allow all federal government departments, agencies and Crown
Corporations, who have outstanding debt, to collect the
outstanding amounts in order to meet the operational

across Canada.

Any resulting Standing Offer Agreements will be for a period of
three (3) years commencing upon Standing Offer Agreement award.

Canada may exercise an option to extend the term of the Standing
Offer Agreement by up to two (2) additional one (1) year
period(s) under the same conditions. The Contractor agrees that,
during the extended period of the Standing Offer Agreement, it
will be paid in accordance with the applicable provisions as set

Selection Methodology
To be declared responsive, an offer must: 
(a)	comply with all the requirements of the Request for Standing
(b)	meet all mandatory technical evaluation criteria; and 
(c)	obtain the required minimum numbers of points specified in
each of the point rated technical criterion.

Offers not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) will be declared
non-responsive. Neither the responsive offer that receives the
highest number of points nor the one that proposed the lowest
price will necessarily be accepted. The responsive offer with
the lowest evaluated price per point as calculated from a ratio
of the technical points scored to the price for each compliant
bid evaluated will be ranked first.  Of the highest ranked
responsive offers in ascending order up to 3 will be recommended
for issuance of a standing offer.

The lowest price per rated point will be determined as follows. 

Price per Rated Point = Total Cost (Excluding Option Periods) /
Total Points Achieved

In the event two or more responsive offers have the same lowest
evaluated price per point, these offers will be ranked in
descending order of the overall scores obtained for all the
point rated technical criteria; the responsive offer obtaining
the highest overall score being ranked the highest.

All enquiries must be submitted in writing to the Standing Offer
Authority no later than ten (10) calendar days before the
Request for Standing Offers (RFSO) closing date. Enquiries
received after that time may not be answered.
