    REQUEST FOR SUPPLY ARRANGEMENTS FOR TEMPORARY HELP SERVICES
    
    BACKGROUND:
    
    The procurement tool of Temporary Help Services (THS) in the

    which include a Standing Offer (SO) and a Supply Arrangement
    (SA).

    (RFSA) is presently posted on Government of Canada Electronic
    Tendering System (BuyandSell.gc.ca/Tenders) (GETS), solicitation

    This solicitation is an opportunity for Suppliers who have a

    EN578-060502/G to submit a new arrangement to qualify to provide

    and/or  EN578-060502/G.  New Suppliers are invited to submit an
    arrangement to qualify to provide the services described in the
