The period of contract is from May 1, 2018 to March 21, 2019, with four (4) addditional one (1) year option periods.

The requirement is subject the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).

The requirement is limited to Canadian goods and/or services.

Basis of Selection

1. To be declared responsive, a bid must: 

a. comply with all the requirements of the bid solicitation; and
b. meet all mandatory criteria; and
c. obtain the required minimum points specified for each criterion for the technical evaluation, and 
d. obtain the required minimum of minimum number of points overall for the technical evaluation criteria which are subject to point rating. 
e. Meet all demonstration criteria (if requested to a demonstration)

2. Bids not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) or (d) or (e) will be declared non-responsive. 
3. The selection will be based on the highest responsive combined rating of technical merit and price. The ratio will be 60% for the technical merit and 40% for the price. 
4. To establish the technical merit score, the overall technical score for each responsive bid will be determined as follows: total number of points obtained / maximum number of points available multiplied by the ratio of 60%.
5. To establish the pricing score, each responsive bid will be prorated against the lowest evaluated price and the ratio of 40%.
6. For each responsive bid, the technical merit score and the pricing score will be added to determine its combined rating. 
Neither the responsive bid obtaining the highest technical score nor the one with the lowest evaluated price will necessarily be accepted. The responsive bid with the highest combined rating of technical merit and price will be recommended for award of a contract.
