Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: The bidder must supply Canadian goods and/or services Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: Yes Nature of Requirements: Quantitative & Qualitative Research - Nunavut Inuit Labour Force Analysis - Inuit in Nunavut and Public Sector Employment G9292-151383/A Mondoux, Glenn Telephone No. - (613) 991-5791 ( ) Fax No. - (613) 991-5870 Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) on behalf of Employment and Social Development Canada has a requirement for the provision of Public Opinion Research Services. The objective of the public opinion research is to build upon existing data on the availability, interest and level of preparedness for public sector employment of the Inuit of Nunavut (specifically those who are beneficiaries under the Nunavut Land Claim Agreement (NLCA)). 1. Background Information In 1993, the Government of Canada (GoC), the Government of Nunavut (GN) and Nunavut Tunngavik Inc (NTI) signed the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA), and the Nunavut Act leading to the creation of the Territory of Nunavut on April 1st, 1999. For more information: · NLCA: http://www.gov.nu.ca/sites/default/files/Nunavut_Land_Claims_Agre ement.pdf Article 23 of the NLCA reflects the aspirational "objective" of increasing Inuit participation in government employment among NLCA beneficiaries to a representative level." A "representative level" is defined in the NLCA as "a level of Inuit employment within Government reflecting the ratio of Inuit to the total population in the Nunavut Settlement Area; this definition will apply within all occupational groupings and grade levels". The Inuit population in Nunavut is young and rapidly growing and their continuing educational and skills development is central to the success of the economy. Research on the availability, interest and preparedness of Inuit for participation in public sector employment will contribute to the objectives of the NLCA as well as Employment and Social Development Canada's central mandate of improving labour market outcomes for all Canadians. 2. Objective The objective of the public opinion research (POR) conducted under this request for proposal is to build upon existing data on the availability, interest and level of preparedness of NLCA beneficiaries for public sector employment. The information gathered will be used to inform programs and services that support Inuit participation in public sector employment. Research on the perceptions, attitudes and barriers related to education, training and labour market participation may help to inform understanding of the availability, interest and preparedness of Inuit for employment within the public sector. 3. Target Population Males and females in the working-age population of Nunavut (those aged 15 to 64, as defined by the Census) who are beneficiaries under the NLCA. 4. Requirement and Proposed Methodology This research is being conducted according to: · Part 3 (23.3.1) of the NLCA, which states that the Government shall "undertake a detailed analysis of the labour force of the Nunavut Settlement Area to determine the availability, interest and level of preparedness of Inuit for government employment. The data shall be maintained and updated on an on-going basis." · The following Communications Policy of Canada's policy statements: o "Consult the public, listen to and take account of people's interests and concerns when establishing priorities, developing policies, and planning programs and services;" o "Ensure that institutions of the Government of Canada are visible, accessible and accountable to the public they serve;" and o "Identify and address communication needs and issues routinely in the development, implementation and evaluation of policies, programs, services and initiatives." Approach: In order to gauge the availability, interest, and level of preparedness of NLCA beneficiaries for government employment, the approach must detail appropriate methodologies and sampling/sample size based on the specificity of the target audience, geographic scope, and research objectives. The proposed approach must involve strategic choices in relation to (a) the populations that can be effectively covered and (b) the type of techniques that are practical given the geographic location, the ease/difficulty of conducting the research, and the suitability of given techniques for the target audience. Methodology: The desired approach should include - but is not limited to - a quantitative survey component with a minimum of 500 completes with the target audience, supported by cognitive pre-testing of the questionnaire with the target population (in English and appropriate languages/dialects of Nunavut, with capacity to conduct the survey in French if applicable). The project authority is open to bidders proposing other approaches/methodologies which support the research objectives. The supplier should also address barriers/challenges to low response rates and detail solutions to keep them as high as possible, and note the expected response rate. Research Instruments The supplier and the project authority representatives will work to develop research instruments that represent the best possible approach to determine the levels of availability, interest and level of preparedness of Inuit for government employment in the Territory of Nunavut. Potential considerations include (but are not limited to): · Length; · Clarity and appropriate language; · Verifying how expressions translate into appropriate languages/dialects of Nunavut; and · Ensuring that the research instruments resonate with the target audience. Some of the Mandatory requirements are: Proposed Team The Bidder must identify a minimum of two (2) proposed researchers/consultants (one principal, one backup) to work on the project, and submit a Curriculum Vitae (CV) for each person identified. The CV's submitted will be evaluated in the rated requirements under R5 Proposed Team. Project Experience To demonstrate their experience, Bidders must provide, for each researcher/consultant identified in M2 Proposed Team, details on a minimum of two (2) to a maximum of four (4) previous projects. At least fifty per cent of projects put forward by the bidder must include a quantitative research component. Projects must have been conducted over the past eight (8) years (from the closing date for this RFP). All cited project experience must be from projects which included a research component with members of Canada's aboriginal communities and at least one (1) quantitative project must have been conducted in Canada's North (North of the 60th parallel). Projects submitted will be evaluated in the rated requirements under R5 (c) Knowledge and Project Experience. Timeframe The Bidder must demonstrate in their work plan submitted, that they can complete the project and submit the final report by March 31st, 2015. Inuit Benefit Plan The Bidder must include an Inuit Benefit Plan (IBP) as part of their proposal. The IBP must demonstrate the suppliers' use of the employment of Inuit labour, engagement of Inuit professional services, or use of suppliers that are Inuit or Inuit firms, in carrying out the Work outlined in this request for proposals. Delivery Date: Above-mentioned The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement. Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
