    Third Party Expert Negotiation Advice and Services
    On June 3, 2010, the Government of Canada announced Canada's
    National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS). Under the
    strategy, for large ship construction, Canada established a
    strategic long-term relationship with two Canadian shipyards.
    The National Shipbuilding Procurement Secretariat and the
    Department of Public Works and Government have a requirement for
    contract negotiation expertise, advice and related training
    services on an "As and When Requested" basis. Recognizing the
    high profile nature, strategic importance, complexity and
    longevity of the NSPS program, Canada is seeking the services of
    a Contractor with proven expertise in complex contract
    negotiations of a similar size and scope to guide and provide
    expert negotiation advice to Canada in order to facilitate the
    successful execution of these complex agreements. 
    There is no known Security Requirement for this requirement at
    this time. However, the Contractor must treat as confidential,
    during as well as after the provision services contracted for,
    any information of a character confidential to the affairs of
    Canada, to which the Contractor becomes privy. 
    Should it become necessary, during the course of the service,
    for Canada to invoke further security measures, the Contractor
    will be required to meet those requirements as detailed by the
    Corporate and International Industrial Security Directorate
    prior to the start of Work on the Authorized Task. 
    Work under some Tasks may also require a Non-Disclosure
    agreement between the Contractor and third party companies prior
    to the start of the Work. 
    It is anticipated that the initial contract will be in place for
    three years and will include the option to extend for up to two
    additional one year periods. 
    The requirement is subject to the provisions of the World Trade
    Organization Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP), the
    North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and the Agreement
    on Internal Trade (AIT). 
    The total estimated value of this requirement is $500,000 to
    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.
