This requirement is not subject to the international trade
agreements and falls within the framework of the Defence
Procurement Strategy announced on February 5, 2014, therefore,
the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) with Value
Proposition (VP) will be applied. ITBs obligations will be
equivalent to 100% of the eligible contract value, for both the
Acquisition and Repair & Overhaul (R&O) Contracts, whereas VP
requirements may be based upon, in part, Industry responses

On September 27, 2011, Canada released a Letter of Interest for
the NRWS system requirement in conjunction with an invitation to
a non-mandatory Industry Day. The objectives of that process was
to advise industry of the anticipated forthcoming requirement,
receive information regarding existing NRWS technology, provide
industry with a preliminary set of draft high level
specifications for review and comment, and to receive detailed,
indicative, non-binding cost information for project planning

The project has evolved to a point where prior to releasing a
Request for Proposal (RFP) under a formal solicitation process,
a draft RFP package is being presented to Industry. This Request
for Information (RFI) process will allow suppliers to submit
comments and feedback to help Canada formalize the NRWS
specifications, Industrial and Technological Benefits with Value
Proposition approach, and the RFP Terms and Conditions and
resulting contract clauses.

The Draft RFP package will be released over several subsequent
RFI amendments and suppliers are requested to review each
release and submit their comments and feedback to Canada by the
requested due dates. 

A complete list of Draft RFP documents can be found in RFI
Section 15.
