    This bid solicitation cancels and supersedes Stream 4 and 9 from previous bid solicitation number 6D112-202491/A dated June 17, 2020 with a closing of July 2, 2020 at 14:00 EDT. 
    Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), on behalf of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), has a requirement for nursing services on an "as and when requested" basis at identified airports and border points of entry and for Travellers returning from outside of Canada who are placed under quarantine and housed in a Quarantine Site by the order of the Government of Canada (GoC). 
    PHAC requires Registered Nurses (RNs) to perform health assessments to support its onsite health operations team. The contract nurses will provide nursing services such as conducting health assessment checks on Travellers returning from abroad, at Quarantine Sites and at the identified airports and border points of entry, to prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19 upon entering Canada. 
    The nursing services are required in the provinces and territory as follow:
    Stream 4 - Saskatchewan; and
    Stream 9 - Nova Scotia.
    Up to 2 contracts may be awarded as a result of this bid solicitation; one contract per stream. If a Bidder has the lowest evaluated price for more than 1 stream, a contract will be recommended for award which will combine the streams. Canada reserves the right to award a contract, or multiple contracts, to more than one Bidder to address Canada’s requirement, in whole or in part, as described in the Statement of Work.
    The period of any resulting contract will be from the date of contract award to November 30, 2020 inclusive and will include 6 irrevocable 1 month option periods each to extend the terms and conditions of each contract.
    There are no security requirements associated with this requirement.
    The resulting contracts will not include deliveries of services within locations within Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Quebec, or Labrador that are subject to Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements (CLCAs).  Any requirements for deliveries of services within locations within Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Quebec, or Labrador that are subject to CLCAs will have to be treated as a separate procurement not forming part of the bid solicitation.
    The national security exceptions provided for in the trade agreements have been invoked; therefore, this procurement is excluded from all of the obligations of all the trade agreements.
    Due to the nature of this requirement, transmission of responses by mail, or by facsimile to PSPC will not be accepted. Bids must be submitted directly to the Contracting Authority by email. See section 2.2 Submission of Bids of the RFP for additional information.
