Trade Agreement: Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: BACKGROUND As shipping traffic increases globally, the traffic in all Canadian ports, including BC ports such as the Port of Burnaby, the Port of Vancouver and the Port of Prince Rupert, is anticipated to increase. With increased traffic, there is potential increased risk of having a vessel that has lost power or navigational control. This may result in collision or grounding of a vessel leading to spills and causing a significant risk to crew, other vessels, and the marine environment, including the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale population and other species at risk. In response, the Government of Canadas Ocean Protection Plan (OPP) was designed to address these issues and many others to improve marine safety. The Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) will work with Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSCP) to Time Charter two offshore emergency towing vessels for operations on the West Coast to immediately increase its capacity to mitigate risks of disabled large commercial vessels off Canadas coast. SUMMARY OF THE REQUIREMENT The primary deliverable for the Canadian Coast Guard, an agency of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), is the provision of service from two Emergency Towing Vessels (ETV) on a Time Charter basis. It is intended to result in the award of a single contract for 3 years of services commencing on Inspection and Acceptance by Canada of the first available vessel plus 7 one-year irrevocable options allowing Canada to extend the term of the contract. A portion of this procurement is set-aside under the program for Aboriginal Business and includes a mandatory Aboriginal Participation Component (APC). The Buy-in-Canada Policy will apply to all mobilisation, repair, maintenance, refit, outfitting (including dry-docking and conversions) and demobilisation work.
