    Purpose of this RFI
    Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is
    requesting feedback to better understand
    the IT Training industry and begin consultation on the proposed
    Procurement Strategy for Commercially
    Available IT Training. Commercially Available IT Training is
    training that is commercially available,
    licensed, or sold to the general public and requires no special
    modification or maintenance over its life
    cycle. A course requiring minor modification(s) resulting in no
    additional costs to the Government of
    Canada beyond the established prices will still satisfy the
    criteria for Commercially Available IT Training.
    Nature of Request for Information
    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 earmark stock or facilities, nor allocate
    resources, as a result of any information contained in this RFI.
    This RFI is not a prequalification process and will not result
    in the creation of any source list; therefore,
    whether or not any potential supplier responds to this RFI will
    not preclude that supplier from participating
    in any future procurement. Also, the procurement of any of the
    goods and services described in this RFI
    will not necessarily follow this RFI. This RFI is simply
    intended to solicit feedback from industry with
    respect to the matters described in this RFI.
    Canada reserves the right to change at any time, any or all of
    the technical requirements stated in this
    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.
