HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS

Department of National Defence | Published January 9, 2017  -  Deadline February 17, 2017
Trade Agreement: NONE Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Competitive Procurement Strategy:  Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: Yes Nature of Requirements:   HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS (W3931-13KM01/D)  This PWGSC office provides procurement services to the public in English or French.  REQUIREMENT:  The Department of National Defence (DND), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), and Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) require the services of a contractor to provide and manage Health Care Providers (HCPs) on an "as-and-when requested" basis to supplement their workforces in delivering health care and health care support services. Most HCPs needed to supplement DNDs workforces are currently provided through a contract expiring on March 31, 2018. For RCMP and VAC, the provision of HCPs is currently decentralized to regional offices and the services are obtained through departmental individual contracts.  It is expected that the Request For Proposal (RFP) will result in the awarding of three separate contracts (one for each department) to one sole contractor.  The contractor will be selected based on its ability to achieve the highest combined rating of technical merit (70%) and price (30%).    The contracts will include options to acquire the services for additional locations in any Canadian region or territory, as well as an option to acquire additional services that are within the scope of the work.  The duration of the contracts will be for an initial period of four years plus a six-month estimated transition period, and options to extend the contract by additional periods up to a maximum of eight years.   The portion of this requirement where service deliveries are in Yellowknife, NT, is subject to the Tlicho Land Claims Agreement andfor service deliveries to Whitehorse, YT, the Taan Kwachan Council Final Agreement and the Kwanlin Dun First Nation Final Agreement apply.  This procurement is Conditionally Limited (Code 0-4) as defined by the Canadian Content Policy.   This procurement is not subject to Trade Agreements as Health Services are excluded from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the World Trade Organization  Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP), the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA), the Canada Peru Free Trade Agreement (CPFTA) and the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).   There are security requirements associated with this requirement. For additional information, consult Part 6 - Security, Financial and Other Requirements, and Part 7 Resulting Contract Clauses.  BACKGROUND:  This requirement is the third generation of its kind for DND.  Under the first procurement process in 2000, a contract was awarded to provide and manage HCPs from March 1, 2001 to March 31, 2005. The subsequent (and incumbent) contract was issued by PWGSC on behalf of DND in December 2004 for the provisioning and management of a workforce of health service providers tosupplement internal health service resources at thirty-six military installations located across Canada.  Due to the nature of work and the high number of resources required on a recurring basis (around 500 resources) from the contractor, there will be a need for a transition period that will consist of a gradual ramp-up approach that allows the future contractor to hire the HCPs and provide the necessary training. During the transition period, the demand for services provided by the outgoing contractor will be gradually reduced and the number of HCPs and requirements related to the new contract will gradually increase until the maximum contract capacity is reached at the end of the transition period.  INQUIRIES AND SUBMISSIONS:  Suppliers may submit their submission at any time after the posting date of the RFP up to the closing date. Inquiries regarding this RFP are to be submitted to the contracting officer listed below:  Patrick O'Sullivan Supply Team Leader Public Works and Government Services Canada Acquisitions Branch Services and Technology Acquisitions Management Sector Special Projects Initiatives Directorate Health Services Project Division Place du Portage, Phase III 11 Laurier Street, Gatineau, Quebec K1A 0S5 Telephone:819-420-2233 Email: MNDFSS.DNDHCP@pwgsc-tpsgc.gc.ca      Delivery Date: Above-mentioned  The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.

Health Information and Claims Processing Services

Health Canada | Published December 21, 2016  -  Deadline February 20, 2017
Trade Agreement: Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Competitive Procurement Strategy:  Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements:   Health Information and Claims Processing Services  Purpose  The purpose of this notice is to advise the industry of the Health Information and Claims Processing Services (HICPS) requirement for Health Canada (HC) and the Request for Information (RFI) #3 publication.  1. NIHB Program Background  The Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) Program of the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) at Health Canada provides eligible registered First Nations and recognized Inuit with a range of medically-necessary goods and services not provided through private insurance plans, provincial/territorial health and social programs or other publicly funded programs. These medically necessary benefits are:   * Pharmacy (certain prescription and over-the-counter drugs);  * Medical supplies and equipment;   * Dental care;  * Vision care;  * Other health care services such as short-term crisis intervention mental health counselling; and * Medical transportation to access medically required health services not available on reserve or in the community of residence (not part of the HICPS requirement).  NIHB is the largest program of HC, representing approximately 31% of the department's total budget and 46% of FNIHB's budget in 2014-15. Total annual expenditures for all NIHB benefit areas amounted to $1,029.1 million in fiscal year 2014-15.  As with other public and private plans, the NIHB Program does not provide direct services to clients. It relies mainly on pharmacists, dentists and other health providers to deliver services to clients. Through the Health Information and Claims Processing Services, the NIHB Program reimburses providers for the cost of eligible services. These services are essential to the NIHB Program's ability to fulfill its mandate to ensure access by First Nations and Inuit clients to needed health benefits.   2.  HICPS Overview  HICPS includes all services and supporting systems used to process Non-Insured Health Benefits claims, supporting Providers with the processing and settlement of their claims, ensuring compliance with NIHB Program policies including audit, reporting and financial control practices, automated information management systems used to process and pay claims in accordance with NIHB Program client/benefit eligibility and pricing policies.  Since 1990, Canada has retained the services of a private sector contractor to administer the following core health information and claims processing services on its behalf: * Requests and claims processing, adjudication and settlement;  * Provider registration and communications; * Payment and Financial operations;  * Systems and services in support of the various NIHB operated Review, Prior-Approval, and Predetermination Centres.  * Provider Audit program and audit recoveries; and * Data retention, collection, analysis and reporting  NIHB Program uses this third party claims processor to review and process claims for the Pharmacy, Dental Care, and Medical Supplies and Equipment. In addition to ensuring claims are processed in a timely manner and in keeping with NIHB Program policies and rules, HICPS includes a range of pre-payment and post-payment controls (including a provider audit program that covers Provider Profiling, Next Day Claim Verification, Client Confirmation Program, On-Site and Desk audit), which help to ensure the accountability of the NIHB Program. In 2014-15 a total of 21.4 million claim lines were processed through HICPS.  3. Aboriginal Participation Component  The HICPS requirement will include an Aboriginal Participation Component (APC), which is a mechanism designed to meet the Government of Canada's objectives of encouraging Aboriginal socio-economic development through federal contracting opportunities. The APC is designed to develop long-term sustainable and meaningful socio-economic benefits for Aboriginal people, businesses and communities and compliments the objectives of the Procurement Strategy for Aboriginal Businesses (PSAB).   4. Request for Information #3  This RFI #3 initiates the Industry Engagement Phase 3 of this procurement project; the first two of three planned phases has already been completed.  The purpose of RFI #1 was to inform industry of Health Canada's requirement for HICPS and to provideindustry an opportunity to provide feedback on the requirement and subsequent engagement activities. Responses to that RFI assisted Canada in initiating a dialogue about the requirements and possible solutions.  The purpose of RFI #2 was to summarize the feedback received from industry regarding the existing technological innovations and current service-delivery best practices, to communicate to industry HC's known requirements related to privacy and data security; to increase industry's understanding of HC's service-delivery model; and to provide industry with additional details on the Aboriginal Participation Component.   The purpose of this third RFI is to summarize the feedback received from industry during the RFI #2 process, and to share with industry portions of the draft Request for Proposals (RFP), including the draft Statement of Work (SOW), draft security and privacy requirements, the draft Aboriginal Participation Component structure, draft key contract requirements, and draft evaluation criteria. This RFI will provide industry an opportunity to assess and comment on the draft requirements and identify any last minute issues or major concerns. 4.1 Nature of this Request for Information  This is not a bid solicitation. This RFI will not result in the award of any contract. Potential suppliers of any goods or services described in this RFI should not reserve stock or facilities, nor allocate resources, as a result of any information contained in this RFI. Nor will this RFI result in the creation of any source list. Therefore, whether or not any potential supplier responds to this RFI, it will not preclude that supplier from participating in any future procurement. Also, the procurement of any of the goods and services described inthis RFI will not necessarily follow this RFI. This RFI is simply intended to solicit feedback from industry with respect to the subject matter described in this RFI.  4.2 Response Costs  Canada will not reimburse any organization for expenses incurred in responding to this RFI including, but not limited to, expenses incurred for participating in subsequent Engagement Activities.  4.3 Follow-up Activity  This RFI #3 is part of Engagement Phase 3; no other Engagement activities are planned or contemplated.  4.4 Communication with Industry  During the Engagement Activities subsequent to this RFI, the Contracting Authority may communicate with registered industry Participants through direct email rather than by posting additional notices on the GETS.  5. Proposed Engagement Approach   5.1 Engagement Strategy  We are currently in the third of three phases planned for the Industry Engagement process.  However, as the process evolves, additional activities could be incorporated into the engagement schedule or engagement phases may be combined, modified, or eliminated depending on timelines and feedback from industry.  Please note that participation in any of the Engagement activities is not a mandatory requirement for eventual submission of a bid; industry representatives that do not participate in the Engagement process will remain eligible to submit a bid in response to any future RFP relating to the HICPS procurement.   5.2 HICPS Engagement Milestones and Associated Timeline  The following milestones and their associated target delivery dates are estimates which have been provided for information purposes only.
