Definition of the Requirement: DND has a requirement for the provision of accreditation of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) dental services at different locations across Canada. Currently, DND engages in a nationally recognized system wide accreditation of its health care delivery, however, the dental services are not part of this process. In order to ensure the highest quality and standards of dental services provided to the members of the CAF, DND has a requirement to provide its dental services, with a nationally recognized dental accreditation process. The intent of this process is to create a model that accredits individual CAF dental treatment facilities and system.

CDAC currently has the accreditation requirements to align with the DND structure and to DND policies and processes currently in place on a national basis. Government Contracts Regulations Exception(s): The following exception to the Government Contracts Regulations is invoked for this procurement under Section 6, 6 (d) only one person or firm is capable of performing the contract.

1. Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN)

An ACAN is a public notice indicating to the supplier community that a department or agency intends to award a contract for goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier, thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed with the award to the pre-identified supplier.

2. Definition of the requirement

The Canadian Forces Health Services Group (CF H Svcs Gp) of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) has a requirement for the provision of an accreditation program from an external and independent third party for dental services.
