DETERMINATION

Professional, administrative and management support services

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) made a determination (File No. PR-2016-001) on August 19, 2016, with respect to a complaint filed by The Access Information Agency Inc. (AIA), of Ottawa, Ontario, pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. 47 (4th Supp.), concerning a request for availability issued by the Department of Global Affairs (GAC) pursuant to the standing offer for temporary help services (E60ZN-110002/131/ZN). The solicitation was for the provision of services by a privacy consultant.

AIA alleges that its bid was not properly evaluated, that GAC used undisclosed criteria to evaluate AIA’s bid, that GAC did not provide any details relating to the evaluation of AIA’s bid and that GAC did not provide AIA with information concerning the characteristics and advantages of the winning bid. AIA also objected to GAC’s decision to cancel the request for availability and to issue a new one.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of the Agreement on Internal Trade, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was valid in part.

Further information may be obtained from the Registrar, Canadian International Trade Tribunal Secretariat, 333 Laurier Avenue West, 15th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), citt-tcce@tribunal.gc.ca (email).
