Trade Agreement: WTO-AGP/NAFTA/AIT/Canada FTAs with Peru/Colombia/Panama Tendering Procedures: Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: N/A - P&A/LOI Only Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: The current RCAF pilot training system is based on two inter related service contracts with end dates of 2021 and 2027. Efforts are underway to ensure a seamless transition and that any future training system is cohesive and structured to leverage emerging, more flexible technologies. A Request For Information (RFI) has been released and is the first step in an engagement process intended to exploit Canadian industry experience and explore the potential for participation of industry in providing maximum value and capability for the RCAF. This RFI is intended to be a starting point. It is seen as both an examination of feasibility and a sounding board exercise as we begin the examination of options, exploring what is within the realm of the possible. It is also intended to gauge what interest and capabilities exists for industry participation. Open dialogue in both collective and individual forums will be used to examine the potential for industry involvement in the development of future RCAF pilot training systems. This is not a bid solicitation, and no contract will result from this RFI. Requirements are subject to change, which may be as a result of information provided in response to this RFI. Potential respondents are advised that any information submitted to Canada in response to this RFI may, or may not be used by Canada in the development of a subsequent competitive RFP. The issuance of this RFI does not create an obligation for Canada to issue a subsequent RFP, and does not bind Canada legally or otherwise, to enter into any agreement or to accept or reject any suggestions. There will be no short listing or pre-qualification of firms for purposes of undertaking any future work as a result of this RFI. Similarly, participation in this RFI process is not a condition or prerequisite for participation in any RFP.
