Annual refresh of permanent suppliers list
resulting from request for standing offers #256 and #264
the permanent suppliers list resulting from rfso #256 (audit and related services) and rfso #264 (special examination auditing services) is a procurement tool for the provision of professional services to the office of the auditor general of canada (“oag”) in support of audits and special examinations for specific requirements on an “as and when required” basis where the estimated expenditure exceeds $89,600.00 (including applicable taxes).*
the oag conducts independent audits and studies that provide objective information, advice and assurance to parliament, territorial legislatures, boards of crown corporations, government and canadians. The oag`s head office is located in ottawa and its four regional offices are located in vancouver, edmonton, montréal and halifax. Please see www.oag-bvg.gc.ca for further information about the oag.
This qualification solicitation is intended as an invitation to qualify for refreshing the permanent suppliers list on an annual basis. The period for awarding any contracts resulting from a bid solicitation under this permanent suppliers list ends december 31, 2022 or at such earlier time as the oag no longer considers it to be advantageous to use the list. This qualification solicitation permits new suppliers an opportunity to qualify at any time between the annual refreshment of the permanent suppliers list by responding to the most recent refresh terms and conditions. For greater certainty, this qualification solicitation is intended only for the purpose of refreshing the oag`s permanent list of qualified suppliers. This qualification solicitation is not intended as a solicitation of bids or tenders for the purpose of awarding any standing offers or contracts and is not to be considered as a commitment to issue any bid solicitation or contract for any specific requirement.
The following five (5) service delivery streams (“streams”) apply to the permanent suppliers list: stream 1 - financial audits; stream 2 - systems and information technology audits; stream 3 - financial instruments audits and related consulting services; stream 4 actuarial services; stream 5 - special examination auditing services. Any supplier, who is the person or entity responding to, and compliant with, the requirements of this qualification solicitation and having legal capacity to contract (a “bidder”), is invited to submit a proposal with their expression of qualification for placement on the permanent suppliers list.
Existing qualified suppliers are not required to requalify, as this process is intended to enable the ongoing opportunity for qualification by new suppliers. Suppliers have previously qualified for the permanent list by submitting proposals that were selected for standing offer award or where otherwise responsive to, and compliant with, the requirements, terms and conditions of the above-noted procurement processes.
