VII. Technical Point-Rated Criteria

2 Greening

The Government of Canada (GC) is making "greening" a priority in its procurement activities. As a measure for achieving this through the Car Rental Directory, the GC would like to increase its relative usage of vehicles which are less harmful to the environment. Such vehicles would include but may not be limited to: hybrid-electric vehicles, factory-produced natural gas, propane or E-85 fuelled vehicles; 4 cylinder vehicles; ultra low-sulphur diesel fuelled vehicles, and other low-emission vehicles. The Offeror should provide details on its fleet as it pertains to the bidder's environmental offering for this requirement. The Offeror should also provide details on other environmental initiatives it is taking, including but not limited to: environmental vehicle maintenance; using environmentally-friendly vehicle cleaning products.

2. Submission of Offers

2.1 Environmental Performance Considerations

Canada is committed to protecting the environment by incorporating environmentally responsible principles and practices into its operations, and promoting environmental stewardship by integrating environmental performance considerations into the procurement process.

In accordance with this initiative, Offerors are asked to provide, with their offers, information regarding their use of environmentally friendly/"green" practices in their service delivery. This information will not be used in evaluation, but is for information purposes only.

Canada will use a star rating system (0-3) to assess Offerors that can prove they are greener and include such information into the resulting Standing Offers to provide Shippers with the option to choose a greener service.

The star rating for each Offeror will be identified in each successful Offeror's Standing Offer. It will then be up to each Offeror to market to Shippers their green star rating. Canada plans to identify to Shippers the Offeror's green star rating, but it is the responsibility of Offeror's to market any rating they may receive.

The maximum total points are 32.

  • No star will be given to an Offeror if it does not provide adequate information to this section, or it obtains zero (0) point.
  • One (1) star will be given to an Offeror that obtains any points up to 10 points.
  • Two (2) stars will be given to an Offeror that obtains more than 10 points and up to 20 points.
  • Three (3) stars will be given to an Offeror that obtains more than 20 points and up to 32 points.

Offerors should provide examples to demonstrate how they comply with the elements below. Canada reserves the right to verify what the Offeror claims.

Elements to be considered in the rating system are, but not limited to, the following:

  • Newer fleets that pollute less.
    • if at least 50% of fleet is less than 5 years old. (worth 4 green points)
    • if 25%-49% of the fleet is less than 5 years old. (worth 2 green points)
    • if 0%-24% of the fleet is less than 5 years old). (worth 0 green point)
  • Percentage of vehicles using Alternative Transportation Fuel (ATF) in the fleet. Alternative Transportation Fuel includes, but not limited to, the following:
    • hybrid gas/electrics, E85 (fuel mixture consisting 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline mix),
    • E10 (fuel mixture consisting of 10 per cent ethanol and 90 per cent unleaded petrol),
    • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), propane-powered vehicles, etc.
    • if at least 50% or more of the fleet uses alternative fuel. (worth 3 green points)
