Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has a requirement to establish Regional Individual Standing Offers (RISOs) for a range of Environmental Services for federally owned properties in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, as per the attached Required Services (Statement of Work).   

These Environmental Services may include phased environmental site assessments, site remediation, risk assessments, compliance related work, sustainability services and environmental management systems support and environmental impact assessments, related permitting and scientific studies (e.g. biology, oceanography, archeology).  

PWGSC is intending to issue Four (4) RISOs in response to this Request for Standing Offer (RFSO). This requirement will be evaluated in accordance with pre-set mandatory, technical and price criteria. Offers will be rated with regard to the: Proposed Team Approach and Management of Services, Past Experience of the Offeror, Senior Technical Specialist Expertise and Experience, Project Personnel Expertise and experience, as well as the proposed price of services.

The four (4) highest ranked offers will be recommended for issuance of a RISO based on ideal business distribution percentages, which have been pre-established as follows: 30% of business volume to the top ranked consultant, 27% to the second, 24% to the third and 19% to the fourth. Should we receive less than four (4) responsive offers, the values of the business distributed will be adjusted accordingly.

The period for placing call-ups and rendering services against these RISOs will be two (2) years from the date of issuance, on  an ``as and when requested basis. The total estimated value is estimated to be $6,900,000.00 (HSTI).  Individual call-up amounts will vary, up to a maximum of $400,000.00 (HSTI).

A standing offer is an agreement and not a contract.  Canada does not guarantee that the full amount, or that any amount, will be called-up on any resultant standing offer.  


With the introduction of the new Government of Canada Web Site, Buyandsell.gc.ca/tenders, there are significant changes to Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) solicitations.

Buyandsell.gc.ca/tenders is the official and first site suppliers should rely on to find Government of Canada tenders to ensure that they always get the most up-to-date and accurate information about new tender notices or amendments. Buyandsell.gc.ca cannot confirm or endorse the completeness of information that suppliers might find on third-party web sites or received through a notification service. Firms that elect to base their bids on solicitation documents obtained from other sources do so at their own risk and will be solely responsible to inform the contracting authority of their intention to bid.

In keeping with Canadas commitment to green procurement, only electronic distribution of tenders and associated documents and/or construction drawings is available. Bidders can download and print the documents or bring them or send them by email to a print shop or other professional printing services for printing.

Addenda, when issued, will be available on the web site Buyandsell.gc.ca/tenders.  It is the responsibility of the Bidder to ensure that all addenda issued prior to solicitation closing have been obtained and addressed in the submitted offer.

Sealed offers will be received in English, or French at:  Public Works and Government Services Canada, Bid Receiving Unit, 10 Barter's Hill, P.O. Box 4600, St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador
