Open tender whereby all interested Suppliers may submit a Proposal.
Western is issuing this RFSQ on behalf of the UGSWO and invites natural gas suppliers to submit Qualifications for the supply of Natural Gas to the UGSWO in accordance with the requirements outlined below.
Those Proponents that are prequalified through this RFSQ process may be invited to participate in subsequent invitational procurement processes in the form of requests for tenders, request for proposals, requests for quotations or other processes as determined by the UGSWO for the procurement of any goods and or services as described in the provision of the Services.
This RFSQ is not intended to replace the competitive bid process. The prequalification process will be used to establish a list of prequalified Proponents for the supply of the UGSWO future Natural Gas requirements.
The successful Proponents will be required to enter into a GasEDI Base Contract for Sale and Purchase of Natural Gas (2005 version) with each UGSWO member in the program. If any accepted Vendor of Record already has a contract in place with any of the UGSWO members, the UGSWO members will have the option of keeping the pre-existing contract in place or adopting the GasEDI 2005. If the UGSWO member chooses to adopt the GasEDI 2005, that contract will only apply to transactions entered into after the execution of the contract. The pre-existing contract will continue to apply to all transactions entered into under the pre-existing contract.
All tender submissions must be uploaded electronically at https://uwo.bonfirehub.ca.
