    1.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 Canadian Coast Guard has a requirement for the supply of new Class approved Diesel Propulsion Train Shipsets (DPTSs), to be procured from Caterpillar to replace the existing Diesel Propulsion Train Shipsets (DPTSs) originally supplied by Caterpillar and installed onboard the Cape Class Motor Lifeboats (MLBs). The first thirty one (31) MLBs built were equipped with Caterpillar 3196B, C rated Marine Engine and the last five (5) MLBs were equipped with Caterpillar model C12 Marine Propulsion Engines, that were equivalent substitute engines meeting the MLBs design requirements and having the same fit, form and function to the 3196B, C which was no longer in production at time of the last five (5) MLBs construction.  For that reason, we have two (2) different types of DPTSs, one (1) equipped with Caterpillar diesel engines model 3196B, C rated Marine and the second equipped with Caterpillar model C12 Marine Propulsion Engines.
    
    Each MLB has one DPTS that is composed of one (1) Port Diesel Propulsion Train (DPT) and One (1) Starboard DPT. Each DPT is mainly composed of one (1) diesel marine propulsion engine with resilient mounts, one (1) reduction gear box, interconnecting shafts with couplings, bearings and seals, propulsion controls, alarm and monitoring systems, spare parts, factory acceptance tests (FAT), technical assistance throughout the strip out and implementation periods and sea acceptance tests (SAT). For more details see the ACAN SOW.
    
    For this procurement, the initial contract will be for the replacement thirty one (31) DPTSs with an option for the remaining five (5) DPTSs.
    
    The strip-out of the existing DPTSs and the installation of the new DPTSs will be achieved under different Vessel Life Extension 2 (VLE 2) contracts. The Contractor of the DPTSs will be identified as the DPTSs Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Contractor in the VLE 2 contracts.
    
    The DPTSs replacement must be accomplished by the use of marine components approve by a Canada recognized Classification Society (CS).  The auxiliary components required to complete this installation must be designed and tested in accordance with the applicable CS standard.
    
    The Design and Manufacturing of the DPTSs, its related equipment and components, the Set to Work, Tests and Trials must be IAW applicable rules and regulations of one of Canada’s recognized CS and Transport Canada Marine Safety.
    
    The Contractor must retain the Total System Responsibility that includes manufacturing and performance of the new DPTSs with its related equipment and components
    
    Following the strip out of the existing DPTSs, equipment and components done by the VLE Contractor, the Contractor must provide a Field Service Representative (FSR) to determine that the dismantling and the strip out is IAW the requirement.  During the Strip out, Installation, Set to Work (STW), Testing, Commissioning and Trials, the Contractor will be required to provide, as applicable, the services of an FSR.
    
    The MLBs are used in different regions of Canada, the Home port for each MLB is identified in the ACAN SOW.
    
    The Interested Suppliers can have access to the ACAN SOW with the reference Drawings at the following site:
    
    https://amsinkca.sharepoint.com/:f:/s/CCG-VirtualBiddersConference-CapeNaden/EnTFUi7ny2lDtTS0IRAFIGEB172gt-r2FyA0ZC1hRnjAyQ?e=oMsnFU

    You are hereby notified that the government intends to negotiate with one firm only as identified above. Should you have any questions concerning this requirement, contact the contracting officer identified above.
    
    An Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) allows departments and agencies to post a notice, for no less than fifteen (15) calendar days, indicating to the supplier community that it intends to award a good, service or construction contract to a pre-identified contractor. If no other supplier submits, on or before the closing date, a Statement of Capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, the contracting authority may then proceed with the award.  However, should a Statement of Capabilities be found to meet the requirements set out in the ACAN, then the contracting authority will proceed to a full tendering process.
    
    Suppliers who consider themselves fully qualified and available to provide the services/goods described herein, may submit a statement of capabilities in writing to the contact person identified in this Notice on or before the closing date of this Notice. The statement of capabilities must clearly demonstrate how the supplier meets the advertised requirements.
    
    The PWGSC file number, the contracting officer's name and the closing date of the ACAN must appear on the outside of the envelope in block letters or, in the case of a facsimile transmission, on the covering page.
    
    The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.
    
    Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
