Nature of Requirements:
This Solicitation (# W8486-206245/A) is for the Operational Clothing & Footwear Consolidated Contract (OCFC2) and is directly linked to all previous Solicitations posted on BuyandSell under the W8486-137549 series.
The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) is responsible for protecting Canada and defending its sovereignty, defending North America and contributing to international peace and security. To carry out their responsibilities, CAF members must be equipped with operational clothing and footwear (OCF) that provides the necessary protection and operational mobility to conduct daily operations anywhere in the world.
OCFC2 builds on the existing Consolidated Clothing Contract (C3) model operating in DND today for dress and occupational / environment uniform commodities, offering assurance of a tried and proven business model which has evolved through the last 20 years.
For all items stipulated under contract, a prime vendor would be responsible for their acquisition, as well as inventory and distribution management and other services. This managed clothing solution (MCS) provides for the opportunity to develop a direct delivery system between the contractor and the individual military member. In addition, OCFC2 will allow for lower contract management and administrative overhead, lower inventory, improved acquisition cycles, improved response times for corrective actions and product improvement while allowing the apparel, textile and footwear industries to remain competitive, innovative and responsive.
The MCS will provide end-to-end management of the DND supply chain for Operational Clothing and Footwear (OCF), from acquisition and/or manufacturing to inventory management to distribution. It will include professional and design services as well as configuration management.
The successful bidder will supply DND with a complete supply chain management approach that encompasses program management services, professional services, manufacturing, warehousing and inventory management, order processing and management, and distribution and delivery.
The MCS will also provide an online Order Management System (OMS) for use by Authorized Users who will order items for Direct Delivery to the address of their choice.
National and international deliveries may be required by the successful Bidder; destinations will only be specified at time of order.
Period of the Contract
The contract period will be for an initial period of 6 years from the date of the contract, with the option to extend the term of the contract by up to fourteen (14) additional one (1) year period under the same terms and conditions.
There are security requirements associated with this requirement. For additional information, consult Part 6 – Security, Financial and Other Requirements, and Part 7 – Resulting Contract Clauses.
