Nature of Requirements: 

This Request For Information (RFI) has been released as an initial step in an engagement process intended to exploit Canadian industry experience and explore the potential for participation of industry in providing maximum value and capability for the RCAF.
This RFI is intended to be a starting point. It is seen as both an examination of feasibility and a sounding board exercise as we begin the examination of options, exploring what is within the realm of the possible. It is also intended to gauge what interest and capabilities exists for industry participation.  
This is not a bid solicitation, and no contract will result from this RFI.  Requirements are subject to change, which may be as a result of information provided in response to this RFI.  Potential respondents are advised that any information submitted to Canada in response to this RFI may, or may not be used by Canada in the development of a subsequent competitive RFP.
The issuance of this RFI does not create an obligation for Canada to issue a subsequent RFP, and does not bind Canada legally or otherwise, to enter into any agreement or to accept or reject any suggestions. 
There will be no short listing or pre-qualification of firms for purposes of undertaking any future work as a result of this RFI. Similarly, participation in this RFI process is not a condition or prerequisite for participation in any RFP.
Companies responding to this RFI should identify any submitted information that is to be considered as either company confidential, proprietary or if the response contains controlled goods.
All inquiries and other communications related to this RFI shall be directed exclusively to:
