Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: Attachment: None Non-Competitive Procurement Strategy: Interchangeable Parts Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Vendor Name and Address: Life Prediction Technologies Inc. 23-1010 Polytek Street, Ottawa Ontario Canada K1J9J1 Nature of Requirements: ENGINE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY PROGRAM (ESIP) W8485-12ESIP/A Davidson(sv), Linda Telephone No.: (819) 956-1367 / (819) 939-5289 Fax No.: (819) 997-2229 1. Advance Contract Award Notice (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. 2. Definition of requirement The Department of National Defence (DND) has a requirement for a range of technical and engineering support for power plant/propulsion systems analysis capabilities including: Critical reviews of Prognosis and Health Management (PHM) systems; Assessments of recommended life cycle management practices; Reviews of engine designs and potential engine usage patterns; Gas turbine hot section component reviews; Prognosis based predictions on critical parts, and; Failure modes and parts criticality assessments. 3. Criteria for assessment of the Statement of Capabilities Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of a statement of capabilities that its product/equipment/system (as appropriate) meets the following requirements: (Summarize the essential functional characteristics or, if necessary to properly define the goods, the physical or design characteristics, and describe any requirements for interchangeability with existing systems or equipment. Also include to the extent possible performance or output criteria. If applicable, refer to recognized Canadian or international standards, specifications, and/or regulations). Experience, (e.g. x years experience in the past x years conducting y; x number of projects similar in size, scope and complexity); Knowledge and understanding of (e.g. x equipment; x economic model; x software);- Academic qualifications, (e.g. must possess an undergraduate degree from a recognized university in the field of [e.g. business, political science]); Professional designation, accreditation, and/or certification (e.g. professional engineer, Certified General Accountant). 3.1 Minimum Essential Requirements: The basic capability requirement includes the following: 3.1.1 The determination of the structural condition of critical engine components, as assessed from data sources available for Canadian Forces (CF) aircraft (available sensor data and maintenance records); 3.1.2 Analysis of the degradation patterns and factors affecting structural degradation (mission profile, environmental etc); and 3.1.3 Assessment of the remaining useful life of critical components (prognostic analysis). To be effectively applied to ensure engine structural integrity within the requirements of airworthiness, these capabilities must be validated and verified with respect to the parts, engines and operating profiles/conditions that are specific to the CF aircraft fleet. The only software that has been validated and verified for such computations using data from CF platforms is XactLIFE, developed by LPTi. The specified capability encompasses the following tasks: 3.1.4 Review of various CF engine designs & respective Prognostics and Health Monitoring capabilities; 3.1.5 Analysis/modelling of mission profiles and engine usage patterns; 3.1.6 Assessment of Original Equipment Manufacturer recommended life cycle management; 3.1.7 Engineering Review and Analysis of critical components and hot section components; 3.1.8 Calculate prognosis (remaining useful life) of critical components/hot section components; and 3.1.9 Carry out Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) for compressor, combustor and turbine components. 4. Applicability of the trade agreement(s) to the procurement This procurement is subject to the following trade agreement(s): Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) 5. Justification for the Pre-Identified Supplier Life Prediction Technologies Inc. (LPTI) has exclusive Intellectual Property (IP) rights to the only validated and verified physics-based product available to conduct gas turbine prognostics and component lifing analyses compatible with DND equipment. The patented XactLIFE prognostic system has been developed and proven under previous DND contracts. DND provided funding to partially support the development of this uniquea engineering analysis tool. 6. Government Contracts Regulations Exception(s) The following exception to the Government Contracts Regulations is invoked for this procurement under subsection 6.d, only one person is capable of performing the work. 7. Exclusions and/or Limited Tendering Reasons The following exclusion(s) and/or limited tendering reasons are invoked under the section of the trade agreement(s) specified: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) - Article(s) 12.a 8. Ownership of Intellectual Property Ownership of any Foreground Intellectual Property arising out of the proposed contract will vest in the Contractor. 9. The period of the proposed contract or the delivery date(s) The proposed contract is for a period of three (3) years and includes five (5) one (1) year option periods. 10. Name and address of the pre-identified supplier Life Prediction Technologies Inc. (LPTI) 23-1010 Polytek Street Ottawa, Ontario K1J 9J1 11.
