    BACKGROUND
    
    This document will serve to refresh the Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA) in place for the provision of ProServices and to maintain the current Supply Arrangements.  
    
    Existing Suppliersare not required to re-qualify for any categories for which they already have a SA although they must otherwise continue to comply with the requirements of the bid solicitation.
    
    Existing suppliers on the Task Based Informatics Professional Services (TBIPS) and/or the Task and Solutions Professional Services (TSPS (task based only)) who have been awarded a TBIPS and/or TSPS (task based only) standing offer, supply arrangementor both from the recent annual re-competition or refresh bid submission, maygrandfather their awarded TBIPS and/or TSPS (Task based only) categories into ProServices providing all other mandatory requirements specific to the ProServices refresh bid submission have been met.  These suppliers still have to download the RFSA document from the Buy and Sell Tenders site, and enter and submit their information into the CPSS Supplier Module - Data Collection Component (DCC).  The information which must be entered into the CPSS Supplier Module - DCC is included in the RFSA.  
    
    REQUIREMENT
    
    This solicitation is a Request for Supply Arrangement to satisfy Canada's requirement for the provision of ProServices to locations throughout Canada, excluding any locations in areas subject to any of the Comprehensive Land ClaimsAgreements.
    
    Each bid may result in a Supply Arrangement (SA).  
    This procurement vehicle includes twelve Streams:
    
    IT Streams (mirrored from TBIPS)
    
    Stream 1: Application Services 
    Stream 2: Geomatics Services
    Stream 3: IM/IT Services 
    Stream4: Business Management Services
    Stream 5: Project Management Services
    Stream 6: Cyber Protection Services
    Stream 7: Telecommunications Services
    
    Non-IT Streams (mirrored from TSPS)
    
    Stream 8:    Human Resources Services

Each such re-competition requires all bidders, including those who may have received a supply arrangements under the previous original competition solicitation, to submit a bid in response to the re-competition bid solicitation in order to continue to provide servicesunder its resulting Supply Arrangements.
