Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Attachment: None Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: File: H4133-12931/A Title: Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CSTADS) Description: Health Canada has a requirement to carry out the 2014-2015 Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey (CSTADS) following the existing methodology for the Youth Smoking Survey (YSS) as closely as possible. Data collection will be done by means of a school-based survey. This is a study to help understand Canadian trends in tobacco, alcohol and drug use vital to the effective development, implementation and evaluation of strategies, policies and programs aimed at addressing substance use and abuse. Effective development and monitoring of programs aimed at reducing substance use, and the regulation of tobacco products and illicit drugs requires a regular measurement of progress. The Youth Smoking Survey (YSS) has become a very important surveillance tool for Health Canada and its partners in this regard. The target population for the CSTADS is all school children attending grades 6 to 12 in Canada, excluding residents of the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and residents living on First Nation Reserves. Students who are attending special schools (e.g., schools for visually-impaired and hearing-impaired) or who are attending schools located on military bases will also be excluded from the population. The Contractor must try to obtain the participation of all 10 provinces. Data for a minimum of 42,000 youth in grades 6 through 12, on tobacco use, associated knowledge attitudes and beliefs, and demographic information must be obtained. Additional data on drug and alcohol use must be obtained from youth in grades 7 to 12 only. School-aged youth is generally recognized as the population most at risk for experimenting with tobacco products, alcohol and drugs. With a consistent measure of student substance use it is possible to examine the factors that influence youth behaviour with respect to smoking and alcohol and drug use. Final data sets with all supporting documentation (User Guide, Codebook, and Frequency Tables) for the 2014-15 CSTADS in English and French must be delivered to the Technical Authority upon completion of the Contract. The 2014-15 survey must be conducted in a manner that will provide seamless continuity with previously collected YSS data. The sampling and survey methodology used in data collection for the 2010-11 YSS is described in the 2010-11 User Guide attached as Appendix 1 to Annex "A" to the Request for Proposal. The Contractor's sampling and survey methodology for conducting this 2014-15 survey must produce results that are consistent and comparable to the results that would be produced by the methods described in the 2010-11 sample The work will commence January 01, 2014 to December 31, 2015 inclusive, with two (2) two year option periods.
