The purpose of this notice is to make Canadian industry aware that PSPC is seeking to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the provision of events management services on behalf of the Department of National Defence (DND) on an as and when requested basis.  The purpose of this RFI is to determine the number of interested and capable suppliers that currently exist.

A copy of the draft statement of work which includes a description of the services that may be required has been attached to this notice.  Interested suppliers should familiarize themselves with the document in order to respond to the questions contained at within this notice.

10.

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) will determine if the company is Not Under FOCI or Under FOCI.  When an organization is determined to be Under FOCI, PWGSC will ascertain if mitigation measures exist or must be put in place by the company so it can be deemed Not Under FOCI through Mitigation.

The proposed requirement will be subject to PSPCs Policy on Canadian Content and therefore will be conditionally limited to suppliers offering Canadian goods and services.

Any requirement for deliveries within CLCAs areas within Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Quebec, or Labrador will have to be treated as a separate procurement outside the resulting Contract.

The requirement is subject to the provisions of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA).
