Permanent Notice – Ongoing Opportunity to Qualify (Refresh Period)
There will be an ongoing opportunity to qualify new suppliers until 30-NOV-2020. A Request for Supply Arrangement (RFSA) will be issued in accordance with the process set out below to allow new suppliers to become qualified. Existing pre-qualified Suppliers, who have been issued a Supply Arrangement (SA), will not be required to submit a new arrangement. New Suppliers may submit a bid for a SA at any time by responding to the ongoing opportunity referred to as a “refresh”. An existing Supplier may propose to modify its arrangement by adding or removing resources. Correctional Service Canada (CSC) reserves the right to issue SA’s to bidders who qualify throughout the entire refresh period of the SA.
Process: Refresh evaluations will start approximately one (1) month after the date of submission. CSC will endeavor to evaluate those submissions received within a period of three (3) months. This schedule may require a revision due to operational requirements. Participation in a refresh evaluation is entirely optional and not required to maintain any SA.
Permanent Notice: A permanent notice will be posted on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS) for the duration of the SA describing this procurement vehicle which will invite additional suppliers to submit arrangements to become pre-qualified Suppliers and to be issued SA’s for the provision of Services.
- New Suppliers: Throughout the Supply Arrangement Period, new suppliers may submit bids to become Suppliers. No existing Supplier will be removed from the qualified supplier list because of the addition of new Suppliers.
- Existing pre-qualified Suppliers: This will also permit pre-qualified Suppliers to submit arrangements for additional resources.
- Number of Supply Arrangements: The Supplier acknowledges that CSC may issue an unlimited number of Supply Arrangements and may continue to issue Supply Arrangements to suppliers throughout the Supply Arrangement period.
