All in accordance with the Annex A of the RFSA.  A Supply Arrangement (SA) is a method of supply used by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) to procure goods and services. A SA is an arrangement between Canada and pre-qualified suppliers that allows identified users to solicit bids from a pool of pre-qualified suppliers for specific requirements within the scope of a SA. A SA is not a contract for the provision of the goods and services described in it and neither party is legally bound as a result of signing a SA alone. The intent of a SA is to establish a framework to permit expeditious processing of "individual bid solicitations" which result in legally binding contracts for the goods and services described in those bid solicitations.  On-going Opportunity for Qualification This notice is being issued as the perpetual Notice to the Supply Arrangement (SA) (EE517-121480) to supply on an as-and-when-requested basis, for Public Works and Government Services Canada, environmental investigation of sites in the Province of Quebec, exlcuding territories covered by the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement. The objective is to invite additional suppliers to submitarrangements to become pre-qualified Suppliers under Terms and Conditions of  SA EE517-121480 until September 30, 2017.  Pre qualified suppliers for which a SA has already been issued under EE517-121480/A or EE517-121480/B or EE517-121480/C or EE517-121480/D, and which is still valid, do not have to submit a new arrangement.  Failure to Qualify: PWGSC will notify all suppliers that fail to qualify and identify the reason their proposal has been non-compliant.  During the 6 months following notice toa supplier of its failure to qualify, that supplier may submit additional documentation supporting its qualification. Provided the Supplier advises PWGSC, within such period, that it considers its proposal complete, PWGSC will then, subject to Canada'sright to conduct evaluations in cycles, re-evaluation the updated proposal.   CYCLES DE QUALIFICATION  Due to the resources required to evaluate the proposals, Canada reserves the right to conduct the evaluation of proposals semi-annually (that is,Canada may gather proposals received over a six-month period, in order to conduct the evaluation of the proposals concurrently as part of a single cycle of evaluations).  Evaluation Procedures Arrangements will be assessed in accordance with the entire requirement of the Request For Supply Arrangements (RFSA) including the technical evaluation criteria. No financial criteria are evaluated under this RFSA. Financial criteria will be requested during "individual bid solicitations" sent directly to pre-qualified Suppliers of EE517-121480 SA.  All compliant Offerors will receive a SA.  SET-ASIDE PROGRAM FOR ABORIGINAL BUSINESS (APPLICABLEONLY TO A PORTION OF THE RFSA):  A portion of this procurement has been set aside under the federal government'sProcurement Strategy for Aboriginal Business (PSAB).  In order to be considered, firms must certify that they qualify as an Aboriginal business as defined in the PSAB and that they will comply with all requirements of the PSAB.  Where a Supplier wishes its Arrangement to be considered for set aside for Aboriginal business, Suppliers must complete and sign the certification entitled "Owner/Employee Certification Set-aside for Aboriginal Business" attached as attachment 1.

Web Hosting Services

Industry Canada | Published December 5, 2016  -  Deadline January 16, 2017

1.0 PURPOSE

The departments of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) jointly require the services of a contractor to provide web hosting services. The services will be required for a one (1) year period commencing from date of contract award.

At its own discretion, ISED/AAFC may decide to exercise the option to extend the term of the contract by two (2) additional one (1) year periods.

2.0 TITLE OF PROJECT

Web Hosting Services

3.0 BACKGROUND

ISED and AAFC are responsible for providing website support services for multi-jurisdictional partnerships across Canada. To meet partner business requirements, these websites cannot be hosted on ISED or AAFC infrastructure and must be hosted by a third party provider. At the present time, ISED/AAFC requires these managed web hosting services for BizPaL, AgPal and the Canada Business Network, but may also require web hosting services for additional website(s) as business requirements evolve.

On behalf of ISED/AAFC, the current suppliers provide fully managed web hosting services.

BizPaL

BizPaL is a unique collaboration of federal, provincial/territorial (FPT), and local governments working together in a new service delivery model to improve access to information on permits and licenses required from all levels of government to start up and operate a business. Businesses use a simple on line tool to identify a customized list of licenses and permits for a chosen business sector in a particular geographic location. BizPaL is readily accessible by taking a no "wrong door" approach, meaning the service is available on all partner web sites. Currently, all provinces/territories and 700+ municipalities are participating in BizPaL.

To facilitate the delivery of the BizPaL service, the procurement of infrastructure as services is required to host the BizPaL technology platform. The technology platform must be hosted by a third party provider in accordance with the Official BizPaL Agreements, the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and the Intergovernmental Letters of Agreement (ILA), including signatories from multi layers of government.

AgPal

AgPal is a web-based discovery tool developed by AAFC to help farmers and others in the agriculture and agri-business sector find the federal, provincial, and territorial programs and services that specifically apply to them.

Canada Business Network

The Canada Business Network (CBN) is a program that delivers one stop access to reliable, up to date, relevant information and tools to Canadian businesses and entrepreneurs. CBN integrates resources from all three levels of government and not for profit groups. It provides fast and easy access to information and services online, in person or by phone.

CanadaBusiness.ca is the online service delivery channel for the CBN and is the Government of Canada’s service to business portal. The web site provides information on a wide variety of services, programs and regulations at the federal and provincial levels of government to businesses across Canada. CBN offers its clients information and referrals that are tailored to their needs, regardless of their phase in the business life cycle, geographic location or business type. The Canada Business Network provides small businesses information and assistance in:

  • starting your venture
  • managing operations
  • persevering through adverse times
  • growing your business

4.0 PROJECT REQUIREMENTS/OBJECTIVES
