Acceptance of Change of Bidder

July 27, 2011

The National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy Secretariat today announced that it had accepted the application for a change of bidder received from 7731299 Canada Inc. (Davie Canada) on July 21, 2011.

The application and all supporting documentation were received before bids closed on July 21, 2011. The application met all the legal and experience qualification criteria and contained all other attestations required in the original Solicitation of Interest and Qualification issued in September 2010.

Three bidders have submitted proposals in connection with the Request for Proposals (RFP) to build large vessels for Canada.

One shipyard will be selected to build combat vessels and another to build non-combat vessels. The two shipyards selected will be those that represent best value to Canada.

Canada will not respond to public enquiries until the evaluation process is complete and the results are announced.

More information about the NSPS is available on the web site.
