The designated area of service that will be covered by this supply arrangement will be referred to as "Eastern Canada" which will include the Province of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland/Labrador. The Contractor’s ceiling pricing for those areas should be included.
The conditions of any contract awarded under the Supply Arrangement will be in accordance with the Supply Arrangement issued to each successful bidder.

The established list of Contractors will remain in effect until March 31, 2013, with an option to extend for up to three additional periods of one year each.

Two Phase Procurement Process
It is Canada's intention, by issuance of this Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA) over the
Government Electronic Tendering Service (MERX), to establish/maintain a List of Qualified Suppliers for Interpretive Writing. Qualification will be based entirely on meeting the mandatory requirements of this RFSA.
Phase 1: is the action of soliciting offers from suppliers of Interpretive Writing from which
Canada intends to establish Request for Supply Arrangements with those Contractors whose offer meets all the mandatory requirements of this RFSA.
Phase 2: is the action of soliciting proposals from suppliers, qualified through the Phase 1 activity, for requirements identified on an as-and-when-requested basis by Parks Canada. Any contracts that arise from the Phase 2 activity must satisfy the requirements of the solicitation. To solicit proposals for a particular requirement, Parks Canada will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) (9400-3) to suppliers from the List of Qualified Suppliers for Interpretive Writing. Suppliers must submit their proposals according to the instructions in each RFP. The proposals will be evaluated by Canada according to the method stated in the RFP. The successful bidder will be awarded a contract (pwgsc-tpsgc 9170). Each contract awarded will incorporate by reference, all the terms and conditions set out in the Supply Arrangement.
