Description

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) : Buyback Program (BBP)

SOLICITATION NUMBER: 0D160-24489/A

THIS REQUEST FOR INFORMATION IS FOR: Public Safety Canada (PS)

PURPOSE OF THIS RFI::

The intent of this RFI is to determine the capacities and capabilities that currently exist within the marketplace to deliver on the notional requirements of the envisioned commodity for the BBP.

OVERVIEW:

PS is responsible for the Buyback Program following the prohibition by the Government of Canada (GoC), on May 1, 2020, of over 1,500 models of assault-style firearms and other weapons.

The primary intent of this program is to safely buy back these newly prohibited firearms (NPFs) from society, while offering fair compensation to businesses and lawful owners impacted by the prohibition. As such, PS is currently examining an array of implementation and delivery solutions, including the potential for contracting out workstreams associated with the Program (as currently envisioned):

• Collection and Transportation
• Tracking
• Storage Solutions
• Package Inspection
• Destruction
• Post-Destruction Recycling

NATURE OF RFI:

This is not a bid solicitation. This RFI will not result in the award of any contract. As a result, potential suppliers of any goods or services described in this RFI should not reserve stock or facilities, nor allocate resources, as a result of any information contained in this RFI. Nor will this RFI result in the creation of any source list. Therefore, whether or not any potential supplier responds to this RFI will not preclude that supplier from participating in any future procurement. Also, the procurement of any of the goods and services described in this RFI will not necessarily follow this RFI. This RFI is simply intended to solicit feedback from industry with respect to the matters described in this RFI.

ENQUIRIES:

All enquiries and other communications related to this RFI and associated Industry Engagement activities must be directed exclusively to Public Works and Government Services Canada. Since this is not a bid solicitation, Canada 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: TPSGC.PAPDR-APBBP.PWGSC@tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca

NOTE TO BIDDERS:
