Firms intending to submit tenders on this project should obtain tender documents through the Buyandsell.gc.ca TMA services provider. Addenda, when issued, will be available from the Buyandsell.gc.ca TMA service provider. Firms that elect to base their bids on tender documents obtained from other sources do so at their own risk and will be solely responsible to inform the tender calling authority of their intention to bid.

It is mandatory that the bidder attends one of the site visits at the designated date and time. At least one representative from proponents that intend to bid must attend. The site visits will be held on July 6th, 2020 and July 8th, 2020 at 9:00 am. Meet Scott Jansen at Mississauga Building, Main Entrance, 2620 Speakman Drive Missisauga, ON. Bidders who, for any reason, cannot attend at the specified date and time will not be given an alternative appointment to view the site and their tenders, therefore, will be considered as non-responsive. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

* Due to COVID-19, we are taking additional measures to protect you and our employees at the site visits.

  • To allow NRC to prepare for the site visits, all proponents are asked to pre-register 48 hours ahead of the job showing. Please register by emailing Masood JahanMir (Masood.jahanmir@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca). Proponents shall provide contact name, email and phone number of person attending.
  • At the site visit, to limit contact and risks:
    • The proponents will stay and wait in their vehicle until being called to the site visit meeting point by the NRC Departmental Representative.
    • The proponents will not be asked to sign the Attendance Form. Upon arrival at the site visit meeting point, The NRC Departmental Representative will gather the proponent’s identification and contact information verbally and mark it down on the Attendance Form on their behalf. It is the responsibility of all proponents to provide their identification and contact information as mandatory proof of attendance.
    • The proponents will sanitize their hands at the hand sanitizing station.
    • The site visit will proceed with a maximum of three (3) proponents at a time. Each group will have approximate 60 minutes to review the site. The site visit will continue with the next round of three (3) proponents until each one has had a chance to review the site.
    • The site visits will take longer than usual, therefore anticipate a longer meeting duration.
    • Physical distancing: keeping a distance of at least 2 arms-length (approximately 2 metres) from others is imperative.
  • Depending on the anticipated amount of pre-registration, the NRC may decide to schedule time slots for every group of three (3) proponents. The time slot for your site visit will be confirmed by the NRC Departmental Representative by email upon pre-registration. That time will supersede the site visit meeting time specified above.
  • Proposals submitted by bidders who have not attended the site visit or failed to submit their identification and contact information verbally at the site visit will be deemed non-responsive.
