All Offerors, including the existing NMSO Holders, are required to respond to this solicitation E60SQ-120001/H.

This refresh permits new suppliers to submit offers and potentially become Standing Offer Holders for Commercial Satellite Imagery Products or Data.

New fully compliant Offerors will be issued Standing Offers on the condition that they meet all of the requirements of the Request for Standing Offer.

All new Satellite-Sensors or Constellation-Sensors and all new products must comply with the requirements of this RFSO.

All Offerors, including existing NMSO holders, submitting an offer in response to this Request for Standing Offer must self-identify in accordance with the following selection options. Offers should do so by marking an “X” in only one of the following boxes:

[ ] The Offeror hereby self identifies as an existing NMSO holder under PWGSC File No. 003st.E60SQ-120001 for Commercial Satellite Imagery Products or Data, and is not proposing any updates to pricing, products, and/or adding new Satellite-Sensors or Constellation-Sensors and associated imagery products to its existing NMSO # ___________ (Offeror to identify its NMSO number).

Canada has a requirement, on an "as and when requested" basis, for commercial satellite imagery products and data. The imagery, associated metadata and associated ancillary information for Satellite-Sensors and Constellation-Sensors is to be supplied from one of several Product Categories and according to one of several Priority Categories and License Classes. More information can be found in Annex A, Requirement, of the Request for Standing Offer (RFSO). The objective is to obtain satellite imagery Products from commercially available Product lists involving no customization by the Offeror. Both historical data from satellite operator archives and new acquisitions may be required.

Mandatory and Optional Products

It is mandatory that Offerors provide a minimum of one Basic Product for every Satellite-Sensor or Constellation-Sensor offered in accordance with Article 4, Product Categories, of Annex A Requirement.

Similarly, if the Offeror has a constellation of identical satellites, then a minimum of one Basic Product is required for the constellation. The Offeror may provide additional Basic Products and Optional Products in their offer.

This RFSO allows an Offeror to be:

(a) a Satellite Operator Agency (SOA): An SOA may name one or more Canadian Distributors in its offer. The SOA may also name the Distributor’s Canadian Reseller(s). Canada will only consider a Foreign Distributor or Foreign Reseller if a Canadian Distributor or Canadian Reseller does not offer the satellite imagery products or data.

Or

(b) a Distributor authorized by an SOA(s) with rights to license the distribution rights of the satellite imagery products or data: A Distributor may submit an offer for one or more Satellite-Sensors or Constellation-Sensors from one or more SOAs.

Or

(c) a Reseller authorized by the Distributor who has the rights to sublicense the distribution rights of the imagery products or data: A reseller may submit an offer for one or more Satellite-Sensors or Constellation-Sensors from one or more SOAs.
