    Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid
    Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall  Proposal
    Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No
    Nature of Requirements: 
    The RCMP has a requirement to provide Water Transport Training to ensure its members receive proper training in marine vessels operation and execution of marine policing duties in accordance with the RCMP Course Training Standard (CTS) as well as the competencies required by Transport Canada (TC) for operators of marine vessels. Transport Canada requires the operators of all RCMP vessels to hold a minimum of a 1) Small Vessel Proficiency certificate 2) Marine Emergency Duties certificate and 3) Restricted Operators (Maritime) radio license requirements.
    The RCMP Course Training Standard (CTS) titled “Inland Basic Water Transport” (BWT) (CL5501) supports this requirement.    In addition to the BWT course, operators functioning in a coastal environment require training in more advanced chart work, Radar/GPS, and boat handling specific to the equipment utilized at their Detachments. The Water Transport Electronic Navigation (ENC) Course (CL5503) meets this need.
    The coordination and delivery of the water transport courses is an ongoing requirement for members of the RCMP.  Delivery of the requirement will be made across British Columbia. Instructors must meet Transport Canada requirements and have a high level of experience and appropriate certification to deliver this type of training.  Given the number of RCMP vessels located throughout the Division and the issue of releasing operational members to support lengthy training requirements, an external contractor is required to support course delivery.
    This bid solicitation is to establish a contract with task authorizations for the delivery of the Work detailed in the bid solicitation, to the Identified User.
    The period of the resulting contract will be for a two year period from Contract Award with Canada having irrevocable options to extend the term of the contract by up to two additional one year periods as specified in the resulting contract clauses under the same conditions.
    All enquiries must be submitted in writing to the Contracting Authority by e-mailing no later than 10 calendar days before the bid closing date. Enquiries received after that time may not be answered.

Bidders intending to submit bids should obtain solicitation documents from the Government Electronic Tendering System (GETS) at Addenda, when issued, will be available on GETS.

    Due to the nature of the bid solicitation, bids transmitted by e-mail will not be accepted. Refer to Part 2 (Bidder Instructions) of the Solicitation for more information.
