The Office of the Auditor General of Canada (“OAG”) requires contractors to supply editorial and related professional services on an “as requested and when required basis” as further described in Section 2 (Statement of Work) of this RFSO. These services are comprised of the following three (3) service delivery streams (“Streams”): Stream 1 – English Professional Editing; Stream 2 – English Editorial Project Management; Stream 3 – French Professional Editing.

The OAG conducts independent audits and studies that provide objective information, advice and assurance to Parliament, territorial legislatures, boards of Crown corporations, government and Canadians. The OAG’s head office is located in Ottawa and its four regional offices are located in Vancouver, Edmonton, Montréal and Halifax. Please see for further information about the OAG.

This RFSO describes the process by which a supplier, who is the person or entity submitting a proposal responding to the requirements of the RFSO and having legal capacity to contract (a “Bidder”), may be selected for recommendation of standing offer award in each Stream. Proposals will be evaluated separately and independently for each Stream as further described in Section 3 (Basis and Method of Evaluation) of this RFSO. The maximum total value of any and all standing offers resulting from this RFSO is estimated to be $2,500,000 inclusive of any eligible expenses and applicable taxes, each with a term of three (3) year(s) expiring on or about May 31, 2022, plus an irrevocable option for the OAG to extend the term for up to three (3) additional one (1) year periods.
