The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is seeking information on the availability of
existing stand-alone warehouse-type space
for lease, meeting the following criteria:
Information provided by the owner or an owner’s agent shall include the location of the property and building, current zoning, and area of space. Agents submitting a response to this Request for Information (RFI)
provide the RCMP with a letter from the owner authorizing them to do so.
NOTE: Sub-leased space will not be accepted and/or reviewed.
This is not a tender process, nor a request for proposals, but only an inquiry as to the availability of space to lease. The RCMP will not necessarily invite offers or lease any space. The RCMP may issue an invitation to tender for this possible leasing requirement or other leasing requirements based on information it receives as a result of this advertisement or based on any other information that may come to its attention prior to the closing date of the RFI; or it may invite offers by way of public tender. The RCMP reserves the right to proceed with an invitation to Offer to Lease by inviting only parties deemed to most effectively meet specific operational, security and public safety requirements identified in the (RFI) process. The issuance of this RFI does not create an obligation for Canada and does not bind Canada legally or otherwise, to enter into any agreement or to accept or reject any suggestions.
No payment will be made by Canada for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of your response. Canada retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.
Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
