W0114-13Q621/A

An ACAN is a public notice indicating to the supplier community
that a department or agency intends to award a contract for
goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier,
thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in
bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no
supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the
requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date
stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed
with the award.

plotter with included dust extraction unit, Starter pack and RF

Defence, Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Kingston.

LPKF Laser and Electronics North America, 
12555 SW Leveton Dr.
Tualatin, Oregon 
97062, United States

Government Contracts Regulations (GCR) and Limited Tendering
Reasons:

GCR:  Section 6 (d) Only one person is capable of performing the
contract:

NAFTA:  Article 1016: Limited Tendering Procedures

(2b)

Where, for works of art, or for reasons connected with the
protection of patents, copyrights or other exclusive rights, or
proprietary information or where there is an absence of
competition for technical reasons, the goods or services can be
supplied only by a particular supplier and no reasonable
alternative or substitute exists; 

(2d) 

For additional deliveries by the original supplier that are
intended either as replacement parts or continuing services for
existing supplies, services or installations, or as the
extension of existing supplies, services or installations, where
a change of supplier would compel the entity to procure
equipment or services not meeting requirements of
interchangeability with already existing equipment or services,
including software to the extent that the initial procurement of
the software was covered by this Chapter;

AIT:  Article 506 

(12a) 

To ensure compatibility with existing products, to recognize
exclusive rights, such as exclusive licences, copyright and
patent rights, or to maintain specialized products that must be
maintained by the manufacturer or its representative;

(12b)

Where there is an absence of competition for technical reasons
and the goods or services can be supplied only by a particular
supplier and no alternative or substitute exists;

The plotter must be delivered by no later than March 28, 2013.

Justification for the Proposed Supplier:

This requirement is subject to limited tendering due to the fact
that this product is intended to replace an existing circuit
board plotter, and CFB Kingston must continue using the same
manufacturer's design of plotter to support their existing
infrastructure's operational requirements.

The original plotter being replaced is the ProtoMat 92S,
originally purchased in the 96/97 fiscal year, and has been used
for 15 years in the design of microwave antennas. If a different
manufacturer's model of circuit board plotter were to be used,
those 15 years' worth of antenna designs would have to be
re-engineered to accommodate a different machine, and the
existing staff would have to be re-trained in the use of a new
model of plotter. The results achieved by the current design of
antenna using the existing circuit boards plotter would also be
impossible to duplicate with another machine.

The change to a different manufacturer's model of circuit board
plotter is both cost-prohibitive and inefficient, and substitute
products will not be considered in this case.

SUPPLIERS' RIGHT TO SUBMIT A STATEMENT OF CAPABILITIES:

to provide the services and/or goods described herein, may
submit a statement of capabilities in writing to the contact
