    THE SECOND DRAFT OF THE REQUEST FOR SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT (RFSA) IS
    AVAILABLE AS AN ATTACHMENT TO THIS NOTICE
    
    The Translation Bureau (the Bureau) is undertaking a large-scale
    transformation initiative designed to modernize the Bureau and
    put it on solid footing for the future. One of the pillars of
    this transformation, which affects all of the Bureau's business
    lines, is the revamping of the linguistic services procurement
    process. As part of this revamping, the Bureau would like to
    renew its supplier directory for translation services and set up
    supply arrangements with pre-qualified suppliers. In modernizing
    its directory, the Bureau wants to simplify the contracting
    process, improve the planning and predictability of contracting
    requirements, and make contracting procedures and the rules
    governing the operation of the directory more transparent and
    effective.
    
    Accordingly, the purpose of this request for information (RFI)
    is to publish a second draft of the Request for Supply
    Arrangements (RFSA) that modifies the proposed requirements and
    the Bureau's strategy for renewing its supplier directory.
    Interested firms are being asked to provide feedback on the
    proposed approach. This feedback will be considered in the
    development of the formal Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA),
    which will be used to solicit bids as part of this initiative.
    
    
    This is not a bid solicitation. This RFI will not result in the
    award of any contract. Therefore, potential suppliers of any
    goods or services described in this RFI should not reserve stock
    or facilities, or allocate resources, as a result of any
    information contained in this RFI. Nor will this RFI result in
    the creation of any source list. Thus, whether or not any
    potential supplier responds to this RFI will not preclude that
    supplier from participating in any future procurement.
    Furthermore, reference to goods or services in this RFI will not
    necessarily result in the procurement of such goods or services.
    This RFI is simply intended to solicit feedback from the
    industry with respect to its contents.
    
    Nothing in this RFI shall be construed as a commitment from
    Canada to issue an RFSA for this project. Canada may use
    non-proprietary information provided in this review in the
    preparation of any formal RFSA.
    
    
    The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
    procurement.
    
    Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
    
    Delivery Date: Above-mentioned
