International Flood Control Played by Rules and Respected Integrity of Procurement Process
CALGARY, Jan. 29, 2016 – International Flood Control (IFC) remained in full compliance with the rules when its world-renowned flood control and prevention equipment was purchased to help Manitoba First Nations affected by major flooding.
“IFC has worked with the Manitoba government many times before, and we have always followed the rules and respected the tendering process. We won that contract fair and square through a competitive and fully transparent procurement process and we have twice been cleared of any wrongdoing by Manitoba officials,” said IFC president Paul Vickers.
The integrity of the procurement process related to the purchase of Tiger Dams has been verified by Manitoba’s Auditor General. Earlier this month, the Manitoba Ombudsman also released its final report on the investigation into the procurement process, which exonerated IFC.
“Our company is one of the world’s leading providers of flood mitigation systems, and our product has been effectively used to protect homes and lives both in Canada and abroad. We are immensely proud to have worked with the Interlake Reserves Tribal Council to help protect their communities and infrastructure from flood devastation,” said Vickers.
IFC has been proudly protecting communities for over a decade. After rigorous testing, designed by the esteemed U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Tiger Dams received the highest level of certification from the Association of State Flood Plain Managers (ASFPM) and FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial insurance companies. More emergency managers use Tiger Dams than all other flood management products combined.
IFC’s work has earned the company an international reputation as a leading provider of flood mitigation systems, and its proven Tiger Dams product has been at the heart of recovery efforts at devastated sites including Hurricane Sandy, the 2011 Japanese tsunami, and has most recently been deployed in Southern California and the U.S. Mid-West.
