The Government of Canada through this Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA), intends to establish and maintain Supply Arrangements (SAs) with suppliers to provide Marine Technical Services for one or more of the streams identified below for one or more types of vessels and hull construction materials, and for various regions/sub-regions in accordance with the Statement of Requirement (SOR) - Annex A.

Streams of Work:

A. Vessel Condition Survey (includes multiple categories)
B. Towing Assessment
C. Remediation Assessment
D. Disposal Assessment

This Request for Supply Arrangements (RFSA) is to establish supply arrangements for the delivery of the requirement detailed in the RFSA to the Identified Users across Canada, including geographic areas subject to Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements (CLCAs) and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA).

To meet the Government of Canada’s objectives of encouraging Indigenous socio-economic development through federally funded opportunities, Suppliers issued a supply arrangement as a result of this RFSA may be requested to complete an Indigenous Benefits Plan (IBP) with their bid. For additional information, refer to Annex H - Indigenous Benefits Plan (IBP).

Procurements will be set aside for qualified Aboriginal suppliers where practical and in accordance with the federal government’s Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB). For additional information, refer to Annex 9.4 of the Supply Manual.

The requirement and any resulting bid solicitation are subject to the provisions of the Trade Agreements. The Trade Agreements will be excluded for requirements where the vessel is located in the Nunavut Settlement Area or a Modern Treaty. If a set-aside or an exception is made use of or relied upon (e.g. any measure adopted or maintained with respect to Aboriginal Peoples, set-aside for minority businesses, etc.), some or all aspects of the procurement may not be subject to certain trade agreement obligations. 

1.2.6 The epost Connect service provided by Canada Post Corporation must be used by suppliers to transmit their arrangement. Suppliers must refer to Part 2 of the RFSA entitled Supplier Instructions and Part 3 of the RFSA entitled Arrangement Preparation Instructions for further information on using this method.
