    One method of supply used by Public Works and Government
    Services Canada (PWGSC) to satisfy the requirements of
    departments and agencies is to arrange with suppliers to submit
    a standing offer to provide goods, services or both during a
    specified period. Specific departments and agencies are then
    authorized by PWGSC to make call-ups against the standing offer
    detailing the exact quantities of goods or level of services
    they wish to order at a particular time, during the effective
    period of the standing offer in accordance with the
    predetermined conditions.
    A Request for Standing Offers (RFSO) is an invitation to
    suppliers to provide PWGSC with a standing offer. The quantity
    of goods, level of services and estimated expenditure specified
    in the RFSO are only an approximation of requirements given in
    good faith. A RFSO does not commit PWGSC to authorize the
    utilization of a standing offer or to procure or contract for
    any goods, services or both. A standing offer is not a contract.
    The issuance by PWGSC of a Standing Offer and Call-up Authority
    to successful suppliers and to departments and agencies
    authorized to make call-ups does not constitute an agreement by
    Canada to order any or all of the goods, services or both
    offered. Departments and agencies may make one or several
    call-ups against a standing offer.
    On behalf of the Department of National Defence, a Request For
    Standing Offers has been issued for the provision of logistics
    support services to support deployed naval vessels assigned to
    the Royal Canadian Navy, and any deployed support staffs, or
    other Canadian Forces elements deployed on an "if and when
    requested" basis within the following geographical areas:
    - Zone 1: United States West Coast
    - Zone 2: Mexican and Central American West Coast
    - Zone 3: South American West Coast
    - Zone 4: South Pacific Ocean Coast
    - Zone 5: Japanese and South Korean Coasts
    - Zone 6: Chinese Coasts
    - Zone 7: South West Pacific Coasts
    - Zone 8: Indian Ocean Coasts.
    Goods and services may be requested in various ports throughout
    the specified geographical areas.
    Up to eight National Individual Standing Offers (one per Zone)
    may be established as a result of this solicitation.
    The period of the Standing Offer(s) will be from January 1, 2013
    (or the date of Standing Offer, if later) to December 31, 2013.
    In the event that Canada requires an extension of the period of
    the Standing Offer(s), the Standing Offer(s) will include a
    provision for Canada to authorize its use beyond the initial
    period for up to two additional six-month periods.
    Complete information regarding the requirement can be found in
    the solicitation documents available for ordering via MERX.com.
    After issuance of a standing offer, offerors may request a
    debriefing on the results of the request for standing offers
    process. Offerors should make the request to the Standing Offer
    Authority within 15 working days of receipt of the results of
    the request for standing offers process. The debriefing may be
    in writing, by telephone or in person.
