The National Capital Commission wishes to retain the services of firms that can provide CCTV, Inspection, repairs and sewer lining services on an "as and when requested" basis under a Standing Offer Agreement (SOA). The locations of the sites would be within the National Capital Region in the provinces of Ontario (Ottawa) and Québec (Gatineau).

One SOA will be awarded for the Ontario side (Ottawa) and another SOA awarded for the Quebec side (Gatineau).

Scope of Work:

The work under this SOA shall include but not be limited to the provision of all labour, materials, accessories, equipment, tools, transportation, services and technical competence for performing the following work in strict accordance with the specifications and subject to the terms and conditions of the contract:

  1. Sewer inspection using closed circuit television inspection (CCTV) of sewers 2,100 mm in diameter or less at specified locations within the NCC lands. The Contractor will not be required to clean sewers before conducting any sewer inspection unless directed by the NCC;
  2. Cleaning of Sanitary sewers, storm sewers, combined sewers and Culverts including removal of all silt, debris, grease and gravel where deemed necessary by the NCC. 
  3. CCTV Inspection Septic Tank
  4. Cleaning of Manhole and Catchbasin sumps.
  5. Reports containing paper report along with video media as specified herein.
  6. Sewer spot repairs
  7. Sewer lining

One method of supply used by the NCC to satisfy the requirements of identified internal users is to arrange a Standing Offer Agreement (SOA) to provide goods, services or both to the NCC during a specified period. The identified internal users to be served may then be a delegated purchasing authority and may access the source of supply directly, as and when requested, by issuing purchase orders detailing the exact quantities of goods or services they wish to order from the Offeror at a particular time during the effective period of the Offeror’s offer and in accordance with the predetermined conditions. This method of supply is particularly useful in acquiring frequently ordered commercially and non-commercially available goods or services when the total volume or value of goods or level of services that may be required by one or more identified users can be estimated beforehand, but it is not possible at the outset to identify the exact requirements for any given user at a specific time in the future. The NCC foresees a potential need for CCTV INSPECTION, SERVICES, REPAIRS AND SEWER LINING FOR VARIOUS LOCATIONS IN THE NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION, as more particularly stated herein and in the attached; you are hereby invited to provide to the NCC a Standing Offer. If you wish to submit an offer you are required to do so, on the enclosed forms and format. Please be advised that the quantity of goods and/or services and the estimated expenditure specified in the attached are only an approximation of requirements given in good faith. The making of a standing offer by the Offeror shall not constitute an agreement by the NCC to order any or all of the said goods and/or services. The NCC may make one or several purchase orders against a Standing Offer, each such purchase orders constituting an acceptance of said Standing Offer for the part of the said goods or services described in the purchase order. A request does not commit the NCC to authorize the utilization of a Standing Offer or to pay any cost incurred in the submission of offers, or cost incurred in making necessary studies for the preparation thereof, or to procure or contract for any goods or services. The NCC reserves the right to reject or authorize for utilization any offer in whole or in part, with or without further discussion or negotiation.

PERIOD OF THE STANDING OFFER AGREEMENT:The duration of the SOA is for a period of four (4) years from the date of award
