Nature of Requirements: 

Request for Proposal  Collection Services for Outstanding
Federal Fines

Prior to September 1996, provincial authorities generally
handled the collection of federal fines and the provincial
courts across Canada would simply issue a warrant of committal
in cases where a federal fine remained unpaid after it became
due. No further collection action would be taken, and
incarceration for unpaid fines was the most frequent consequence
for default of payment.
The National Fine Recovery Program (NFRP) was nationally
implemented in 2002 by the former Federal Prosecution Service,
within the federal Department of Justice. Its mandate was to
enforce sentences by recovering outstanding federal fines
ordered against individuals and companies convicted under
federal statutes. Federal fines refer to fines levied against
individuals and companies after a conviction in a court of law
for an offence prosecuted by the Public Prosecution Service of
Canada (PPSC).
The PPSC, which was created by Act of Parliament in 2006, was
issued an assignment by the Attorney General of Canada in
September 2007 to administer the NFRP.
The NFRP employed small recovery units located in eight regional
PPSC offices (Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto,
Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax), covering ten provincial
jurisdictions. The PPSC decided to outsource the majority of the
collection work handled by the NFRP to private collection

The Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) has a
requirement for Debt Collection Services as part of the National
Fine Recovery Program (NFRP), as defined in Annex A, Statement
of Work. PPSC requires the services from the date of contract
for a period of two (2) years, with the option to extend for one
(1) additional one (1) year period.

Security Requirement: 
There are security requirements associated with this
requirement. For additional information, consult Part 6 -

Resulting Contract Clauses. For more information on personnel
and organization security screening or security clauses, bidders
