Trade Agreement: NONE Tendering Procedures: Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: N/A - P&A/LOI Only Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: Future Pilot Training - Update to Industry Introduction 1. This Update to Industry continues the discussion regarding Canada's Future Pilot Training (FPT) and follows on from previous engagements: a. September 2013 - 2013 Request for Information (RFI) publication; b. February 2014 - Industry Engagement Session; c. April 2014 - 2nd RFI; d. May 2014 - 2nd Industry Engagement Session. Background 2. The information received during the February and May 2014 sessions and internal staff analysis identified that a full implementation of the FPT system will not be achievable in time to avoid a training gap upon completion of the current NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC) training services contract. An interim Future Pilot Training solution (iFPT) will therefore be required to ensure the continuity of pilot training. As a consequence, the original FPT Project will remain in Options Analysis (OA) and is being re-profiled to deliver the comprehensive long-term pilot training requirements for Canada later than previously published. Discussion 3. Canada recognises that there has already been a significant amount of valuable open engagement and dialogue with industry as part of the initial work to help understand the challenges of FPT. This existing work and outputs from previous engagements continues to be evaluated to ascertain what benefits may be transferred into the efforts now focusing on iFPT. 4. The iFPT project team is currently working to establish the strategic requirements and identify the business needs required to allow it to receive approval to start its OA process. It is anticipated that a further RFI may be released once this initial scoping work has been completed. Responses Requested 5. No response to this update is requested from industry. The purpose is to inform industry that there has been a change in the FPT project and that a new project, iFPT has been created to address any potential gap in pilot training. 6. This change to how Canada intends to implement FPT will be included in the next edition of the Defence Acquisition Guide (DAG). 7. Questions or requests for the FPT or iFPT project should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Delivery Date: Above-mentioned The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement. Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
