The HQSS project emphasizes the need for a modular, spacious and environmentally protective shelter from which unit and brigade headquarters can command. The project will provide a new system of tactical soft-walled shelters and ancillary equipment to support the functions of digitized headquarters command posts, accommodations and field hospitals. Upon completion, the project will provide a common, CF-wide capability of a scalable, tactically mobile, shelter system providing full environmental protection and control in a wide range of climatic conditions. The purpose of this Letter of Interest (LOI) is: - to enable Canada to engage industry and obtain information regarding value proposition potential for the HQSS; and - to seek feedback from Industry regarding potential equipment configuration to be utilized for assessment during setup and for testing; - to seek feedback from Industry regarding the draft Request for Proposal (to be released in the near future through an amendment to this LOI); - to seek feedback from Industry regarding potential in-service support element of the acquisition; and - to seek feedback from Industry regarding any other information that may be useful. This is neither a call for tender nor a Request for Proposal (RFP), and no agreement or contract for the procurement of the equipment stated above will be entered into solely as a result of this LOI. This announcement does not constitute a commitment by Canada. Canada does not intend to award a contract on the basis of the notice or otherwise pay for the information solicited. Any and all expenses incurred by industry in pursing this opportunity, including the provision of information and potential visits, are at industry's sole risk and expense. Any discussions on this subject with project staff representing DND or PWGSC, or any other Government of Canada representative, or other personnel involved in project activities, shall not be construed as an offer to purchase or as commitment by DND, PWGSC or Government of Canada as a whole. Although the documents / information / data collected may be provided as commercial-in-confidence and will not be provided to a third party outside of Canada, Canada reserves the right to use the information to assist them in drafting performance specifications and for budgetary purposes. Requirements are subject to change, which may be as a result of information provided in response to this LOI. Suppliers are advised that any information submitted to Canada in response to this LOI may, or may not, be used by Canada in the development of the potential subsequent RFP. The issuance of this LOI does not create an obligation for Canada to issue a subsequent RFP, and does not bind Canada legally or otherwise, to enter into any agreement or to accept or reject any suggestions.
