    Firearms Buyback Program- Invitation to Qualify
    
    This Invitation to Qualify (ITQ) is the first phase of a procurement process by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) for the Firearms Buyback Program on behalf of Public Safety Canada (PS). Suppliers are invited to pre-qualify in accordance with the terms and conditions of this ITQ in order to become "Qualified Respondents" for the later phases of the procurement process. Only Qualified Respondents will be permitted to respond to any subsequent solicitation issued as part of the procurement process.
    
    This ITQ  is neither a call for tender nor a Request for Proposal and is not to be considered in any way a commitment by Canada, nor as authority to potential respondents to undertake any work that could be charged to Canada. 
    
    Project Overview:  Gun violence crime involving firearms is a growing threat to public safety in our communities.  The Government of Canada is taking action to help keep Canadians safe through the Firearms Buyback Program (FBP).  The primary intent of the FBP is to remove the number of newly prohibited firearms from circulation in Canada by offering fair compensation to businesses and individuals impacted by the prohibition. Through the Firearms Buyback Program, Public Safety Canada will acquire collection, verification, validation, transportation, and destruction services for prohibited Assault Style Firearms (ASF) for PS, The estimated volume of these firearms held by Businesses is within the range of 10,000 to 15,000, and the volume held by Individuals is within the range of 125,000 to 200,000. These estimates could vary as the number of affected non-restricted firearms is unknown.    It is Canada’s intention to have an iterative and phased approach to contracting for this requirement.
