Development of a National Guide on the Acquisition of LiDAR data

Natural Resources Canada | Published January 4, 2017
Winner
4DM INC
cpvs

In recent years, LiDAR has become one of the main technologies used for the acquisition of high-precision elevation data. This data has become essential in many areas of activities such as forestry, flood risk management, urban planning, and assessment of geological resources and mining, etc. To fill these growing needs, LiDAR data is increasingly being gathered across the country by various levels of government.

The development of a national guide for the acquisition of LiDAR data is a critical step in improving national coverage in high-precision elevation data, because it helps to ensure data uniformity across the country. Currently, the national guide prepared by NRCan is still in the draft stage. The main objective of this call for tenders is to bring the current draft to the status of a publishable national guide that is accepted by the user community.

 The Work is to be performed from the date of the signing of the contract to March 31st, 2017, for the Canada Centre for Geospatial Information in Sherbrooke, QC. There is no security requirement applicable to this request.

The National Capital Commission (NCC) wishes to retain Consultants to provide real estate advisory services more specifically in market research, urban planning, development strategy & strategic advice, financial analysis and negotiation.

One method of supply used by the NCC to satisfy the requirements of identified internal users is to arrange a Standing Offer Agreement (SOA) to provide goods, services or both to the NCC during a specified period. The identified internal users to be served may then be a delegated purchasing authority and may access the source of supply directly, as and when requested, by issuing purchase orders detailing the exact quantities of goods or services they wish to order from the Offeror at a particular time during the effective period of the Offeror’s offer and in accordance with the predetermined conditions. This method of supply is particularly useful in acquiring frequently ordered commercially and non-commercially available goods or services when the total volume or value of goods or level of services that may be required by one or more identified users can be estimated beforehand, but it is not possible at the outset to identify the exact requirements for any given user at a specific time in the future. The NCC foresees a potential need to retain the services of firms to provide REAL ESTATE ADVISORY SERVICES, as more particularly stated herein and in the attached; you are hereby invited to provide to the NCC a Standing Offer. If you wish to submit an offer you are required to do so, on the enclosed forms and format. Please be advised that the quantity of goods and/or services and the estimated expenditure specified in the attached are only an approximation of requirements given in good faith. The making of a standing offer by the Offeror shall not constitute an agreement by the NCC to order any or all of the said goods and\or services. The NCC may make one or several purchase orders against a Standing Offer, each such purchase orders constituting an acceptance of said Standing Offer for the part of the said goods or services described in the purchase order. A request does not commit the NCC to authorize the utilization of a Standing Offer or to pay any cost incurred in the submission of offers, or cost incurred in making necessary studies for the preparation thereof, or to procure or contract for any goods or services. The NCC reserves the right to reject or authorize for utilization any offer in whole or in part, with or without further discussion or negotiation.

Nature of Requirement: The purpose of this project is to provide Environment Canada with a turnkey exhibit for the Biosphere. This includes; the development of an interpretive exhibit plan, exhibit finalized concept design, detailed design package (which includes all graphic work and working drawings), provision of content development, pre-testing, fabrication, shipping, installation and training Biosphere staff for the exhibit. The purpose of the “Urban Ecosystem” exhibit is to: Provide the target audience with the fundamentals of the concept of an ecological ecosystem and the importance of applying it to cities in their geographic environments so as to give them food for thought on the issues affecting urban environments. In particular, but not exclusively, the following themes must be addressed: urban planning, infrastructure, biodiversity, pollution, transportation and mobility, development and design, heat islands, public health, consumerism, housing, energy, biodiversity, water management, waste treatment, emergency measures, urban agriculture, the ecological footprint concept, resilient city, adaptability to future issues, as well as urban governance. Provide a museum experience focused on the context of the Montreal region, but where foreign visitors (most of our visitors come from western cities) can recognize that the main points of what is presented also apply to their own reality. Help visitors understand the magnitude of the challenges to be met so that a city can function as an ecosystem in a state of equilibrium. Enhance visitors’ understanding of the importance of living in this way and present the means to guide our activities and lifestyles to get closer to this goal. It will focus on their daily lives, living environment, community and the various emerging environmental issues and challenges that will determine their choices, the organization of their city and community, their lifestyle, their citizen participation, and their ability and motivation to take action.
