Request for Information (RFI) - Fraser River Landslide at Big Bar

Public Services and Procurement Canada, on behalf of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (Canada) is requesting information from interested parties for construction and environmental remediation services necessary to re-establish fish passage in the Fraser River in response to the Big Bar Landslide. This RFI is intended to gather information that could assist Canada in the development of a future procurement process. In the event that sufficient information is received, Canada may, but is not obligated to, initiate a competitive, limited or directed contracting process.  

Given the urgency of this requirement, the RFI will close Friday, 06 December, 2019 and no extensions will be granted. Feedback received after this date may not be considered. In the interest of time and in order to facilitate a real-time exchange of information, a WebEx meeting
was organized for Monday, 02 December, 2019 at 10 am. 

During the Fraser River Big Bar Landslide RFI Webex dated 02 December, 2019 a question was asked regarding the procurement strategy. At that time it was indicated that all available options were being considered and responses to the RFI were not mandatory. Further to that response, the prospective bidding community is informed that only those that respond to this RFI to indicate interest may be invited to submit a bid in response to a limited competitive tender for this work.

The purpose of issuing this RFI is to:
- Obtain information on constructability and potential new technologies or approaches;
- Obtain recommendations that would enhance the success of proposed fish passage remediation activities;
- Identify potential contractors who possess specialized equipment and construction expertise and experience in fish passage remediation, in-stream work and working in remote and challenging environmental conditions;
- Identify local Indigenous business with the capacity to conduct operations and have an interest in participating in an economic benefits program; and
- Provide awareness of the planned projects to industry. 

Interested parties are invited to respond to this RFI by submitting a response to Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC). Responses should include ideas, information and recommendations, potential cost-saving opportunities, and the identification of potential risks associated with this work.

All responses will be treated as confidential, subject to the provisions of the Access to Information Act (R.S. 1985, c. A-1) and the Privacy Act (R.S., 1985, c. P-21). 

You are asked to submit your responses electronically. If you encounter technical difficulties with the electronic questionnaire, please contact Donna Fung by email at Donna.Fung@pwgsc-tpsgc.gc.ca.
