    Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) seeks to
    establish, on behalf of the Department of National Defence
    (DND), a Supply Arrangement for snow removal services. Snow
    removal services include all labour, materials, tools,
    supervision, and equipment necessary for snow removal, snow
    hauling, sanding, salting, etc at various DND sites within Nova
    Scotia as specified.
    This notice is to serve as an opportunity for interested
    suppliers to qualify for the existing Supply Arrangement
    W010C-12C178 - Snow Clearing/Removal - CFB Halifax.  Firms
    already on the Supply arrangement DO NOT need to re-submit.
    A supply arrangement is a non-binding arrangement between Canada
    and pre-qualified suppliers that allows departments to award
    contracts and solicit bids from a pool of pre-qualified
    suppliers for specific requirements within the scope of the
    supply arrangement. The intent of a supply arrangement is to
    establish a framework to permit expeditious processing of
    individual bid solicitations, which result in legally binding
    contracts for the services described in those bid solicitations.
    The supply arrangement is not in itself a contract, but rather a
    base document that forms part of the future Request for
    Quotation (RFQ) and resulting contract. When issued a supply
    arrangement, the supplier accepts the obligation to provide
    specified services in accordance with the supply arrangement,
    under any resulting contract that may be awarded. Any resulting
    contract will be established as a result of a RFQ. These RFQs
    will specify the specific requirements, and may contain
    additional terms and conditions that the supplier must meet.
    Any interested supplier shall contact Jeff Lockyer - or facsimile (902) 496-5016 to
    request a copy of the solicitation document.
    The period of this supply arrangement is on-going for as long as
    Canada deems it advantageous to solicit bids in this manner.
    Each year an opportunity for new vendors to submit technical
    qualifications to be added to the supply arrangement's list of
    pre-qualified vendors will appear on Buy and Sell. 
    INQUIRIES: All inquiries of a technical nature and all questions
    of a contractural nature are to be submitted to the Contracting
    Authority:, facsimile: (902)
    496-5016. Inquiries are to be made in writing and should be
    received no less than five (5) calendar days prior to the
    closing date to allow sufficient time to respond.
