Nature of Requirements: 
Fire Rescue Television Digital Signage Training & Messaging
System


The Department of National Defence's Fire Marshal (CFFM)
requires a system to bring an industry specific digital signage
network to the CFFM Office and the National Defense Fire Service
(NDFS) locations across Canada.  The CFFM is diligently working
on improving communications to ensure all fire personnel are
aware of new policies and general information impacting how fire
protection is conducted on bases, units and wings. 

Since a survey was conducted, the CFFM has created and
implemented annual communication plans, which have helped create
clear and consistent messaging, but failed in terms of
addressing the main issue, which is the communication medium. 
As most firefighters do not conduct their daily work using a
computer, typical communication approaches used in the
Department are fruitless.  Moreover, many of our fire
departments have moved to different shifts, further compounding
the problem.  A novel directed communication strategy is
required to impart firefighters with key information required to
conduct their job.
The CFFM has identified a medium that has the potential to
deliver messaging to all firefighters in a timely and efficient
manner.  This novel concept is called Fire Rescue TV and is
essentially a web-based closed caption TV, which offers
controlled messaging directly to all firefighters via internet. 
Televisions are installed in key locations within every fire
department, and are scheduled to deliver information to viewers
via a multi-zone digital signage.  In addition to real-time
information, the system can be used for training purposes and
delivering scheduled fire related theoretical PowerPoint or
video training material.  This will include variation options to
deal with time-zone and language challenges.  The software will
be managed by the CFFM, but will also search, assemble and
display pertinent fire protection policy new equipment
introductions, and general trade information, based on
pre-determined parameters.  Finally, the information displayed
on the closed caption TV can also be accessed from computers,
for those that have the option. 
An ACAN with Fire Rescue TV is being requested because it is the
only known supplier with the capability to meet our requirement.
 Therefore, you are hereby notified that the government intends
to solicit a bid and negotiate with one firm only as identified
above.

The requirement is subject to the provisions of the North
American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Canada-Chile Free
Trade Agreement (CCFTA), Canada Panama, Canada Colombia and the
Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).

Suppliers who consider themselves fully qualified and available
to provide the services/goods described herein may submit a
statement of capabilities in writing to the contracting
authority identified in this notice on or before the closing
date of this notice. The statement of capabilities must clearly
demonstrate how the supplier meets the advertised requirements.

You are hereby notified that the government intends to negotiate
with one firm only as identified above. Should you have any
questions concerning this requirement, contact the contracting
officer identified above.

An Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) allows departments and
agencies to post a notice, for no less than fifteen (15)
calendar days, indicating to the supplier community that it
intends to award a good, service or construction contract to a
pre-identified contractor. If no other supplier submits, on or
before the closing date, a Statement of Capabilities that meets
the requirements set out in the ACAN, the contracting authority
may then proceed with the award.  However, should a Statement of
Capabilities be found to meet the requirements set out in the
ACAN, then the contracting authority will proceed to a full
tendering process.

Suppliers who consider themselves fully qualified and available
to provide the services/goods described herein, may submit a
statement of capabilities in writing to the contact person
identified in this Notice on or before the closing date of this
Notice. The statement of capabilities must clearly demonstrate
how the supplier meets the advertised requirements.

The PWGSC file number, the contracting officer's name and the
closing date of the ACAN must appear on the outside of the
envelope in block letters or, in the case of a facsimile
transmission, on the covering page.

The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
procurement.

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
