged of suppliers who have not responded to the
    RFSO for any of the last three (3) years.
    Properties on the source list will be mailed the RFSO and the
    requirement will also be published on the Government Electronic
    Tendering Service. The period of the Standing offer will be from 
    January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014.  Properties which are not
    on the source list but would like to be added and receive the
    RFSO, should mail or fax their request to the attention of:
