DETERMINATION

Information processing and related telecommunications services

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) made a determination (File No. PR-2013-012) on November 14, 2013, with respect to a complaint filed by Access Corporate Technologies Inc. (ACT), of Ottawa, Ontario, pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C. 1985 (4th Supp.), c. 47, concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. T8080-130016) by the Department of Transport (Transport Canada). The solicitation was for the provision of the services of a human resources consultant, a change management consultant, and organizational design and classification consultants in support of key priorities within the Marine Safety and Security Program at Transport Canada.

ACT alleged that Transport Canada incorrectly awarded a contract to a non-compliant bidder.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of the Agreement on Internal Trade, the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Agreement on Government Procurement, the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement, the Canada-Peru Free Trade Agreement, the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement and the Canada-Panama Free Trade Agreement, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was not valid.
