Trade Agreement: NONE Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: N/A - P&A/LOI Only Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: Industry Workshop on April 11, 2012 for the Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) Aircraft Replacement Project INTRODUCTION On August 16, 2011, the Government of Canada sought the industry's feedback on the best approach to deliver FWSAR capability. Industry positively responded by attending a plenary session, a number of one-on-one meetings with Government representatives, and by submitting discussion papers. All of this information has been considered and some key decisions have been made on the way forward. This procurement is subject to national security exception and is, therefore, excluded from all of the obligations of the trade agreements. FWSAR SECRETARIAT The overall FWSAR industry engagement strategy will provide an opportunity to industry to have a voice during the definition process. A FWSAR Secretariat has been set up to oversee all procurement elements of the project including the industry engagement. The Secretariat will be the cornerstone for collecting and processing information from industry on the FWSAR project. In addition, PWGSC has retained the services of an independent third party Fairness Monitor to observe the fainess, openness and integrity of the competitive solicitation process, including the industry engagement phase. WORKSHOPS The FWSAR engagement process will include multiple workshops with industry in the development of the tendering documents including, but not limited to, technical specification requirements, performance level definition, Canadian industry participation, Industrial and Regional Benefits requirements, as well as contractor selection process and evaluation criteria. The total number of industry engagement workshops will be determined based on Industry feedback and FWSAR Project Office requirements. The FWSAR industry engagement may also seek the participation from industry specializing in aircraft components, sub-systems or associated services. INDUSTRY FEEDBACK Workshop attendance is not the only mechanism available to industry to participate. Not participating in workshops will not exclude any interested supplier from responding to the formal solicitation. Industry is invited to provide comments and questions on draft documentation that could be posted on MERX or on the FWSAR Website. FWSAR Website will be regularly updated to circulate FWSAR information. Website http://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/app-acq/stamgp-lamsmp/svtvn-rscfw-en g.html INVITATION - APRIL 11, 2012 The Government of Canada is now ready to resume industry engagement on FWSAR and will start by holding an Industry Workshop on April 11, 2012. For this workshop, attendance will be restricted to companies who can identify themselves and can attest their capability of playing a significant role in the context of the Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue as an aircraft provider, or as a Canadian in-service support integrator. A secondary objective is to invite participants to propose other topics of interest that may be scheduled in future workshop events. WORSHOP REGISTRATION Industry representatives that are interested in attending the April 11, 2012 Workshop must complete and return the form provided in attachment to the FWSAR Secretariat. Please submit before Close of Business, March 28, 2012. Further details on timing and location will be provided upon registration, and registrants are requested to indicate their linguistic preference (French or English) for correspondence. INDUSTRY ENGAGEMENT RULES The FWSAR Secretariat is publishing a set of rules that shall govern the FWSAR Industry Engagement activities, until a formal FWSAR Request for Proposals is released on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (MERX). The Industry Engagement Rules are in attachment to this LOI. A duly signed copy must be returned and submitted with the registration form.
