Description

This amendment is raised to publish the RFI Feedback Summary, which is submitted as an attachment.  Although the publication of this document officially close the Engagement Process, please do not hesitate to contact with the Contracting Authority should you have any comments with regards to the document or the process in general.

***********************

The Government of Canada (GoC) is exploring options for a potential Canadian-led project, with potential international partners, to satisfy requirements in Satellite Communications (SATCOM), Earth Observation (EO) coverage of the Arctic, and Space Situational Awareness (SSA).

The ‘’Polar Communications and Weather’’ (PCW) Project will explore technical solutions but is not yet an approved Government Project.  

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) is releasing this Request For Information (RFI) on behalf of Canada to:

•	inform industry of the Whole of Government (WoG) proposed PCW Project;
•	seek industry comments on the Business Requirements (BR); and
•	seek viable, innovative technical and Project Delivery Model(s) to meet or exceed the DRAFT PCW BR.

The RFI results will be used to inform the GoC on the technical options, business viability, potential Project Delivery Model(s), costs, and risks for industry to support such a project.  Based on this information and other considerations, Canada may decide to proceed with the project or not, and this decision may lead to a competitive procurement for project implementation;

The information provided by Respondents may be used to refine the PCW procurement strategy, BR, Project cost envelope, and timeline. The information gathered through this RFI may be used to assist in the development of a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the implementation of an Arctic-focused communications and meteorological capability.
