Canadian Surface Combatant bids delayed again

The Canadian government has extended the deadline for Canadian Surface Combatant bidders who previously said they didn’t have enough time to prepare.

This is second time the submission deadline is postponed after the original April 27, 2017, deadline was moved to June 22, 2017.

The current deadline is expected to be no sooner than mid-August 2017. The government said it extended the bid to answer all questions from the bidders.

“As per the RFP, bidders can submit draft bids for review until June 15, 2017. These bids will not be scored, and financial information will not be submitted, but bidders will be informed if any part of their submission is non-compliant, so they can make adjustments before submitting a final bid,” the announcement read.

This extension will move the targeted completion of the procurement process from fall 2017 to 2018, according to the government, while ship construction remains scheduled for the the early 2020s.
