Next Generation Digital Learning Experience Solution

Fenwick, Wesley
Telephone No. - (613) 720-7743

0X001-190594/B hereby replaces 0X001-190594/A due to a technical issue.

The Canada School of Public Service ("the School") is seeking a Next Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE), hereafter referred to as "the Solution," to succeed its current Learning Management System. The Solution is expected to enable the School to deliver on its mandate, to carry out core business operations related to the design and delivery of learning products, and to provide public servants with interactive and open online learning resources, videos, in-person and virtual courses, seminars and events, accessible anytime and from anywhere. The primary users of the Solution will include over 260,000 public service employees across Canada and Worldwide.

The School is seeking a Solution delivered via the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, hosted as a Protected B, Medium Integrity, Medium Availability (PBMM) cloud-based solution.  The required Solution may be comprised of any combination of commercial-off-the-shelf ("COTS") software or Pre-Existing software; the resulting configuration of such software would allow operation of the Solution at all times in accordance with the Statement of Work in the bid solicitation. The Contractor will configure the Solution such that it:

1. Includes hosting services that meet Government of Canada data residency requirements;
2. Meets Government of Canada security requirements and industry best practices;
3. Includes secure maintenance and technical support;
4. Includes training and other professional services as and when requested; 
5. Includes regularly updated solution-based training materials and documentation, including all requisite software licenses and warranties; and
6. The Government of Canada will retain ownership of all data in the Solution including business data, monitoring data, and metadata.
c) The proposed bid solicitation may result in the award of up to 3 Contracts to successful Bidders to each develop a Capability and Usability Assessment (CUA) Prototype Solution in accordance with Phase 1 of the Statement of Work in the bid solicitation, and at Canada’s sole discretion, exercise the options on one contract to deliver the production ready Solution in accordance with Phase 2 of the Statement of Work in the RFP. The resulting Contracts will include 9 irrevocable options allowing Canada to extend the term of the resulting Contract by one year each.  
d) While Canada intends to issue a Contract or Contract(s) of a specific duration, Canada reserves the right to continue to Contract for and leverage this Solution for as long as it makes business sense for Canada to do so.  Canada also expects that this type of Solution will evolve with time and technology, including incorporation of functionality or technology that isn’t currently part of the requirement.  Canada reserves the right to consider these evolutionary functionality or technology to be part of the ongoing scope of the work being done under the resulting Contract, subject to Canada’s internal approval processes.
e) The proposed bid solicitation and the resulting Contract(s) will follow an agile procurement approach in order to encourage more effective collaboration with vendors. Being agile means approaching projects with short phases at a fast pace, while assessing and addressing challenges along the way. 
f) Canada reserves the right to, at a subsequent date and at its sole discretion, identify the solution either as a multi-departmental solution, or designate the solution as a Government of Canada Enterprise-wide standard if and when determined by the GC-Enterprise Architecture Review Board (GCEARB). 
g) The anticipated multi-phase agile procurement process will be conducted as per the following phases:

1. RFP 2. Evaluate proposals to determine top-ranked Bidder(s) 3. Up to 3 top ranked Bidders may be awarded Contracts to develop a Prototype Solution for  Capability and Usability Assessment (CUA) 4. CUA conducted 
5. Exercise option to implement full Solution
Delivery Date: Above-mentioned
