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-2016-024) on December 13, 2016, with respect to a complaint filed by ADRM Technology Consulting Group Corp. (ADRM TEC), 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. DND 15/0050423) by the Department of National Defence (DND). The solicitation was for the supply of informatics professional services.

ADRM TEC alleged that DND incorrectly evaluated its bid and used undisclosed criteria when evaluating its bid, improperly concluding that its bid did not meet the conditions set out in the Request for Proposal.

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).

DETERMINATION

Textiles and apparel

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) made a determination (File No. PR-2016-027) on December 16, 2016, with respect to a complaint filed by MD Charlton Co. Ltd. (MD Charlton) of Stittsville, 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. W8486-163098/A) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC), on behalf of the Department of National Defence. The solicitation was for the supply of patrol vests.

MD Charlton alleged that in permitting potential suppliers to provide patrol vests meeting an obsolete standard (namely, standard NIJ 0101.04), PWGSC used technical specifications that discriminate against MD Charlton and other suppliers whose products meet the current standard (NIJ 0101.06).

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 not valid.

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).
