Notice of Proposed Procurement

The Real Property Branch (RPB) of Public Works and Government
Services Canada (PWGSC) requires the services of a contractor to
provide real estate leasing services in the National Capital
Area (NCA). Services will be related to:
office space for occupancy by federal government departments and
retail and office space for third-party occupancies in
Federally-owned buildings managed directly by PWGSC; this is
referred to as Commercial Letting Services in this Statement of
Work (SOW) ; and
lease advisory/consultancy services in support of
leasing/commercial letting 

RPB expects that the majority of leasing services required will
entail negotiations with Lessors with respect to office space

RPB/PWGSC is the Government of Canada's real property service
delivery manager and strategic advisor. RPB provides
accommodation for approximately 241,000 federal employees in
over 100 departments and agencies in locations across Canada.
PWGSC's real estate inventory is one of the largest and most
diverse portfolios in Canada, comprising 374 owned buildings
(3.2 million square metres); 1,022 leased buildings (3.4 million
square metres); and 21 lease-purchase buildings (500,000 square
metres). PWGSC's lease inventory in the NCA represents
approximately 407 leases and 1.5 million square metres.

There is an increasing need and expectation on the part of
government to be more efficient in its operations and more
responsive to changing needs and opportunities. This translates
into a need for PWGSC to maximize its flexibility and
responsiveness through:
–	Rigorous space and fit-up standards; 
–	A new national project management system; 
–	Long-term accommodation strategies; 
–	Supplementing our service-delivery capacity; 
–	Adopting a corporate real estate model. 

One initiative includes adopting a more aggressive leasing
strategy to secure competitive rates and improving long-term
strategic program planning. PWGSC's real estate approach is
still evolving towards a corporate real estate function for the
Government of Canada. The department's objective is to support
government operations in terms of office accommodation needs for
all federal departments and agencies while ensuring the best
value for the Canadian taxpayer.

The challenge is continuing to find appropriate supply solutions
to meet government program accommodation demand, changing
Canadian demographics, as well as the impacts of technology
advancements in the delivery of government programs and in the
way Canadians expect to interact with government, will influence
the composition and distribution of PWGSC's portfolio. As a
result, in order to properly fulfill its mandate, the RPB/PWGSC
foresees a need to enhance its service management organization
to appropriately supplement its service delivery capacity.

PWGSC requires a contractor to provide, on an "as and when
requested" basis, a Transaction Management Team of real estate
professionals, comprised of a Senior Transaction Manager
(Contract lead), Transaction Manager(s) (Office and Retail
Broker), Lease Administrator and available Market
Researchers/Strategic Market Planners/Analysts (Support) to
provide real estate leasing services in the National Capital
Area to supplement PWGSC in-house real estate leasing services
resources and to address the significant increase in workload
over the next five years. The requirement to provide services in
both Provinces will require both an Affiliate Broker and Retail
Affiliate Broker to be part of the Transaction Management Team.

The contract period will be from the date of the contract to
March 31, 2019, however, the work will only commence on April 1,
