    A Request for Information (RFI) is not a bidding opportunity but
    an avenue to allow industry to provide information upon a
    potential requirement. In this case, industry feedback is sought
    from vendors on their ability to satisfy potential deployed
    logistics support services for the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN)
    before the issuance of a formal solicitation document.
    This RFI is issued by Public Works and Government Services
    Canada (PWGSC) on behalf of the Department of National Defence
    (DND) to gather information to assist in forming a procurement
    strategy for supporting naval requirements in various ports
    around the world. DND has a requirement to obtain deployed
    support for the RCN in foreign ports where contracted support is
    required on an if and when requested basis. 
    Respondents are encouraged to provide ideas and suggestions on
    how the eventual solicitation (pricing, evaluation components,
    work scope, etc.) might be structured. 
    Note that at this time, there is no firm requirement for
    procurement. A subsequent solicitation will be issued once a
    requirement for procurement has been finalized.
    Responding to this RFI is entirely optional and is not a
    pre-qualification for procurement, nor a prerequisite for
    participation in any future solicitations from PWGSC.
    Documents associated with this Request For Information (also
    known as a Letter of Interest) are available at
    This PWGSC office provides procurement services to the public in
    Delivery Date: Above-mentioned
    The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
