THIS IS A REFRESH OF SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT # EP361-130020/000/CZ.

Enquiries on the Request for Supply Arrangement document were
addressed during the original solicitation period in 2013. The
Contracting Authority will not respond to new enquiries. For
your information and to assist you in preparing your
arrangement, copies of the Questions and Answers released during
the original solicitation period are available upon request.

This refresh permits new suppliers to submit arrangements and
potentially become Supply Arrangement Holders for National
Advertising Services. 

New fully compliant suppliers will be issued Supply Arrangements
and their names will be added to the existing Supply Arrangement
Holder lists on the condition that they meet all of the
requirements of the original Request for Supply Arrangements.

THERE ARE NO SECURITY REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS
SOLICITATION.
NO TRADE AGREEMENTS APPLY TO THIS SOLICITATION.

Requirement 
Through this Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA), the
Department of Public Works and Government Services Canada
(PWGSC) is looking to establish an unlimited number of Supply
Arrangements for Advertising Services.

Advertising is an important way for the GC to communicate with
Canadians. The GC uses advertising to support social, economic
and cultural objectives of the government to ensure that
Canadians are informed of services, programs, initiatives and
policies. Advertising is also an essential tool used to alert
the population about environmental and public health and safety
issues, invite consultation on matters of public interest, and
notify people about their legal rights and obligations. All
federal advertising is conducted in accordance with the
Communications Policy of the Government of Canada.

Sourcing
Canadian Content Policy - The requirement is limited to Canadian
goods and/or services.
Trade Agreements - This procurement is not subject to any trade
agreements.

Note to Bidders
Bidders are reminded that in order to ensure a clear delineation
between the GC's media buying agency (contract no.
EP361-091572/001/CZ) and the GC's creative and planning
agencies, an exclusivity clause presently forms part of the
media buying agency contract.  The media buying agency, and as
applicable, its parent company, its subsidiaries corporation,
and any body corporate of the Contractor's immediate family will
not be eligible to bid on other GC procurement contracts
relating to advertising.  The resulting Supply Arrangements fall
under this exclusivity provision as business related to
advertising.  Further, any subcontractor proposed by an offeror
on the RFSA will be bound by the same terms and conditions as
the Bidder.

Canada reserves the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
procurement.

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.

Evaluation Process
Bidders MUST meet all the mandatory requirements of the RFSA. 
No further consideration will be given to bidders not meeting
all the mandatory criteria.  The mandatory criteria include:
providing three (3) examples of advertising/marketing campaigns
which were completed within the last three (3) years of the bid
closing date.
identifying the key personnel who would be assigned to several
key categories
complying with the certification requirements described in the
RFP.

Bidders that meet all mandatory criteria will be evaluated
further using point-rated criteria.

Period of the Supply Arrangement
The period of the Standing Offer will be from date of award to
June 25, 2015 with the possibility of two (2) additional one (1)
year extension periods under the same terms and conditions. A
notice will be posted, once a year during the period of the
Supply Arrangement, on the Government Electronic Tendering
Service (GETS), to allow new suppliers to become qualified.

Basis of Selection
All Suppliers whose arrangement meets both the mandatory and
minimum rated requirements will be recommended for award of a
Supply Arrangement.
