1. APPLICABILITY OF TRADE AGREEMENTS OR OTHER OBLIGATIONS:

This procurement is subject to the National Security Exception
and is excluded from the trade agreements in accordance with the
following Articles: XXIII(1) of the World Trade
Organization-Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP),
1018(1) of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and
1804 of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).

Sole sourcing applies under GCR Section 6 (d) where "only one
person or firm is capable of performing the contract" where
there is an absence of competition for technical reasons, the
goods or services can be supplied only by a particular supplier
and no knowledge of a reasonable alternative or substitute
exists.

2. CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSION OF A STATEMENT OF CAPABILITIES:

The closing date for a submission of a statement of capabilities
is given on the covering page of this notice.

An Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) allows departments and
agencies to post a notice, for no less than fifteen (15)
calendar days, indicating to the supplier community that it
intends to award a good, service or construction contract to a
pre-identified contractor. If no other supplier submits, on or
before the closing date, a Statement of Capabilities that meets
the requirements set out in the (ACAN), the contracting
authority may then proceed with the award. However, should a
Statement of Capabilities be found to meet the requirements set
out in the (ACAN), then the contracting authority will proceed
to a full tendering process.

Suppliers who consider themselves fully qualified and available
to provide the services/goods described herein in their
entirety, may submit a statement of capabilities in writing to
the contact person identified in this Notice on or before the
closing date of this Notice. The statement of capabilities must
clearly demonstrate how the supplier meets the advertised
requirements.

NOTE:
It is imperative that any capability offered does not exceed the
ThermoSight™ S150 weight and size. Minimal weight and size is
critical to the end user. The LRTWS System shall be of proven
(tested) design and be in current production. This is taken to
mean that it is currently (2011) in use with an American,
British, Canadian and Australian (ABCA) member force.

The PWGSC file number, the contracting officer's name and the
closing date of the ACAN must appear on the outside of the
envelope in block letters or, in the case of a facsimile
transmission, on the covering page.


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

Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
