Suppliers are to note that this is not a tender process, nor a Request for Proposal. The issuance of this Request for Information does not create an obligation for the National Capital Commission (NCC) to issue or negotiate a subsequent contract, and does not bind the NCC legally or otherwise to enter into a contract or to accept any suggestions from suppliers.

The NCC’s Plan for Canada’s Capital, 2017–2067 [LINK] presents a long-term vision for the future of the region. The Plan offers direction for the Capital’s development and a framework for land use and projects that will be implemented on federal land, as well as provides a platform to leverage the NCC’s commitment on sustainability, climate change adaptation, and mitigation. Under that Plan, various supporting strategies identify more detailed policies for specific areas of the NCC’s mandate, such as the Sustainable Development Strategy, 2018–2023 [LINK]. This strategy provides a focused and innovative agenda for environmental leadership in Canada’s Capital Region and serves as an overarching element to be included in all of the NCC’s plans, strategies, policies and operations. The NCC is one of only two federal crown corporations to sign onto the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) and work with community partners for a green and inclusive region.

Transportation emissions pose one of the greatest challenges in achieving the Government of Canada’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction targets. Contributing to the network of rechargeable stations enables electric vehicle drivers to contribute to tackling this challenge every time they plug in. The NCC promotes sustainable transportation and mobility in the National Capital Region and, consequently, wants to install up to twenty (20) electric vehicle charging stations at NCC parking lots in Ontario and Quebec by end of 2021.

This initiative will drive innovation to reduce carbon emissions, support renewable and low-carbon energies, and the development of clean technologies.

The NCC will not reimburse any organization for expenses incurred in responding to this RFI.

All enquiries and other communications related to this RFI shall be directed exclusively to the NCC Contracting Authority. Since this is not a process of notifying qualified bidders, NCC will not necessarily respond to enquiries in writing or by circulating answers to all respondents; however, respondents with questions regarding this RFI may direct their enquiries to:

Please ensure the subject line states: SJ003 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

The closing date for this RFI is 11:59pm on February 18, 2021 EST, the NCC won’t accept submissions shared after the fact.

Responses may be submitted in French or English, at the preference of the respondent.
