REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

This requirement is for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO).
Title: Specialized call centre to handle incidents involving dead or distressed marine mammals
Provide specialized services and expertise as required for the implementation and management of an integrated system for processing incoming calls in French to report incidents involving marine mammals according to the requirements of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) – Quebec Region.
Every year, incidents occur involving marine mammals: accidental entanglement, live cetacean strandings, animals found outside their normal range, orphaned or sick animals, animal carcasses, etc. Responding to such incidents is complex, involves several stakeholders, requires effective coordination, sparks public interest, provides a unique opportunity to gather scientific data, and affects several species at risk.
The need to come to the aid of marine mammals in distress for ecological, scientific and humanitarian reasons is well known, and DFO must reassure the public that their concerns about marine mammals are taken into consideration.
With those concerns and its conservation mandate in mind, DFO must award a service contract for the implementation and management of a specialized system for processing calls. With such a system, the public will have a way to immediately contact specialists regarding incidents involving dead or distressed marine mammals, and a quick and appropriate response can be launched.
PERIOD OF CONTRACT
The Contract period is from November 1, 2016, to October 31, 2017.
The Contractor grants to Canada the irrevocable option to extend the term of the resulting Contract by up to two (2) additional one (1) year period(s) under the same conditions.
