    ProServices 2013 
    The purpose of this notice is to advise suppliers that the
    ProServices Request for Supply Arrangement closing date has been
    extended to 15 July 2013 to provide additional time to respond
    to Suppliers' concerns raised at the May 30th Bidders'
    We are revising the Request for Supply Arrangement - under Part
    3 Arrangement Preparation Instructions, under Section 1:
    Technical Arrangements, in end of paragraph "For existing TSPS
    and TSBIPS Suppliers (i.e. grandfathering), insert after the
    last sentence the following changes:
    A.	A proposal submitted for the recent Task Based Informatics
    Professional Services (TBIPS) and/or Task and Solutions
    Professional Services - task based only (TSPS) re-competitions
    [aka refresh], may include additional categories that are not
    yet in the Centralized Professional Services System (CPSS). 
    Bidders responding to ProServices are to reflect this
    information in ProServices under "Grandfathered", .  As part of the evaluations for ProServices,
    verification of all information (certification and categories)
    for "grandfathering" will be carried out based on the ongoing
    review of information in CPSS.
    B.	A "Grandfathered" Bidder for ProServices, is a Bidder who has
    completed the "Grandfather" certification and identified the
    categories to be grandfathered and submitted the required
    documentation to the Bid Receiving Unit by the closing
    date/time.  The categories reflected by a "Grandfathered" Bidder
    for ProServices are the categories which are contained in the
    Bidder's response (through the Data Collection Component [DCC])
    to TBIPS and/or TSPS.  A "Grandfathered" Bidder for ProServices
    can also identify a new category or new categories; to do so,
    the "Grandfathered" Bidder must select the necessary
    certifications in the DCC and provide the category
    substantiation for each new category.  The "Grandfathered"
    Bidder is not required to re-submit certifications previously
    provided to the recent TBIPS and/or TSPS re-competition, as this
    information will be part of the verification of all information
    (certification and categories) for "grandfathering" carried out
    for ProServices.
    C.	In addition to completing the required information in the DCC
    under Category Substantiation, a reference letter can be
    submitted, and indicated in the Cross Reference Field that it is
    being submitted by hard copy. Suppliers still need to complete
    the "Category References" section.  It is noted this alters the
    instructions under Categories Summaries, item 1.
    Instructions for the use of the DCC are available on the CPSS
    web site at: . 
    Security Requirement
    There is a security requirement associated with the requirements
    of the Supply Arrangement.
    The Supplier must hold, at minimum, a valid Designated
    Organization Screening (DOS) issued by the Canadian Industrial
    Security Directorate (CISD), by issuance of the Supply
    Arrangement.  The Supply Arrangement Authority may verify the
    Supplier's security clearance with the CISD of PWGSC at any time
    during the period of the Supply Arrangement.
    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.
