2- Offeror must quote their prices, for catering services, below or up to the limitation of expenditure shown in Annex B, table 1. Any offeror who exceeds the limitation of expenditure for any of the catering services, will be disqualified from the bidding process and be given no further consideration.

Due to the nature of the Request for Standing Offers, transmission of offers by facsimile to PWGSC will not be accepted.

During the evaluation process, CIHR representatives will conduct a site visit of the Offeror’s premises to determine the adequacy/accuracy of the information contained in the offer. The site visit is mandatory.

The responsive offers with the lowest evaluated prices will be recommended for issuance of a Standing Offer (Stream 1 and/or Stream 2).

At the time of call up issuance, when a requirement is identified, the identified user will contact the highest-ranked offeror to determine if the requirement can be satisfied by that offeror. If the highest-ranked offeror is able to meet the requirement, a call-up is made against its standing offer. If that offeror is unable to meet the requirement, the identified user will contact the next ranked offeror. The identified user will continue and proceed as above until one offeror indicates that it can meet the requirement of the call-up. In other words, call-ups are made based on the "right of first refusal" basis.
