***** AMENDMENT #2 *****
Please note the following Vendor questions and responses:
Q1. Is it possible to have the exact location (addresses, area code) for each site (We only have the name of the place ex: Tide Head, Eel River, ST. Martin, etc...in the price schedule)
A1. DTI is not able to provide the exact addresses for each location listed. This tender document contains over 100 DTI locations in which operations vary in each district. For the request of exact DTI addresses, Vendors must query to the respective District once the Vendor has been awarded the contract.
Q2. On the price schedule except from Doaktown (2 liters), all the quantity are 1...Is it the case?
A2. All quantities that are listed in the Item List are accurate and remain the same as shown on Tender Form.
Q3. What are the average annual volume for each site for each product?
A3. DTI cannot issue an annual volume on this contract. Quantities may vary depending on season, staffing, capacity, assets, and locations. As stated in the tender specifications, the approximate annual volume is 250,000 litres province wide but that may vary. It also states, each location volume may vary between 1,500 litres - 35,000 litres.
Q4. What are the approximate storage capacities of used oil for each site?
A4. All locations vary in size, storage capacity and an approximate storage capacity cannot be provided due to restrictions. Some locations may only be seasonal, as others may adjust the storage capacity to large or smaller scales, depending on stock.
Q5. Since our company is located in Quebec, do we need to follow the module d'apprentissage sur l'équité salariale (for more than 50 employee?)
A5. When an organization has 50 or more employees, all vendors must have pay equity when operating in New Brunswick. A pay Equity learning module is required to complete when working with 50 or more employees in an organization or when the contract is valued over $1,000,000.00. Where GNB will be paying fees incurred over the duration of this contract, DTI does not have an estimated dollar value for this contract. Limits may exceed threshold depending on quantities picked up and fees sustained.
Q6. The UOMA Atlantic adjust the total volume for used oil that have more than 5 % of water. Does that rule apply for the used oil collected at your facilities?
A6. All UOMA Atlantic rules apply to New Brunswick DTI contracts for pickup, disposal and transportation of used lubricant oils, antifreeze and/or any other hydrocarbon materials. On the UOMA website it states that Vendors must detect and deduct water levels over 5% and under 35% from the total volume received. As stated in the tender specifications; the allowable contamination level before the waste is considered a contaminated material is 20% water.
