Nature of Requirements: 

This Letter of Interest is to invite suppliers to submit a response to the Suppliers List Invitation (SLI) for the Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP). 

Canadas project for the replacement of the aging fighter fleet is called the Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP). Canadas current intention for the FFCP is to procure a solution that may include 88 advanced fighter aircraft and associated equipment, training, maintenance and engineering, materiel support, initial weapons, expendables, ammunition, required infrastructure changes, sustainment set-up to enable achievement of full operational capability of the new fleet, and a potential period of sustainment for the new fleet.

Canadas Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy, including the Value Proposition and the requirement for suppliers to place investment in Canada equal to the value of the contract(s), will apply to the FFCP.
This procurement is subject to national security exception and is, therefore, excluded from all of the obligations of the trade agreements.

The Suppliers List Invitation (SLI) is a process for the creation of a Suppliers List. This SLI is not an invitation to submit proposals for the FFCP procurement process. No contract or bilateral/ multilateral government agreement for the provision of advanced aircraft and associated elements will be awarded as a result of the activities under the SLI phase.

This SLI has no defined closing date and will remain open until such time as Canada no longer considers it to be required. At that time, Canada will amend the letter of interest to reflect the actual SLI closing date.

The FFCP competitive procurement process will require Government or a Defence Organisation (as applicable), and fighter aircraft Manufacturer involvement. As such, each Supplier on the Suppliers List will be composed of several entities, at a minimum a Government or a Defence Organisation (as applicable), and a fighter aircraft Manufacturer. The terms "Supplier", "Government", "Defence Organisation" and "Manufacturer" are defined terms for the purposes of the SLI (see article 2.1 of the SLI). 

A complete response to the SLI consists of:
a) Completed Annex A1 to the SLI-Government/Defence Organisation Response Form;
b) Completed Annex A2 to the SLI-Manufacturer Response Form; and
c) Responses to the Suppliers List Criteria, Annex B to the SLI 
Responses to the SLI may be submitted in either official language of Canada.

Only Suppliers on the Suppliers List at the time of notification of solicitation will be invited to participate in subsequent formal supplier engagement and to submit proposals for the FFCP. That notification could be issued as early as 12 February 2018. Canada will publish a notice on Buyandsell.gc.ca advising that the notification has been issued.

- Requested response submission date: No later than 9 February 2018
- Notification of solicitation: To be indicated by Canada at a later time in accordance with Article 1.4 of the SLI (as early as 12 February 2018)
