One-on-one Meetings

The intent of these one-on-one sessions is to provide industry the opportunity to seek clarification and provide feedback to the Government of Canada on OCFC2. Canada will not entertain any sales related or marketing discussions or presentations of a company’s products or services during one-on-one sessions.

Industry Days

1.Purpose. The Department of National Defence intends to implement a managed clothing solution through a third party provider for military operational clothing and footwear. The initiative is known as the Operational Clothing and Footwear Consolidated Contract (OCFC2). The goal of Industry Days is to provide an overview of the current status, plan, and schedule for the initiative to interested vendors. It will also provide the opportunity for industry to seek clarification and provide feedback to the Government of Canada.

2.Format and Schedule. Industry Days will take place in Gatineau commencing at 9:30 on 27 May 2019 and ending at 16:00 on May 28, 2019. The format will include a plenary session followed by a display of the clothing and other items that are proposed to be included under the initiative, as well as, a series of optional one-on-one meetings between Government and Industry representatives. 

The draft schedule is as follows:

A. 27 May
09:30 to 10:00 – Arrival and Registration
10:00 to 12:00 – Plenary session: Presentations from DND, ISED and PSPC, followed by a question period;
