Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is requesting Industry feedback regarding the Next Generation Fighting Vehicle (NGFV) project for the Department of National Defence (DND) for use by the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). 


a) Provide information with Industry about the NGFV requirements; 

b)  Seek initial input from Industry on potential options and availability of technology to meet NGFV project requirements including those related to operational requirements, sustainment, cost, Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) policy and schedule.

This RFI is one step of the Industry Engagement process. The intent, following receipt of RFI responses from Industry, is to continue interactive engagement with Industry throughout the project phases leading to the RFP in accordance with the Defence Procurement Strategy.

1. To augment the information being requested in this RFI, there will be an Industry Vehicle Demonstration to provide an opportunity for DND to view the vehicles and allow industry to present its vehicle in an interactive environment.  Participation in this activity is voluntary and non-participation will not prejudice the follow-on procurement.  The Vehicle Demonstration is simply to solicit feedback from industry with respect to the matters described in this RFI.
2. Respondents interested in participating in this specific engagement must complete Annex D and return it the PSPC Contract Authority along with their submission responses no later than the RFI closing date.
3. Participation at the Vehicle Demonstration will be limited to five (5) respondents and preference will be given to those vehicles that best meet the High Level Mandatory Requirements (HLMRs) detailed at Annex A and that are mature and at the highest Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs).  Canada reserves the right to invite more than five (5) respondents if it’s deemed to be in the best interest of the project. 

4. The Vehicle Demonstration will take place during the period of 21 October to 1 November 2019 (tentative). The Vehicle Demonstration will be held at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, Ontario.  Respondents who wish to be selected for participation in this engagement will do so at their own expense and will not be reimbursed for any of their expenses including but not limited to travel, vehicle shipping, fuel, insurance or damages to the vehicle(s)
