ProServices 2013 

The purpose of this notice is to advise suppliers that the
ProServices Request for Supply Arrangement closing date has been
extended to 15 July 2013 to provide additional time to respond
to Suppliers' concerns raised at the May 30th Bidders'

We are revising the Request for Supply Arrangement - under Part
3 Arrangement Preparation Instructions, under Section 1:
Technical Arrangements, in end of paragraph "For existing TSPS
and TSBIPS Suppliers (i.e. grandfathering), insert after the
last sentence the following changes:

A.	A proposal submitted for the recent Task Based Informatics
Professional Services (TBIPS) and/or Task and Solutions
Professional Services - task based only (TSPS) re-competitions
[aka refresh], may include additional categories that are not
yet in the Centralized Professional Services System (CPSS). 
Bidders responding to ProServices are to reflect this
information in ProServices under "Grandfathered", .  As part of the evaluations for ProServices,
verification of all information (certification and categories)
for "grandfathering" will be carried out based on the ongoing
review of information in CPSS.

B.	A "Grandfathered" Bidder for ProServices, is a Bidder who has
completed the "Grandfather" certification and identified the
categories to be grandfathered and submitted the required
documentation to the Bid Receiving Unit by the closing
date/time.  The categories reflected by a "Grandfathered" Bidder
for ProServices are the categories which are contained in the
Bidder's response (through the Data Collection Component [DCC])
to TBIPS and/or TSPS.  A "Grandfathered" Bidder for ProServices
can also identify a new category or new categories; to do so,
the "Grandfathered" Bidder must select the necessary
certifications in the DCC and provide the category
substantiation for each new category.  The "Grandfathered"
Bidder is not required to re-submit certifications previously
provided to the recent TBIPS and/or TSPS re-competition, as this
information will be part of the verification of all information
(certification and categories) for "grandfathering" carried out
for ProServices.

C.	In addition to completing the required information in the DCC
under Category Substantiation, a reference letter can be
submitted, and indicated in the Cross Reference Field that it is
being submitted by hard copy. Suppliers still need to complete
the "Category References" section.  It is noted this alters the
instructions under Categories Summaries, item 1.

Instructions for the use of the DCC are available on the CPSS
web site at: . 

Security Requirement
There is a security requirement associated with the requirements
of the Supply Arrangement.
The Supplier must hold, at minimum, a valid Designated
Organization Screening (DOS) issued by the Canadian Industrial
Security Directorate (CISD), by issuance of the Supply
Arrangement.  The Supply Arrangement Authority may verify the
Supplier's security clearance with the CISD of PWGSC at any time
during the period of the Supply Arrangement.

Delivery Date: Above-mentioned

The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
