Advance Contract Award Notification


Advance Contract Award Notification (ACAN)

An ACAN is a public notice indicating to the supplier community
that a department or agency intends to award a contract for
goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier,
thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in
bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no
supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the
requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date
stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed
with the award to the pre-identified supplier.

Definition of Requirements

The Department of National Defence (DND) has a requirement to
establish a Standing Offer for the purpose of procuring spare
parts for various Radar and Fire Control Systems deployed
onboard the Royal Canadian Navy Patrol Frigates (Halifax Class).
The Standing Offer will support the following systems:

- Sea Giraffe Family of Radars (SG-150, SG-180)

- CEROS Fire Control Directors (CEROS 200)

- 9LV Command and Fire Control System

The Standing Offer period will be three (3) years, and will
included the option to extend the Standing Offer for up to two
(2) additional one (1) year periods.

A standing offer (SO) is an offer from a supplier to Canada that
allows Canada to purchase goods and/or services, or a
combination of goods and services, as and when requested, during
a specific period of time, through the use of a call-up process
which incorporates the conditions and pricing of the standing
offer.

A standing offer itself is not a contract. A separate contract
is formed each time a call-up for the provision of goods and/or
services is made against a standing offer. When a call-up is
made, it constitutes an unconditional acceptance by Canada of
the supplier's offer for the provision, to the extent specified,
of the goods and/or services described in the standing offer.

Criteria for assessment of the Statement of Capabilities
(Minimum Essential Requirements)

Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of a statement
of capabilities that they can supply Spare Parts under a
Standing Offer agreement for the above mentioned radar systems.

systems need to be added or removed from the list.
