Amendment No. 6 updates the food quality specification and extends the closing date. 

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) is publishing the Food Quality Specifications for Fresh Fruit. 

PSPC or any department may reference the attached document in solicitations when it is determined by the client/user federal department that the requirement should include the attached specification. 

The specification has been written by DND based on their operational needs, however, this specification may also be used by other federal departments. 

This is not a bid solicitation. This notice will not result in the awarding of any contract/Standing Offer/Supply Arrangement, nor will it result in the creation of any source list. As well, the fact of not responding to this Letter of Interest will not preclude a supplier to participate in the subsequent procurement process.

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.
