Proponents are asked to submit a single proposal in response to the RFSO.  Proposals must indicate the proponents interest in one, several or all regions.  Each resultant Standing Offer will be for a period of three (3) years.  Canada anticipates the total value of these standing offers to be approximately $3,000,000.00.
