    Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) intends to seek multiple Offerors to supply, deliver and install of Closed Office Furniture Casegoods for the Parliamentary Precinct buildings and facilities as part of the Long Term Vision and Plan (LTVP) to modernize Parliamentary accommodations. 
    PSPC Parliamentary Precinct Branch is the client.
    PSPC is responsible for the rehabilitation of Parliamentary Precinct facilities in the National Capital Area which accommodate the House of Commons, Senate and Library of Parliament members and administrative personnel.  
    Currently, requirements for commercial and household goods for each fit-up or renovation project are procured independently. In most cases, the requirement for each project is for similar items. 
    There is a need for a long-term solution where the procurement is expeditious (through call-up) and delivery lead times are aligned with project schedules.
    The requirement will be fulfilled through a Request for Standing Offer that will cover two procurement streams:
    1. Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB) for Aboriginal suppliers wishing to submit an offer;
    2. General Offerors for any Supplier and Aboriginal Suppliers wishing to submit an offer not pursuant to the PSAB.
    It is anticipated that there will be one (1) Standing Offer issued per stream as a result of this process.
    The solicitation documents will be tendered directly to specific suppliers for a limited period for competitive authority.
    1. Under the PSAB stream:
    This procurement is set aside under the federal government Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business. For more information on Aboriginal business requirements of the Set-aside Program for Aboriginal Business, see Annex 9.4 of the Supply Manual.
    This procurement is set aside from the international trade agreements under the provision each has for set-asides for small and minority businesses
    Further to Article 800 of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA), CFTA does not apply to this procurement.
    The requirement is not subject to the Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements.
    2. For the General stream, the requirement is subject to the provisions of:
    • Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement
    • Canada-Peru Free Trade Agreement (CPFTA)
    • North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
    • World Trade Organization-Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP)
    • Canada-Panama Free Trade Agreement
    • Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA)
    • Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)
    The contract period and estimated business volume for this requirement with Goods and Services Tax or Harmonized Sales Tax included is as follow:  
    Closed Office Furniture Casegoods - $2M/per year or total of $10M (1 year plus 4 year options)
    The delivery and installation will be determined at call-up award, however, there is a current requirement for the Fall and Winter 2018.  There are product-related services (reconfiguration, inventory & assessment and storage) included in the resulting Standing Offer. 
    The Phased Offer Compliance Process (POCP) applies to this requirement.
    Further information is provided in the solicitation document.
    There is no security requirements associated with the Request for Standing Offer solicitation. However, there may be security requirements associated with the resulting call-ups.
