1. Request for Information

This pre-solicitation announcement is part of an Industry Engagement process by which Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is requesting Industry feedback to assist with the reformulation of the Site Support Services requirement for the Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Alert located in Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, on behalf of the Department of National Defence (DND).

The objective of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit relevant feedback that could enable effective and economical sustainment of the delivery of the required Site Support Services at CFA Alert.

PSPC intends to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) on behalf of DND in spring 2020.

In advance of the RFP, PSPC is seeking information and feedback from industry, on their interest, capacity and ability to provide site support services as described in the RFI and the subsequent draft RFP to be posted spring 2019. Feedback is also being solicited regarding the procurement approach and methodology.

The RFI provides instructions for industry who are interested in participating in this engagement process. Participation in the engagement process is not a requirement to submit a proposal to the upcoming RFP.

2. Proposed Engagement Process

Engagement Strategy

Four phases are planned for the Industry Engagement process. However, as the process evolves, additional activities could be incorporated into the engagement schedule or engagement phases may be combined, modified, or eliminated depending on timelines and feedback from industry.
