DETERMINATION

Construction services

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) made a determination (File No. PR-2014-048) on May 21, 2015, with respect to a complaint filed by Pomerleau Inc. (Pomerleau), 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 procurement (Solicitation No. PWG299610) by Brookfield Johnson Controls Canada LP on behalf of the Department of Public Works and Government Services. The solicitation was for construction management services.

Pomerleau alleged that its bid was improperly found noncompliant because provisions of the solicitation were misinterpreted and/or misapplied, undisclosed criteria were used during the evaluation and unwarranted clarifications were sought.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was not valid.

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

3. Pursuant to subsection 5(1) of the Regulations, the Commission is required to publish each year a public notice with respect to the Commission’s telemarketing regulatory costs.

4. The Commission hereby announces in this public notice that the estimated telemarketing regulatory costs for fiscal year 2015–16 total $3.3 million.

5.
