    Competitive Procurement Strategy: Lowest/Lower Bid
    Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No
    Nature of Requirements: 
    Defense Research and Development Canada (DRDC) - Valcartier Research Center intends to issue two Regional Individual Standing Offers (RISO) for the machining, assembly and welding of medium to large parts with precision ranging from medium to high for its research projects. Some additional services such as services for surface treatment (liquid paint with or without a separate undercoat / galvanization) may also be required. 
    For that purpose, companies with a fleet of machinery that can comply with the technical specifications will be invited to tender.
    For each call-up, the Contractor will have to analyze DRDC’s requirement and review the technical drawings provided. The Contractor will be required to provide a written estimate of the work to be performed. This estimate must include the transportation (pick-up and/or delivery), labour and materials.
    Two (2) Standing Offers, for a total estimated value of $450,000.00 (plus applicable taxes), may result from this Request for Standing Offers. These standing offers will be issued on a proportional basis: 60% of the total value of the Standing Offers (estimated at $ 270,000.00) to the Offeror with the lowest eligible bid and 40% (estimated at $ 180,000.00) to the Offeror who submitted the second eligible bid with the lowest evaluated price.
    If a single responsive bid is received, it is expected that a standing offer, totaling $ 450,000.00 (plus applicable taxes) approximately, will result from this Request for Standing Offers.
    The duration of the Standing Offers is 1 year and 2 additional one-year periods.
    This project is estimated at $1,034,775 (taxes included) for 3 years.
    Delivery Date: Above-mentioned
