Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: CONDUCT AIRBORNE BATHYMETRIC LIDAR F5962-121020/B Collier, Susan Telephone No. - (902) 496-5350 Fax No. - (902) 496-5016 All vendors currently qualified are not required to resubmit the RFSA for the extension period. All vendors currently qualified under Supply Arrangement F5962-121020/A are not required to re-submit the RFSA for the extension period. If you are unable to provide services in any particular region please provide details to the Contracting Authority identified in the RFSA documents. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has a requirement to establish a Supply Arrangement for as-and-when-required services to conduct Airborne Bathymetric LIDAR surveys throughout Canada and deliver fully processed and verified hydrographic survey data which will be used to update CHS nautical charts. PWGSC intends to issue multiple Regional Master Supply Arrangements. The Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) is a division of the Science Branch of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Under the Oceans Act, the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans has the authority to conduct hydrographic surveys and to produce and distribute nautical charts and other nautical publications within Canadian territorial waters. The CHS must adhere to rigorous, internationally-recognized standards and guidelines when conducting hydrographic surveys. CHS seeks to implement an integrated multi-platform approach to Hydrographic surveying in Canada's navigable waters. This allows for the delivery of a flexible, affordable and sustainable hydrographic survey program to meet Canada's foreseeable hydrographic requirements. Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) Bathymetric Surveys are part of this multi-platform approach. The established list of Contractors will remain in effect until July 11, 2015, with an option to extend and/or will remain valid until such time as Canada no longer considers it to be advantageous to use it. The requirement is subject to the provisions of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT). It is PWGSC's intention to issue one (1) Regional Master Supply Arrangement that covers all of Canada. The Supply Arrangement will be accessed through one of the seven Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) offices: Pacific Region, Central and Arctic Region, Quebec Region, Atlantic Region, Newfoundland Region and National Capital Region. A Notice will be posted "once a year" on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS) to allow new suppliers to become qualified. Existing qualified suppliers, who have been issued a supply arrangement, will not be required to submit a new arrangement. There is no pricing requested in this document as it will be used to pre-qualify bidders (by issuing Supply Arrangements) for future Request for Proposals (RFPs). This Request for SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT (RFSA) consists of issuing a number of Supply Arrangements (SA) for Fisheries and Oceans within Canada . This Supply Arrangement (SA) is an agreement between Suppliers (SA Holders) and Canada for the provision of Airborne Bathymetric LIDAR surveys throughout Canada and deliver fully processed and verified hydrographic survey data which will be used to update CHS nautical charts on an as and when requested basis. A SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT is a list of pre-qualified suppliers identified as potential sources from which PWGSC or other government departments and agencies, can obtain firm prices quotations on specific requirements. Supply Arrangements include a set of predetermined terms and conditions that will apply to any subsequent contracts. Supply Arrangements resulting from this RFSA are for the exclusive use of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, within Canada only. The intent of a SA is to establish a framework with a Supplier to permit the expeditious processing of legally binding contracts for Airborne Bathymetric LIDAR surveys throughout Canada and deliver fully processed and verified hydrographic survey data which will be used to update CHS nautical charts. SAs establish a set of procurement procedures and include a minimum set of terms and conditions which will apply to any resulting contract(s). The SA method of supply will be used to satisfy "as and when requested" requirements of authorized departments and agencies. Through this process, PWGSC establishes SAs with suppliers, to provide specific services and or goods during a specified period. The SA is not in itself a Contract, but rather a base document that forms part of the future Request for Proposal (RFP) and resulting contract. When being issued a SA, the offeror accepts the obligation to provide the specified goods in accordance with the SA, under any resulting contracts that may be awarded. Any resulting Contracts will be established as a result of a RFP. These RFPs will specify the specific requirements of the authorized departments and/or agencies, and may contain additional terms and conditions that the bidder must meet. This SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT process has two stages: Stage 1 is the Request for SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT (RFSA) that results in the issuance of a SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT to offeror(s) and the creation of a SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT Holder List. Stage 2 is the Request for Proposal (RFP) to SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT Holders and may result in the issuance of a Contract, for specific products to be delivered to the designated location. For Stage 1, a competitive RFSA is posted to MERX with information regarding the requirements. Offerors are requested to submit a proposal that meets the mandatory requirements of the RFSA. An evaluation of the offers is completed and the responsive offeror(s) will be issued a SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT (SA) for Airborne Bathymetric LIDAR surveys throughout Canada and deliver fully processed and verified hydrographic survey data which will be used to update CHS nautical charts on an as and when requested basis. All responsive offerors are included on the SA Holders list. For Stage 2, in accordance with the SUPPLY ARRANGEMENT issued in Stage 1, a Requests for Proposal (RFP) is sent to one or more suppliers on the SA Holder List depending on the dollar value of the requirement. Based on the evaluation procedures and basis of selection outlined in the RFP, a resulting Contract is awarded. The dollar value of the requirement will determine whether authorized departments/agencies or PWGSC will conduct the Stage 2 process. Departments/Agencies may issue, under their own contracting authority, contracts for requirements not exceeding their financial limitation up to a maximum of $400,000.00 (including all applicable taxes). Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) will issue Contracts for requirements that exceed the financial limitations of Departments. Individual contracts issued subsequent to the stage 2 process of the SA will be in accordance with the terms and conditions of the SA. This Public Works and Government Service Canada office provides procurement services to the public in English.
