Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) Project - Draft Invitation to Qualify

On January 7, 2019, Canada provided an update on the multi-phase procurement process for the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) Project. The update can be found at the following address: 


In line with that update, this notice provides the opportunity for interested suppliers to submit their written feedback on the draft Invitation to Qualify (ITQ) before Canada releases the final ITQ. 

This opportunity for written feedback to Canada is neither a call for tender nor a Request for Proposal (RFP) and is not to be considered in any way a commitment by Canada, nor as authority to potential respondents to undertake any work that could be charged to Canada. Participation in this opportunity for written feedback is not a condition or prerequisite for responding to any subsequent ITQ.

Canada continues to engage the same Fairness Monitor, Samson and Associates.

All enquiries and other communications related to this notice, including the feedback on the draft ITQ, are to be submitted in writing to the attention of the Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) Contracting Authority, using the Project's e-mail address below:


Interested suppliers are requested to provide their feedback as early as possible. Feedback received after the closing date and time may not be considered.

Delivery Date: Above-mentioned

The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
