Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Atlantic is
carrying out the Northern Watch Technology Development Project
(TDP) to demonstrate a maritime surveillance capability over a
limited portion of Barrow Strait in the vicinity of Gascoyne
Inlet, Devon Island, Nunavut.


In accordance with the attached Statement of Requirement, DRDC
Atlantic requires the temporary, exclusive use of a chartered
ship and crew commencing at 0800 hours on 08 August 2013 and
lasting until 1700 hours, 17 August 2013, with an option for up
to five (5) additional days.

The primary task of the vessel will be as a platform from which
to deploy an underwater acoustic array that will be used in the
Northern Watch TDP. The secondary task for the vessel will be
to conduct multi-beam sonar mapping of the sea bottom.

Prior to the Arctic deployment, a 3 day trial will be required
in May/June timeframe in an area local to the ship's home port.
The trial will be conducted to test the array deployment system
and assess ship manoeuverability and therefore its suitability
for the Arctic deployment. Failure of the trial for reasons of
ship capability, fittings or state of repair will result in the
contract being terminated following the trial.

In accordance with Annex "B" of the solicitation document,
bidders must communicate with the Contracting Authority in order
to be provided with equipment and personnel mobilization and
demobilization costs, prior to bid closing.

The requirement is exempt from the provisions of the World Trade
Organization Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP),
Annex 4 and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA),
Chapter Ten Annex 1001.2b Paragraph 1, however, it is subject to
the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).
