Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: Generally only one firm has been invited to bid Non-Competitive Procurement Strategy: Exclusive Rights Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Vendor Name and Address:  Southern Seed Technology Limited Southern Seed Technolgy Ltd P O Box 42 New Zealand 8151 Nature of Requirements:   Winter Nursery Services - Canterbury Plains, New Zealand  01R11-16S002/A Mack, Wayne Telephone No. - (306) 241-6435 (    ) Fax No. - (306) 975-5397 (    )  Requirement:  To provide plant breeding winter nursery services in Canterbury Plains, NewZealand on an as required basis for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) various locations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, during the period of the Regional Individual Standing Offer from 01 August 2016 to 31 July 2019. Current users of the winter nursery service include AAFC plant breeders of flax, barley, peas, wheat and oats.  Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Research Stations located at Lacombe and Lethbridge in Alberta, Indian Head, Saskatoon and Swift Current in Saskatchewan;Brandon, Morden and Winnipeg in Manitoba and Ottawa, Ontario co-ordinate winter nursery services for AAFC plant breeders.  Current users of the winter nursery service include AAFC plant breeders of flax, barley, peas, wheat and oats.  Background:  This winter nursery is an ongoing plant breeding research program in New Zealand.  The soil and climatic conditions (October to March) are similar to summer growing conditions in Canada.  The timing of harvest in New Zealand permits early seed shipment to Canada, a critical concern to the nursery users, as it permits preparation of experiments for spring planting within a very narrow time frame . Plant breeding winter nurseries are used by AAFC plant breeders to gain an extra generation of seed production and selection each year.  This significantly reduces the time from the initial cross between parent lines to the production of a finished crop variety by up to four years.  The use of field planted winter nurseries in areas of the southern hemisphere provides a substantial cost benefit to users in comparison to the operation of greenhouses and plant growth chambers. The winter increase facilities are used by AAFC plant breeding programs to hasten the commercialization of new crop varieties or to recover from crop failures experienced during the preceding growing season.  The use of winter nurseries also affects commercial pedigreed seed production by facilitating the introduction of improved varieties in a timely manner, an important considerationin today's competitive market  Sole Source Justification:  This winter nursery is an on-going plant breeding research program in New Zealand.  Between October and March, soil and climatic conditions in New Zealand are similar to summer growing conditionsin Canada.  The timing of harvest in New Zealand permits early return shipment to Canada, a critical concern to the nursery users.  Southern Seed Technology Limited (SST) is the only winter nursery in New Zealand that specializes in pure seed production.  This is of value to AAFC Plant Breeders as new pure breeding lines produced by doubled haploid technology and higher generation experimental materials (ie. significant investment in time and dollars) require seed increase with assured purity. SST is certified by the New Zealand government to import, store, treat and plant seed under quarantine and produce pedigreed seed following Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF) standards.  The ability of SST to follow MAF biosecurity standards providesassurance that the timing of harvest permits early seed shipment back to Canada.  This is critical to nursery users as it facilitates the preparation of experiments for spring planting which needs tooccur in a very narrow time frame. Plants breedersare continually searching for other nursery providers in the southern hemisphere.   To date no other nursery providers have been identified for seed increase at level of assured quality that is required.  Total estimated Cost: $1,200,000.00 CAD   GCR Exemption: d) only one supplier (person or firm) is capable of performing the contract.

The environmentat this site is optimal for the selection of genetic resistance to leaf and stem rust of wheat and crown rust of oats.  These diseases are of major economic importance to cereal production on the eastern Canadian prairies. The incorporation of improved genetic resistance to cereal rusts is a key goal of AAFC breeders so the use of winter nurseries at this site is critical to their success.  The Arable Nursery program of Crop Seed fulfills a national mandate in New Zealand similar to that of AAFCs SeedIncrease Unit in that this team is responsible for the development of crops with genetic resistance to diseases, production and distribution of Breeder pedigreed seed of crop varieties developed by their institutions plant breeders. There is no other company in New Zealand that is capable of performing the magnitude of genetic enhancement research that the work requires. This is a specialized nursery and AAFC requires the expertise this company has to grow the unique experimental genetic materials andensuring their integrity.  Total estimated Cost: $1,200,000.00 CAD  GCR Exemption: d) only one supplier (person or firm) is capable of performing the contract.

Trade Agreement: WTO-AGP/NAFTA/AIT/Canada FTAs with Peru/Colombia/Panama Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Competitive Procurement Strategy: Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: CapIllary Electophoresis - Swift Current, SK 01581-160882/A Mack, Wayne Telephone No. - (306) 241-6435 ( ) Fax No. - (306) 975-5397 ( ) To supply one (1) REFURBISHED Applied Biosystems Inc 3730XL Capillary Electrophoresis system in accordance with the Specifications detailed herein, for Agriculture Canada, Swift Current Research and Development Centre (SCRDC), Swift Current, SK. Delivery is desirable by March 31, 2016. Background: In 2003, a sole source procurement of an ABI-3100 Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) Genetic Analyzer needed for DNA fragment analysis in the Marker Assisted Screening (MAS) program at the Swift Current Research and Development Centre (SCRDC) was completed (later upgraded to the ABI-3130XL). The instrument was approved for sole source purchase because of several key and necessary features not included on competing instruments: dual 384-well microplate format, 5-color fluorophore detection, one base pair resolution for single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) detection and capillary scalability to increase sample throughput. This equipment, while still functioning, has exceeded its lifecycle and is now prone to breakdowns resulting in costly down time for the MAS program at SCRDC. Since 2003, the biotechnology instrumentation landscape has shifted. While the ABI-3130XL has given rise to the higher capacity ABI-3730XL Genetic Analyzer which focuses on improved fragment analysis throughput by incorporating a 96-capillary array and 5 color fluorophore detection , some competing CE manufacturers have tailored their instruments to multiple assays other than fragment analysis such as SDS-PAGE protein separation, isoelectric focusing, carbohydrate analysis, drug analysis and capillary electrophoresis mass spectrometry (CE/MS). This has resulted in multidisciplinary instruments that do many things but must trade off important fragment analysis features to do so. Other competing manufacturers have chosen to build fragment analyzers that offer faster analysis andare cheaper to purchase than the ABI-3730XL, but are incapable of detecting the SNP base changes necessary for MAS at SCRDC. No Substitute Justification: The ABI 3730XL is the only instrument that has the following combination of operationally required specifications: 1) Dual 384 well-plate format 2) one base pair resolution for single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) detection 3) 96-capillary array 4) 5-color fluorophore detection Aside from instrument capabilities, compatibility and operational costs were considered for the requirement as well. As mentioned above, we currently employ an ABI-3130XL Genetic Analyzer in the MAS program at SCRDC. The acquisition of an ABI-3730XL Genetic Analyzer would provide compatibility and reduced operationalcosts in the following areas: 1) Data compatibility - datasets generated on either instrument would be interchangeable. New data generated on the proposed ABI-3730XL would retain the same format and familiarity for scientists downstream as data generated on the current ABI-3130XL. The refurbished ABI3730XL Genetic Analyzer will be used to supplement and eventually replace the aging ABI-3130XL Genetic Analyzer.. When the ABI-3130XL inevitably becomes too costly to repair or irreparable, we willneed compatible instrument software to review previously generated results. 2) Consumables - plastics and reagents between the two instruments are compatible. This means less product variety to stock and inventory, translating into reduced labour costs with respect to purchasing and inventorying as well as less product wasted due to shelf life expiry. Often purchasing larger amounts of a particular consumable is subject to discounts. Purchasing like consumables for two instruments would reduce the individual consumable costs. 3) Operation - Assay protocols have already been developed and implemented with the advent of the ABI-3130XL. Since the ABI-3730XL is an upgraded version if this instrument, existing assay protocols can be applied negating theneed for time consuming and costly protocol development and troubleshooting. 4) Ease of use- SCRDC MAS technical staff possess extensive experience and knowledge regarding fragment analysis on the ABI-3130XL. Working with the ABI-3730XL would be asimple extension of this experience and knowledge rather than learning the operation, protocols and software of a completely new instrument.
