PROJECT TITLE: ­­­­­­­­ Mining Environmental Engineering Services – Abandoned Sites in the Yukon - Request for Standing Offer Agreements

DIAND seeks to award up to a total of two (2) Standing Offer Agreements (SOAs) to qualified Firms. Standing Offers will be offered as follow:

In a companion Request for Standing Offers (RFSO) under the Set-Aside Program for Aboriginal Businesses (PSAB), solicitation 1000180632, DIAND is seeking to establish one (1) SOA.

In the event that no SOA is awarded under the companion solicitation 1000180632 to this solicitation, DIAND may increase the number of competitively awarded SOAs under this solicitation up to a total of three (3) SOAs overall.

The period of the standing offer Agreements are from award until March 31, 2019 with two (2) one (1) year option periods;

BACKGROUND

The Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) supports northern Canadians in their efforts to improve social and economic well-being, to develop healthier, more sustainable communities and to participate more fully in Canada's political, social and economic development. The Department’s responsibility for many of the Government of Canada's roles in the North, as mandated by the DIAND Act, is met primarily through the programs and services of the Northern Affairs Organization (NAO), which supports these goals.

DIAND must balance the need to support the North's economic potential with sustainable development and environmental protection. A major component of the fulfillment of these goals is the addressing of sites in the North, on Crown lands which have become contaminated. A contaminated site is defined as: a site at which substances occur at concentrations (1) above background levels and pose (or are likely to pose) an immediate or long-term risk to human health or the environment, or (2) exceeding levels specified in relevant policies or regulations. Under Treasury Board’s Policy on Management of Real Property, all federal government departments are charged with environmental stewardship that contribute to the preservation and protection of the environment; however DIAND faces some unique challenges in the discharge of this duty.

Unlike other contaminated sites, those in the North have occurred largely as a result of private sector resource development activities on federal Crown lands. In recent decades, the number of sites, their scale, and the pressures for the Department to take action has increased, due to a large number of mine and resource industry closures and abandonment. The environment in the North also presents multiple challenges to the assessment, monitoring, and remediation of these sites. These include, but are not limited to: the uniqueness of the climate, ecology, and land composition; their remote location, and the relatively short window open for work to be conducted. Canada’s North is also home to a diverse group of peoples. Northern communities, often reliant on traditional food sources, have been identified as being particularly vulnerable to the potential negative impact of contaminated sites, on their health and safety, and the environment in which they live. The Department further recognizes the need to include Northern communities and businesses in the assessment, monitoring and remediation of contaminated sites.

The Northern Contaminated Sites Branch (NCSB – formerly the Northern Contaminated Sites Program) within DIAND’s NAO is responsible for a portfolio of abandoned mine and other sites in the North, which require assessment, Care and Maintenance, remediation and closure to mitigate the effects of contamination on environmental and human health and safety, as well as monitoring to validate the impacts of these activities on the reduction of environmental and human health risks. This responsibility extends to a number of sites within the Yukon Territory, including a variety of former mines and other sites. Many of these sites are remote, located proximate to isolated community settlements, and some are located within the Traditional Territory of Yukon’s First Nations peoples.

To support the work of the Branch, the Department requires access to professional advisory and technical services in a variety of Mining Environmental Engineering disciplines, to supplement internal capacity and assist NCSB in moving each project forward in a manner that reduces the environmental and human health liability associated with abandoned mines in the Yukon Territory in an effective and compliant manner.

OBJECTIVE

DIAND requires qualified Contractors to provide Mining Environmental Engineering services to assist NCSB in its work in support of abandoned sites in the Yukon, on an as and when requested basis. Services include a variety of assessment, advisory and review services as described in section SW6.0, below.

Through this competitive procurement process, DIAND seeks to award up to a total of three (3) Standing Offer Agreements (SOAs) to qualified firms, including one (1) qualified Aboriginal Business.

In the event that the number of firms, including Aboriginal Businesses, qualified is less than the maximum number of firms required by DIAND, (as identified in section 3.2 above), DIAND reserves the right to Award additional SOAs to qualified firms, up to the maximum number of SOAs.

The objectives of the work are to support NCSB in:

  1. Meeting federal and departmental policy requirements and legal obligations regarding the management of contaminated sites;
  2. Requiring that, where a suspected contaminated site has been identified, the site be assessed in a timely, consistent and cost-effective manner;
  3. Providing a scientifically valid, risk management based framework for setting priorities, planning, implementation and reporting on the management of contaminated sites;
  4. Remediating, based on approved resource levels, all National Contaminated Sites Classification System (NCSCS) Class 1 contaminated sites in the North, on a priority basis, unless it can be demonstrated that for a specific site an alternative form of management is appropriate;
  5. Promoting the social and economic benefits that may accrue to First Nations, Inuit and Northerners when carrying out activities required by this policy; and
  6. Promoting the federal "polluter pay" principle.

Specific project objectives will be contained within any resulting Call-up(s).

Services under the resulting SOAs will be used to deliver services in support of sites in the Yukon. The mechanism will be used by DIAND’s NCSB headquarters in the National Capital Region (NCR), and by DIAND’s Yukon Regional office.
