Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) • 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 the Requirement • The CCGS Mamilossa is an AP1-88/400 Air Cushioned Vehicle (ACV) that was built in 2009 by Hoverwork Limited in the UK. The ACV is based in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, and has operated in Eastern Canada and along the St. Lawrence River for 13 years. • The ACVs primary mission is as a Search and Rescue (SAR) unit; however, it is also deployed for buoy tender construction and maintenance, as well as icebreaking operations. The ACVs in the Quebec Region are dispatched for operations that no other vessel in the CCGS fleet can execute. Operating at over 50 knots over liquid and frozen water in all seasons and conditions, the CCGS Mamilossa is a versatile and critical CCG asset which Canadian lives depend on. • The CCGS Mamilossa will enter into a Vessel Life Extension (VLE) drydocking in April 2024 where the ACVs equipment and structure will be repaired and modernized. The goal of the VLE is to extend the crafts operating life for an additional 10 years. • The ACVs are unique vehicles which combine marine and aviation assets. The craft is entirely constructed of thin gauge aircraft grade aluminum plate and extrusions that are subject to BS EN ISO 15614-2: 2005 aluminium alloy welding techniques and CCG developed, Stir Welding procedures. The crafts hull and structure has incurred significant damage from harsh environmental conditions and demanding operations. Analysis and repair of this damage is a high priority work item in the upcoming VLE Contract. • Prior to the drydocking, the following tasks must be undertaken: o The affected components must be assessed for causality and structural integrity by a Naval Architect/Professional Engineer (PE) with expertise in thin gauge aluminum. o A repair strategy must be developed depending on the location of the affected components and the gravity of the damage. Potential hull torsion and flexing, as well as the support of equipment and superior decks must be considered. o A repair procedure, intended for use during the drydocking, must be developed and certified for each affected component. The repair must restore the structural integrity of the craft as well as prevent recursion. The repair procedures will include the development of engineering drawings and new welding procedures that may be required. 3. Criteria for Assessment of the Statement of Capabilities (Minimum Essential Requirements) • Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of employee qualifications (Curriculum Vitae, Naval Architect/Professional Engineer documents) that their qualifications/expertise/experience (as appropriate) meets the following requirements: 1) A minimum of 10 years experience working with the Canadian Coast Guard on major structural projects (greater than $40,000.00). a.

Must be able to provide a list and description of a minimum of ten (10) non-overlapping projects involving thin gauge aluminum (3mm and less), undertaken by the same employee. b. Must be able to provide a description of a minimum of one (1) project involving thin gauge aluminum (3mm and less) exposed to fire, undertaken by the same employee. c. Must be able to provide a list and description of a minimum of two (2) non-overlapping projects involving the development of welding procedures for 2mm thickness aluminum, undertaken by the same employee. 3) At least one employee with a minimum of ten (10) years experience working with Air Cushioned Vehicles. a. Must be able to provide a list and description of a minimum of ten (10) non-overlapping projects involving Air Cushioned Vehicles, undertaken by the same employee. 4) At least one employee with experience developing repair recommendations of thin gauge aluminum involving BS EN ISO 15614-2: 2005 aluminium alloy welding techniques and CCG Stir Welding procedures. a. Must be able to provide a list and description of a minimum of two (2) projects applying BS EN ISO 15614-2: 2005 aluminium alloy welding techniques and CCG Stir Welding procedures. 5) At least one employee with a minimum ten (10) years experience conducting aluminum welding inspections. a.
