If no other supplier submits, on or before the closing date, a Statement of Capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, the contracting authority may then proceed with the award. However, should a Statement of Capabilities be found to meet the requirements set out in the ACAN, then the contracting authority will proceed to a full tendering process. 2. Rights of Suppliers Suppliers who believe that they are fully qualified and available to provide the services or goods described in this ACAN may submit a Statement of Capabilities clearly demonstrating how they meet the advertised requirement. This Statement of Capabilities must be provided via e-mail only to the contact person identified in Section 12 of the Notice on or before the closing date and time of the Notice. If there is a reasonable level of evidence regarding capability, the requirements will be opened to electronic or traditional bidding processes. 3. Proposed Contractor University of Toronto Innovations & Partnerships Office Banting Institute 100 College Street, Suite 413 Toronto, Ontario, M5G 1L5 4. Definition of Requirements or Expected Results To address information needs under the Chemical Management Plan (CMP) and Clean Air Regulatory Agenda, Health Canada (HC) is proposing a three-year collaborative study with University of Toronto to provide new information on CMP priority metals in environmental media with focus on road dust particles which may enter the home environment by penetration through openings and by tracking in soil and dirt. The project will also investigate the speciation of metals in particles introduced to indoor and ambient air during resuspension (available for inhalation exposures). The speciation component will include both physical speciation (through examination of metal distribution across different size fractions) and chemical speciation (using in vitro bioaccessibility extractions that simulate human lung and gastrointestinal environments). The purpose of this contract is to support Health Canada research under the Federal Chemical Management Plan (CMP), and to address the requirement for information on metals in urban road dust. The specific objectives are to: Provide a study design for collection and chemical analysis of a set of road dust samples dust from one or more typical major urban centres in Canada . The total number of samples will be determined as part of the study design to provide adequate representation of a range of traffic volumes, speed limits and vehicular types,Complete the sample collection and submission for chemical analysis by Health Canada. Provide a statistical summary (including 25th, 50th 75th, and 95th percentiles, geomean, average and standard deviation) of concentrations of CMP3 metals in road dust.Characterize metal bioaccessibility in a representative subset of the samples (chemical speciation component) in collaboration with Health Canada.Determine particle size distribution and metal contents in different size fractions (down to the nanoscale) in resuspended road dust (physical speciation component) in collaboration with Health Canada.Interpret the metal concentrations and speciation in the context of the road network represented in the study design. 5. Minimum Requirements Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of a Statement of Capabilities that it meets the following minimum requirements: 1) expertise in the analytical chemistry techniques for characterizing metal speciation in environmental samples, with focus on platinum group elements, and the experience in road dust sampling and interpretation of metal speciation results. 2) ability to demonstrate through authored and co-authored publications in peer-reviewed scientific literature the following experience: a minimum of 10 years recent experience investigating the concentrations, fate and behaviour of a large range of metals and metalloids in roadside and urban environments; a minimum of 10 years recent experience in the development and application of analytical methods for the reliable measurement of metals (including platinum group elements) in environmental media; and a minimum of 5 years recent experience in the development and application of methods to assess metal and metalloid bioaccessibility in the human lung. 3) able to conduct the study in a major Canadian city; and 4) the lead investigator must hold a faculty position in a university. This is necessary to demonstrate that the candidate will have access to the facilities and expertise needed to complete the requirements of this contract in the stated timeframe. 6.

Analytical Services for the Detection and Quantitation of Allergens, Chemical Additives and Residue Contaminants in Food

Public Works and Government Services Canada | Published September 18, 2017  -  Deadline January 12, 2017
cpvs

Introduction

This pre-solicitation notice is provided to inform industry of a potential upcoming Request for Standing Offer (RFSO) for the procurement of commercial laboratory services related to chemical hazards found in food products. The intent of this notice is to allow industry additional time to undergo method validation and accreditation, and identifies the potential Methods of interest and assess capability for both method accreditation and sample volume. An RFSO is anticipated mid-late fall of 2017.

No response to this notice is required.

Background

The CFIA is a federal regulatory agency with a mission to safeguard food, animals and plants, which enhances the health and well-being of Canada’s people, environment and economy. As Canada’s largest science-based regulator, the CFIA works with various partners to support and develop science that contributes to evidence-based decisions that better protect Canada's food, animal and plant resources.

In order to attain a better understanding of the food safety risks that Canadians may be exposed to, the CFIA developed a series of surveys to target and profile commodities in the non-federally registered sector. Foods, such as bakery products, grains, grain products, juices, snack foods, beverages, coffee and tea, meal replacements, spices and seasonings, are subjected to analysis for certain hazards (allergen, chemical residues, contaminants and toxins). The collective results obtained through these Surveys will enable CFIA to:

  • enhance capacity to identify risks, to determine their origin, and to reduce and mitigate these risks;
  • to provide inspectors with additional tools to their activities, verify compliance, and take enforcement actions;
  • to improve consumers' ability to be well-engaged, in order to make informed decisions they must play an active role in the safety of their food;
  • to help industry and stakeholders play an active role in the safety of food by improving the Agency's guidance to assist them in implementing effective control systems.

As these data are to be used in health risk assessments, the supplier(s) must meet stringent quality assurance criteria. While, CFIA is continuously maintaining and monitoring these criteria, given the nature of the ever evolving food science and food industry, changes and modification to the list may happen in the upcoming RFSO. 

Requirement

The Supplier will be required to perform commercial laboratory services for the delivery of targeted surveys of allergens, chemical additives and residue contaminants (hazards) in food. The services will be conducted across Canada and be delivered to the National Capital Region (NCR).

The Supplier must collect the sample as defined in the sample plan and provide testing for one or more hazards in accordance with analytical methods and standard operating procedures (SOP). These methods must be accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) in the Program Specialty Area for Agriculture and Food Products, or under the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA).

Annex A, “Targeted Surveys Hazards Methods and Criteria” identifies all targeted hazards, along with Method Reference, estimated sample volume, possible Commodity (of which the method must be validated in), required analytes and minimum detection limits. This table is to provide useful information for potential bidders to develop their analytical methods and standard operating procedures (SOP), thus achieve the accreditation as required. The required detection limits are minimums and CFIA may preferentially rate those with more desirable detection limits during the evaluation process.

CALA http://www.cala.ca

Proposed Period of Service

The services are required for the period commencing on standing offer issuance (estimated to be April 2018) to 31 March 2021 with up to two option periods of one year each.

Policy

This procurement is subject to the Canadian Free Trade Agreement. This procurement consists of Quality Control, Testing, Inspection and Technical Representative Services which are excluded from the application of the NAFTA as per Annex 1001.1b-2, Class H and is not listed under the WTO-AGP.

The Comprehensive Land Claims Agreements (CLCAs) will not be applicable to this procurement, as no Work will be conducted within a CLCA area. 

The Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal business will not apply to this procurement as the services will not be delivered to or for an Aboriginal population and Canada has elected not to designate the procurement as being restricted exclusively to qualified Aboriginal suppliers.

The requirement will be limited to Canadian goods and/or services.

Dry Chemical Packaging, Storage and Handling Requirements

We are concerned with the amount of liquid chemicals being used and stored on campus. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, reduce freight charges and increase safety, we are asking for solid chemical feed and control programs for the cooling systems. This ensures the least amount of packaging material is used and makes storage easier due to the concentrated form of the chemistry. Minimal handling is allowed but must be minimized (i.e. placing solid bricks in feeder/dispenser is allowed). Training regarding proper PPE shall be provided at no additional cost. In addition, biocides should be handled with care to minimize contact with operators and workers. In order to minimize our liability in this regard, we require the following regarding chemical packaging, delivery and storage.

***Chemical Packaging Requirements:

a) Chemical packaging material must be recyclable and made of cardboard. Actual chemical bricks shall retain a light plastic wrapper to minimize dust until product can be place in dissolver.

b) Chemical packaging must provide >90% reduction in packaging material by weight as compared to 5 gallon pails.

c) There shall be no specified Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) required for handling the chemical bricks.

***Chemical Shipping Requirements:

a) Chemical containers or boxes must be capable of shipping overnight for emergency use.

b) Deliveries must not require specialized training or additional safety precautions.

c) Boxes of solid chemistry must be capable of being stored in a cabinet to minimize chemical footprint.

1. Chemical control panel for bleed control and inject of chemical is to meet the following minimum requirements:

· The Controller must be able to directly monitor and control both the addition of the corrosion inhibitor, the Primary Oxidizing Biocide and the secondary biocide. It must also be able to measure the active polymer in the system.

· The controller must have the ability to monitor and control conductivity (bleed).

· The controller is to be equipped with an automatic system that detects and reacts to Biological Activity real time to base feed and control strategies on both planktonic and sessile bacteria levels. The feed strategies must allow for manual, slug-based or timer feed options. This shall include pre-bleed and lockout capability.

· The controller must also be capable of monitoring and controlling the condenser water’s pH, and ORP.

· The control system must have in-line mild steel and copper corrosion probes, and be capable of sending those readings to the controller for instantaneous corrosion rate measurements.

· The unit must be capable of measuring turbidity.

· The controller must have the ability for remote monitoring and control, either through a phone line, or a web based system. It must also be able to send Alarms via phones, texts and/or emails.

· The controller must be equipped with a Data Management program, capable of storing measured values for a one year period, and be able to generate graphs and reports on any or all of the variables.

· Additional measurement capabilities shall include temperature, cell fouling, background fluorescence, relay status, and pulse counter with water meter.

· The controller shall be capable of calculating the following parameters: Holding Time Index, System Volume, Blowdown Rate, Heat Rejection, Makeup Water Rate, Recirculation Rate, Pump Duty, and Product Usage.

· The controller shall have additional two (2) 4/20 mA input relays and eight (8) additional output relays.

Large System Dry Chemical Addition and Control (two systems on site)

We are very concerned with our environmental foot print and the safety aspects of our cooling water program and are requiring a solid chemistry feed and control program. The program shall have the ability to have each component (inhibitor and biocides) to be in a solid form along with real time control of the solid form inhibitor chemistry.

Treatment Dispenser

The solid chemistry dispenser shall meet the following minimum requirements:

· The capacity of the dispensing tube shall equate to the volume of active product in a 5 to 15 gallon container.

· The reservoir that contains the dissolving solid brick chemistry shall have 3 level sensors to minimize chemical spills.

· At least one level sensor must be capable of shutting down the flow to prevent overflow conditions.

· The reservoir shall be capable of doubling its capacity with two solid dispenser units and maintain one common reservoir to simplify feed and demand strategies based on real time control.

· Dispenser shall be capable of automatically notifying the operator of low inventory chemical levels.

· Dispenser must contain an automatic safety shut off when the inventory lid is opened to prevent spray or spill incidences.

· Dispenser shall be IP-67 rated for environmental conditions.

Cooling Towers – Conventional Treatment (17 systems on site, most year round operation)

The NRCC recognizes that technology changes over time and updating is required from time to time. Due to the number of cooling towers and the differences in size and operation of each, there are various controller platforms used. As each unit is assessed and replaced the following criteria will be followed

Chemical control panel for bleed control and injection of chemical is to meet the following minimum requirements:

CLOSED LOOP CHEMICAL MANAGEMENT

The NRCC has over 100 closed loops located in the various buildings on the Montreal Rd. campus. The closed loops require corrosion inhibitor to be maintained to prolong the life of the systems and ensure the highest heat exchange capacity. Consideration will need to be made in terms of quantity of treatment these systems on an ongoing basis. Professional guidance will be required if a system becomes a challenge to the staff of NRCC with regards to the correcting of the systems chemistry.
