    This Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA) cancels and supersedes the previous RFSA number EVC01-202002/A. 
    The Government of Canada through this Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA), intends to establish and maintain Supply Arrangements (SAs) with suppliers to provide small vessel disposal services (recovery and transportation) of any vessel up to a maximum of 65 feet (19.81m) in length, for one or more regions/sub-regions in accordance with the Statement of Requirement - Annex A.
    The services includes two (2) streams:  
    STREAM 1 - Simple Vessel Disposal (Land based not requiring marine transportation to reach vessel)
    STREAM 2 - Vessel Disposal (Marine based, vessel in water and requiring marine transportation to reach vessel)
    This Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA) is to establish supply arrangements for the delivery of the requirement detailed in the RFSA to the Identified Users across Canada, including geographic areas subject to Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements (CLCAs) and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA).
    To meet the Government of Canada’s objectives of encouraging Indigenous socio-economic development through federally funded opportunities, resulting bid solicitations from this RFSA may be set aside under the Procurement Strategy for Indigenous Business (PSIB) or may include an Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP). For additional information on PSIB refer to 1610723869356 and for additional information on the Indigenous Benefits Plan refer to Annex H - Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP).
    Procurements will be directed to qualified Indigenous Businesses where practical and in accordance with the selection process identified in the RFSA. 
    Any resulting bid solicitation may be subject to the provisions of the trade agreements. Certain obligations under the trade agreements may not apply where the vessel is located in Nunavut region or an area covered by a modern treaty. If a set-aside or an exception is made use of or relied upon (e.g. any measure adopted or maintained with respect to Indigenous Peoples, set-aside for minority businesses, etc.), some or all aspects of the procurement may not be subject to certain trade agreement obligations.
