NOTE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS
This is an open tender. However, it will be set-aside under the Government of Canada’s Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB) if two or more bids have been received by Aboriginal businesses who are certified under the Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB) criteria and who may be listed in the Government of Canada’s Indigenous Business Directory (https://www.aadnc-aandc.gc.ca/eng/1100100033057/1100100033058).

If the bids from the Aboriginal businesses are found to be non-compliant or non-responsive or are withdrawn, such that fewer than two compliant bids from Aboriginal businesses remain, bids from all of the non-Aboriginal businesses that had submitted bids will then be considered by the contracting authority.
