Trade Agreement: WTO-AGP/NAFTA/AIT/Canada FTAs with Peru/Colombia/Panama Tendering Procedures: Generally only one firm has been invited to bid Attachment: None Non-Competitive Procurement Strategy: Interchangeable Parts Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Vendor Name and Address: Fire Rescue TV 5748 Southern Boulevard Virginia Beach Virginia United States 23462 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. W8484-140017/A Morin, Sylvie Telephone No. - (819) 956-1377 Fax No. - (819) 956-1156 Delivery Date: Above-mentioned 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.
