    Empty Container Information System (ECIS): Concept of Operations
    Transport Canada, Port Metro Vancouver, TransLink and the
    British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure
    are partnering to conduct an ECIS Concept of Operations Study. 
    In broad terms, the goal of the Study is to advance a framework
    within which technology, industry stakeholders and agencies
    collaborate to enable exchange of information that would support
    optimization of off-dock Gateway transport and logistics in
    Metro Vancouver. 
     The objectives for the ECIS Concept of Operations Study are to:
    -Advance the ECIS concept to a more detailed functional
    assessment and validation. 
    -Develop an ECIS architecture.
    -Validate the ECIS concept through deeper and broader
    stakeholder consultation.
    -Evaluate the merits of the ECIS for the public and private
    -Develop an implementation plan for execution of a Pilot Project.
    The Concept of Operation Study is expected to provide a clear
    path to delivering the concept presented in the Proof of Concept
    Study, in the context of the considerations raised.  The Concept
    of Operations should clearly describe what ECIS will do, how
    ECIS will work, and the potential roles of stakeholders in ECIS.
     Additionally, this study is expected to narrate a process to
    deliver an ECIS Pilot Project.  While a potential functionality
    of an ECIS Pilot Project is outlined in the Proof of Concept
    report, other ideas may also be explored. 
    As part of the proposal, the Consultant is expected to develop a
    Work Program.
    The final Technical Report must be delivered by June 30, 2013.
    Delivery Date: Above-mentioned
    The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
    Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
