    Suppliers interested in submitting a bid may access the bid solicitation document from this notice.
    
    BACKGROUND:
    ---------------------
    
    This bid solicitation will serve as a refresh of the RFSA in place for the provision of TSPS.  It allows new suppliers to become TSPS Solutions-based SA Suppliers and allows existing TSPS Solutions-based SA Suppliers to qualify for additional Tier, Streams, Regions, and/or Metropolitan Areas. 
    
    It is not mandatory for existing Solutions-based SA Suppliers to provide a response to a refresh RFSA solicitation.  
    
    The SA will be valid from date of award until such time as Canada no longer considers it to be advantageous to use the SA. The period for awarding contracts under the SA begins on the start date of the SA.
     
    REQUIREMENT:
    -----------------------
    This solicitation is a RFSA to satisfy Canada's requirement for the provision of Solutions-based Professional Services to locations throughout Canada, excluding any locations in areas subject to any of the Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements.
    
    Each bid may result in a Supply Arrangement (SA).  
    
    This method of supply includes five Streams of professional services:
    
    Stream 1: Human Resources Services; 
    Stream 2: Business Services/Change Management Services; 
    Stream 3: Project Management Services; 
    Stream 4: Real Property Project Management Services; and
    Stream 5: Technical, Engineering and Maintenance Services
    
    All Streams are structured according to the following Tiers:
    
    Tier 1:  Requirements up to and including $2 million (applicable taxes included);
    
    Tier 2:  Requirements valued at more than $2 million (applicable taxes included).
    
    Solutions-based professional services are services that are not related to a particular activity or initiative; they are requirements where Identified Users require options how to resolve a business problem.
