Trade Agreement: CETA / WTO-AGP / NAFTA / CFTA / FTAs with Peru / Colombia / Panama / Korea
Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid
Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall  Proposal
Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No
Nature of Requirements: 


Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) intends to retain a Bridge Engineering consulting firm, with experience in steel truss bridges, in the capacity of Prime Consultant, supported by a multidisciplinary team of Sub-Consultants and specialists including: a Seismic Analysis Engineer, with experience in seismic analysis and selection and replacement of bearings, pins and hanger assemblies; a Transportation Engineer, with experience in traffic/construction staging; and a Wind Loads Analysis Engineer, for the provision of engineering services as described in the Request for Proposal for the Alexandra Bridge Boardwalk Grating Replacement and Articulations Retrofit Project in Ottawa/Gatineau, Ontario/Quebec.

The project scope includes, but is not limited to, the replacement of the upstream boardwalk steel grating deck, rehabilitation of the deck floor system, an articulation retrofit and various steel repairs on the bridge. The class “D” (Indicative) construction budget is estimated at $32.3 M excluding HST. The Prime Consultant will review all of the relevant documentation related to the bridge, recommend further examination as required, proceed with the design, prepare bilingual construction tender documents, and provide construction contract administration including resident site services, while continuously providing cost, scheduling, scope and risk control.

The Proponent shall be a structural engineering firm licensed in the province of Ontario and Quebec, or eligible to be licensed, certified or otherwise authorized to provide the necessary professional services to the full extent that may be required by provincial or territorial law. 

This is a selection process utilizing a Qualification Based Selection (QBS) methodology for the acquisition of Architectural and Engineering Services. The process is structured as follows:

Stage One: Technical Evaluation. One Phase Evaluation

Stage Two: Project Review and Discussion (Step I – Refine Requirements, Step II – Price Proposal)

Stage One is a single phase selection process. The nature of the requirement and the anticipated limited number of response by the industry leads PWGSC to believe that this approach will not unduly force a large number of firms to expend an overall unreasonable amount of effort in response to PWGSC.  

Proponents responding to this RFP are requested to submit a full and complete Technical Proposal in response to Stage One, exclusive of cost, to cover not only the qualifications, experience and organization of the proposed Consultant Team, but also the detailed approach to the work, and the terms offered.  Following evaluation and rating of the Technical Proposals, the Highest Ranked Technical Proponent (HRTP) is determined and remaining proponents are advised of their competitive standing. Debriefs will not be conducted until a contract is awarded.


Before award of a contract, the following conditions must be met:

(a) the Proponent must hold a valid organization security clearance as indicated in Supplementary Conditions SC1;

All inquiries must be sent in writing to the Contracting Authority.
