Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: Generally only one firm has been invited to bid Attachment: None Non-Competitive Procurement Strategy: Exclusive Rights Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Vendor Name and Address: New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research Ltd Private Bag 4704 New Zealand 8020 Nature of Requirements: Winter Nursery: Canterbury Plains and Manawatu Plains, New Zealand 01581-130095/A Mack, Wayne Telephone No. - (306) 975-4004 ( ) Fax No. - (306) 975-5397 Requirement Regional Individual Standing Offer for plant breeding winter nursery services in New Zealand on an "as and when requested" basis by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) various locations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The services required are to plant, manage, and harvest cereal lines for individual AAFC plant breeding programs and to plant, manage, harvest and condition pure-seed, bulk planted pedigreed increase plots of cereal lines or varieties to the equivalent of Canadian Breeder Seed Standards. The services include arranging physpanotary inspection / certification and other documentation for all seed shipped to Canada and delivery of the packaged seed to a commercial shipping agent at the Christchurch airport. This is an on going plant breeding research program in New Zealand. The soil and climatic conditions (October to March) are similar to summer growing conditions in Canada. For example: the latitude permits the expression of genetic day-length sensitivity. The earliness of the growing season permits early maturation of the crop in time for early return shipment to Canada. Natural levels of disease infection permit selection for genetic resistance to several diseases of economic importance in Canada. THE STANDING OFFER WILL BE FOR A TWO YEAR PERIOD FROM 15 AUGUST 2012 TO 14 AUGUST 2014. If the Standing Offer is authorized for use beyond the initial period, the Offeror offers to extend its offer for an additional one year period, from 15 August 2014 to 14 August 2015 under the same conditions and at the rates or prices specified in the Standing Offer, or at the rates or prices calculated in accordance with the formula specified in the Standing Offer. Sole Source Justification: There are no other companies in New Zealand that are capable of performing the magnitude of the work required. This is a specialized nursery and AAFC requires the expertise that this company has to grow the unique experimental genetic materials and ensuring their integrity. This requirement gives AAFC a second generation in the same year and speeds up the breeding of AAFC's crops. Total estimated Cost: $400,000.00 New Zealand Dollars per year. GCR Exemption: d) only one supplier (person or firm) is capable of performing the contract.
