Letter of Interest (LOI): Project TCE Plume Management (West) – Valcartier (TCEVC-PMW), Department of National Defence 

Project cancelled until further notice.

This updated Letter of Interest (LOI) is released by the Government of Canada to indicate the ongoing intention to initiate a procurement process that will result in a contract for the design, construction, operation and maintenance (DBOM) of a pumping and treatment (P&T) system for the Department of National Defence (DND), located in Valcartier, Quebec, as originally communicated in the LOI dated July 20, 2016. 

As of date of publication of the LOI, the project requirement’s design and construction specifications are under development. No solicitation date has been identified. This is not a bid solicitation. This LOI will not result in the award of any contract, nor result in the creation of any source list; therefore, no responses are being solicited from interested suppliers at this time.

Practices related to the use of Trichloroethylene (TCE) by the federal government and private sector organizations between 1940 and 1990 in the Valcartier area resulted in the presence of this substance in the groundwater. The TCE present in the groundwater around Valcartier encompasses a large area of land belonging to federal, provincial, municipal and private owners. 

The objective of the project is to develop and implement an approach for managing the alleged discharges of TCE to the Jacques-Cartier River. The project proposes the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of a P&T system over an approximate 15-year period. 

-Inform the industry of the ongoing intention to initiate a procurement process for the DBOM of a P&T System in Valcartier, Quebec
-Inform the industry and industry associations of potential upcoming contracting opportunities

This LOI may be augmented with additional phases, and may include a call for input from industry. A response is not being solicited at this time. The LOI closing date published herein is therefore not the final deadline for comments or input. The LOI closing date may be extended if and when subsequent phases are initiated.

The procurement model under consideration, a design, build, operation and maintenance, is expected to be procured through a Public-Private Partnership (P3) procurement process.

Additional contracts may be awarded or were awarded for the following requirements in association with the TCEVC-PMW Project. Suppliers should be aware that being awarded any of the following contracts would preclude their participation as a member of the prospective consortium of the TCEVC-PMW Project P3 Procurement Process. The objectives of the procurements listed are for reference only and may vary from the solicitations published. Other contracts that are not listed below may be awarded, as required.
