Background

The Chief Electoral Officer of Canada (“CEOC”), an agent of Parliament, exercises general direction and supervision over the conduct of elections and referendums at the federal level. The CEOC heads the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, commonly known as Elections Canada (EC).

EC has a requirement to ensure that emerging areas within the organization, agency priorities, implementation of special initiatives and anticipated changes to legislation are addressed through an optimal organization structure. Lessons learned from the 42nd Electoral Event, plans of the agency to radically improve the voter experience for the 43rd Electoral Event and the anticipated electoral reform announced by the current government, which may establish a new voting model (i.e. preferential ballot, proportional representation, other, etc.), and other potential modifications to the electoral process, all require EC to ensure it is optimally structured to respond to a demanding and changing environment.

Requirement

EC requires Organizational Review, Organizational Design and Implementation Services to review how EC is currently structured both at its headquarters where employees are employed under the Public Service Employment Act and in the field, where Field Personnel are hired under the CEA and Referendum Act. The Work entails reviewing current functions as well as structures at the corporate, sector and branch level: identifying opportunities for synergies and efficiencies and proposing better function alignments to achieve these efficiencies; recommending changes to current structure to implement the function realignment, developing plans to implement new structures including change management strategies, drafting job descriptions and supporting classification rationales.

BACKGROUND The overall objective of the Randle Reef Sediment Remediation Project is to construct a 6.2 hectare Engineered Containment Facility (ECF), designed to ensure containment of the contaminated sediment. The ECF will be constructed over approximately 20% of the contaminated sediment with additional areas capped or dredged for the management of a total of 675,000 m3 of sediments. Once the ECF is filled, it will be dewatered and capped. The end product will be utilized as a port, owned and maintained by the Hamilton Port Authority. The Randle Reef project is being undertaken by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC).

Description of Requirement

This requirement contains security requirements.

Bidders must hold an approved facility clearance for Document Safeguarding at the Protected B level prior to contract award.

OVERVIEW

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) seeks to enter into an “as-and-when” contract with a single vendor for the supply and delivery of audio recordings for English and French documents for the CRA tax programs.

CRA intends to enter into a two (2) year contract with three (3) one-year options with one contractor.

The Agency will include a minimum spend commitment of $10,000.00 Canadian over the entire period of the resulting contract, which includes any exercised option periods.

BACKGROUND

CRA makes available internal and external publications intended for use by the general public. Additionally, CRA provides publications to Canadians with disabilities in various multiple formats such as braille, large print, e-text, and audio recordings. The Agency is legally required to provide documents in multiple formats to individuals when requested.

SCOPE

Canadian taxpayers can request audio recordings of personalized and non-personalized documents at any time throughout the year. The deliverable for any given audio recording service may be required in either English or French, or both languages. Respect of delivery timelines, high levels of quality and 100% accuracy are crucial elements for audio recording services.

The annual number of audio recording Task Authorizations (TA) issued varies from year to year. Approximately 100 TAs were issued last year. The peak period during the year for recording of tax program material is from September to March.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

CRA Materiel Management policy requires that contracting be conducted in a manner that will ensure the pre-eminence of operational requirements and comply with international trade agreements. It also requires that contracting support national CRA objectives, such as protection of the environment.

In support of the CRA Sustainable Development Strategy, the Agency is committed to:

  • Carrying out its mandate in a manner consistent with the principles of sustainable development (SD) and to promote SD opportunities and obligations with respect to economic growth, social well-being, and a healthy environment. Opportunities and cooperative efforts related to SD will be supported and encouraged throughout the contract period; and
  • The purchase of green products and services that are of equal or better performance and quality where available and cost effective.

It is the policy of the CRA to:

  • Demonstrate leadership and commitment to SD; and raise the level of management and employee involvement and support for SD;
  • Communicate our SD commitment and be accountable to the public;
  • Assess the economic, social, and environmental effects of our programs, policies and plans leading to integrated and informed decision-making; and leverage sustainable development to enable efficient and innovative program delivery;
  • Monitor, measure, and report on our SD progress;
  • Enhance partnerships with clients and partners to support shared responsibility and cooperation for SD objectives; and
  • Reduce waste, ensure efficient use of resources, and comply with environmental legislation resulting in environmental stewardship.

Contractors are encouraged to identify the way that their products and/or services benefit the environment and align with the CRA Sustainable Development Strategy which can be found at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/gncy/sstnbl/menu-eng.html

PRICE ESCALATION/DE-ESCALATION

Prices for the second of the initial contract period and optional periods of service, if exercised at CRA's discretion, will be adjusted (i.e. either increased or decreased) in accordance with the following, as published by Statistics Canada.

The yearly pricing adjustments will be calculated using the Statistics Canada’s Table 1 The Consumer Price Index, major components and special aggregates, Canada, not seasonally adjusted, Special aggregates, Services, as shown through the link below.

http://www.statcan.gc.ca/

The prices of the previous contract year will be multiplied by the “% change” published for the twelve month period preceding the contract anniversary date (for the second contract year) or the month preceding the month in which the Option is exercised.

TRADE AGREEMENTS

Only AIT is applicable to this requirement.

CONTRACTOR SELECTION METHODOLOGY

The Bidder must meet all mandatory criteria applicable to this solicitation. Only the bids meeting the mandatory criteria will be evaluated and scored in accordance with the point rated evaluation criteria. Any proposal that does not achieve the minimum score of 87.6 points out of 146 will be considered non-compliant and will receive no further consideration.

To determine an overall score for each proposal, technical and price will each be given a rating value; in this case, 60% for technical and 40% for price, and then combined to derive a total combined rating.

The Bidder recommended for award of the Contract will be the compliant Bidder achieving the highest combined rating.

Trade Agreement: NONE Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Competitive Procurement Strategy: Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements: Letter of Interest (LOI) Parks Canada Agency Ontario Waterways Program Industry Day 1. Purpose and Nature of the Letter of Interest (LOI) Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) wishes to inform Industry of an upcoming program of work on behalf of Parks Canada Agency (PCA). The objective of this LOI is to advise industry of an upcoming Engagement Session which will: - Provide industry with information about the PCA Ontario waterways program. - Provide industry an opportunity to share information on current marketplace and supplier capabilities and to learn more about Government of Canada procurement processes This LOI is not a call for tender or a Request for Proposal (RFP). No agreement or contract will be entered into based on this LOI. The issuance of this LOI is not to be considered in any way a commitment by the Government of Canada, nor as authority to potential respondents to undertake any work that could be charged to Canada. This LOI is not to be considered as a commitment to issue a subsequent solicitation or award contract(s) for the work described herein. Respondents are encouraged to identify, in the information they share with Canada, any information that they feel is proprietary, third party or personal information. Please note that Canada may be obligated by law (e.g. in response to a request under the Access of Information and Privacy Act) to disclose proprietary or commercially-sensitive information concerning a respondent (for more information: http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/a-1/). Participation in this LOI is encouraged, but is not mandatory. There will be no short-listing of potential suppliers for the purposes of undertaking any future work as a result of this LOI.

Comments and input will be accepted any time up to the time when/if a follow-on solicitation is published. 2. Background Information: On March 13, 2015, the Government of Canada, announced $2.6 billion in investments for Parks Canada infrastructure across Canada. This investment announcement, the largest in PCAs history, includes support for infrastructure deferred work to heritage, visitor experience, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks & national marine conservation areas across Canada. By halting the loss of irreplaceable built heritage and renewing visitor facilities, Parks Canada is restoring the vast majority of its assets that are aging or at the end of their life-cycle, allowing current and future generations of Canadians to experience and connect meaningfully with their special places. In June 2015, infrastructure investments were announced totalling more than $330 million for Parks Canada waterway sites in Ontario. These infrastructure investments will repair, rehabilitate or replace the network of locks & bridges across Ontarios Trent-Severn Waterway. Further funding is targeted at work along the iconic Rideau Canal, including significant work along the portion of the Rideau Canal in the downtown core of the nations capital between the Ottawa Locks and Dows Lake. 3. Potential Work Scope and Constraints: In addition to the announced infrastructure investments, it is anticipated that additional work will be planned in years 2017-18 to 2019-20 to address deferred work on waterways. The majority of the work for Ontario waterways will be on the Trent Severn Waterway and the Ride au Canal. The major asset types include dams, navigation locks, canal walls, wharves and vehicular bridges (both fixed and moveable). The work will require the following industries: - Concrete - Repair and Restoration, - Carpentry, - Mechanical - Gates and Locks, - Metal Fabrication, - Painting, - Earthwork - excavation, backfill, landscaping, - Erosion Protection, - Welding, - Heavy Civil and Hydrogeology Engineering. PCA is mandated to provide navigation services on the Trent-Severn Waterway and RideauCanal between May and October of each year. Dams must be operated year-round to maintain water levels within prescribed ranges in both the navigation and non-navigation season. PCA admini sters 52 vehicular bridges on Ontario waterways providing vital linkages in communities. Bridge closures must be minimized and this is a key project constraint. Waterways infrastructure projects present challenges related to working in a marine environment, while respecting PCAs mandated responsibilities and stakeholder expectations. 4. Legislation, Trade Agreements, and Government Policies: The following is indicative of some of the legislation, trade agreements and government policies that may apply to any follow-on solicitation(s): a) Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) b) North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) c) World Trade Organization - Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP) d) Industrial and Regional Benefits (IRBs) 5.
