****** The purpose of the amendment 1 is to display the questions and answers ******

The objective of this request for proposals (RFP) is to allow individual organizations and/or consortia to develop and submit proposals to deliver the three service categories described herein to meet Canada’s program and operational requirements. This will in-turn allow Canada to select the service provider, or consortia who represent the best overall value as evaluated using the evaluation factors given in this RFP.

The project requirements have been divided into three service categories:

  • Recruitment and management of pavilion personnel;
  • Cleaning services; and
  • Hospitality and culinary support services.

On January 25, 2019, Canada announced its participation in Expo 2020, to be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), from October 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022. The UAE is hosting this event in the context of the 50th anniversary of the federation of its seven Emirates. This Expo will also be the first to take place in the Middle East and North Africa and South Asia (MENA) region.

Connecting Minds, Creating the Future and its subthemes of Opportunity, Mobility, and Sustainability are the lens through which the Organizer and participants will explore and present possibilities for the future to multinational visitors, both physically and virtually.
