Notice Description

  Rover-Based Science Instrument Prototype

Trade Agreement: NONE
Tendering Procedures: The bidder must supply Canadian goods
and/or services
Attachment: YES (MERX) Electronic
Competitive Procurement Strategy: Best Overall Proposal
Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No
Nature of Requirements:
To develop and test terrestrial prototypes of planetary
exploration rover-based science instruments to position Canada
for future space exploration missions

This requirement is part of CSA's Exploration Core science
instruments prototyping activity that seeks to advance the
maturity of science instruments that address high priority
science measurement needs of the Canadian science community and
can provide competitive contributions to future international
Lunar and Mars missions.

All bids will be required to respond to one of four instrument
categories listed in Annex B:

1. Carbon Measurement package (for a Mars exploration scenario)
2. Atmospheric Measurement package (for a Mars exploration
scenario)
3. Sub-surface Mapping package (for a Lunar exploration scenario)
4. Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) package (for a
Mars and a Lunar exploration scenario)

Each contract resulting from this bid solicitation will not
exceed $1,230,000.00 CAD excluding the Field Deployment Phase
option (Goods and Services Tax or Harmonized Sales Tax extra, if
applicable). The number of contracts awarded will depend on the
value of the awarded contracts and the availability of funds.

The client department for this requirement is the Canadian Space
Agency.

The period of any resulting contract will be from date of
Contract up to 30 June 2012.

This requirement is limited to Canadian goods and/or services.

Intellectual property will vest with the contractor.

Proposals will be evaluated against Mandatory and Point-Rated
criteria.

Mandatory Technical Criteria

1. The Bidder must propose only one (1) project per bid.

2. The Bidder must specify the Instrument Category (as listed in
Annex B) to which the proposal is directed.

3. The Bidder must complete and submit a table that briefly
describes how the requirements presented in Annex B and the
interface requirements from Applicable Document AD-1 referred in
Annex A will be met.

Point Rated Technical Criteria

Scientific and Technical Criteria

R1. Understanding the Mission and System Requirements and
Underlying Scientific and Technical Principles (20 points)
R2. Proposed Instrument Concept (15 points)
R3. Feasibility of Achieving Objectives (15 points)

Impact Criteria

R4. Technical Innovation (10 points)
R5. Scientific Innovation (10 points)

Management

R6. Team Capability (15 points)
R7. Project Management Plan (15 points)

Mandatory Financial Criteria

1. The Bidder must submit an all inclusive Ceiling Price for the
Work (excluding the Field Deployment Phase option) that does not
exceed the maximum funding per contract of $1,230,000.00, FOB
Destination (for goods), GST/HST excluded, all applicable
customs duty and excise taxes included.

2. The Bidder must submit an all inclusive Ceiling Price for the
Field Deployment Phase, FOB Destination (for goods), GST/HST
excluded, all applicable customs duty and excise taxes included.

Selection Method - Highest Combined Rating Within Budget

To be declared responsive, a bid must:

(a) comply with all the requirements of the bid solicitation;
(b) meet all mandatory evaluation criteria;
(c) obtain the required minimum points for each criterion with a
pass mark;
(d) obtain the required minimum points overall for the technical
evaluation criteria which are subject to point rating.

Bids not meeting (a) or (b) or (c) or (d) will be declared non
responsive.

The Total Bid Price, for evaluation purposes only, will be
evaluated as follows:

Total Bid Price =     Bid price for all Work excluding Field
Deployment Phase option + Bid price for Field Deployment Phase
option

The responsive bid with the highest Point Rated Technical
Criteria score will receive a full 90% technical rating. All
other bids will be prorated compared to this highest technical
bid. This is expressed by the following formula:

Bid Rating = (Bid Score/Best Techincal Score) x90

The lowest cost responsive bid will receive a full 10% financial
rating. All other bids will be prorated against this lowest
cost. This is expressed by the following formula:

Financial Rating - (Lowest Total Price/Total Bid Price) X 10

The overall score for each bid is obtained by totalling the two
ratings. The maximum score is thus 100. This is expressed by
the following formula:

Total Score = Bid Rating + Financial Rating

The responsive bids will be grouped according to the Instrument
Category to which they have been directed. The bid receiving the
highest total score in each Instrument Category group, as
determined above, will be recommended for award of contract.

The remaining responsive bids will be ungrouped and ranked in
descending order of total score. Recommendation for award of
contract will then be in descending order of total scores of
the bids, no matter to which Instrument Category they were
directed, until no more funds are available. This method of
selection is used to ensure at least one contract holder per
Instrument Category (given responsive proposals), while
promoting fair and open competition.

In the event that two or more bids receive the same overall
score, the bid with the lowest Total Bid Price will be
recommended for award of a contract prior to the other bids with
the same overall score

Should CSA be able to obtain additional funding, the selection
for further proposals will be continued as
described above. CSA has the right to enter into contractual
agreements up to the expiry date of the
proposals, which is one-hundred and twenty (120) days from date
of closing.
Delivery Date: 30/06/2012

The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any
procurement.

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
