The goal is to achieve the highest feasible density point cloud / 3D model with interactive features, in order to provide prospective Public Private Partnership (P3) proponents with all of the relevant information within one customized central viewer which allows the user to navigate through a virtual version ofeach plant. The Energy Services Acquisition Program (ESAP) of PWGSC was conceived to update the heating and cooling methodology and technology installed over 50 years ago, to over 80 buildings within the NCR. As part of this modernization initiative, ESAP will be converting up to five (5) CHCPs operated in the NCR from high pressure steam / high temperature hot water systems, to low temperature hot water systems. The proposed modification will likely be carried out through a P3 procurement model. It is recommended that the Bidder or a representative of the Bidder visit the work site. Arrangements have been made for the site visit to be held at Confederation Heights Heating and Cooling Plant located at 501 Heron road, Ottawa, ON, K1V 1A7, on May3rd, 2017. The site visit will begin at 13:00 PM EDT. Safety Boots are required in order to gain access to the site visit. PWGSC is not responsible for providing safety boots, potential bidders must supply their own. Bidders are requested to communicate with the Contracting Authority no later than May 1, 2017, to confirm attendance and provide the name(s) of the person(s) who will attend. Bidders may be requested to sign an attendance sheet. Bidders who do not attend or do not send a representative will not be given an alternative appointment but they will not be precluded from submitting a bid. Any clarifications or changes to the bid solicitation resulting from the site visit will be included as an amendment to the bid solicitation. The Contractor/Offeror must, at all times during the performance of the Contract/Standing Offer, hold a valid Designated Organization Screening (DOS) with approved Document Safeguarding and Production Capabilities at the level of PROTECTED B, issued by the Canadian Industrial Security Directorate (CISD), Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC).

Subcontracts which contain security requirements are NOT to be awarded without the prior written permission of CISD/PWGSC. To be declared responsive, a bid must: a. comply with all the requirements of the bid solicitation; and b. meet all mandatory technical evaluation criteria; and c. Receive a mark of 70% in each project or higher in the point rated criteria. Bids not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) will be declared non-responsive. Neither the responsive bid obtaining the highest number of points nor the one with the lowest evaluated price will necessarily be accepted.
