RFP NO. 2022-827


The Capital Regional District (“CRD”) invites detailed proposals from suppliers (the "Proponents") in strict accordance with these Proposal Documents (CRD, RFP No. 2022-827). The proposals will be evaluated for the selection of a supplier (or suppliers) with the intent to negotiate to enter into a contract (the “Contract”) to provide the services described in Appendix “A”.

The Capital Regional District (CRD), hereinafter referred to as the "CRD”, invites Proposals for the supply and delivery of fine screen, blowers, and aeration equipment (collectively the “Goods”) for the Schooner Wastewater Treatment Plant, as well as related services for supervision of testing, training, and commissioning of the Goods.

Under this RFP, the CRD intends to select a Supplier to negotiate a Contract for the supply of the Goods and related services, based on the form of Contract attached as Appendix “D” to this RFP. The CRD’s requirements for the Goods and related services are described in the specifications included in the draft Contract.

A Contract will not necessarily result from this Request for Proposal (“RFP”).

Relationship of Supplier and the Installation Contractor

The CRD will be undertaking a separate procurement process to select an Installation Contractor for the installation of the equipment supplier under this contract at the Magic Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Installation Contractor, not the Supplier, will be responsible for supplying all necessary labour and goods to install and test the Goods supplied under this contract. 

The Supplier is to assume full responsibility for protection and safekeeping of all Goods supplied under this Contract until such time as they are delivered to the Work Site, at which time the Owner or their designate will assume full responsibility for protection and safekeeping.

The Supplier is to certify in writing that the Installation Contractor has been instructed and has all required information on how to store the Goods on site to ensure that they will not be damaged. Certification shall be submitted to the Engineer a minimum of three (3) weeks prior to shipment of the Goods.

The Supplier is responsible to properly identify and tag all items supplied under this Contract sufficiently to prevent loss.

The Supplier shall provide instructions and certify that the Goods have been off-loaded, stored, installed, tested, and commissioned in accordance with those instructions (see Certification Forms of the Specifications in Schedule 2 of Appendix D). The Supplier shall then take full responsibility for the guarantee as set out in Item 4.4 of the Appendix D, Schedule 1 - General Conditions.

Performance Security

Proposals shall be accompanied by a letter from a qualified/registered Guarantee Company indicating the willingness of the Guarantee Company to provide a Performance Security in the form of a bond in accordance with Appendix D, Schedule 1 - General Conditions.


The Proponent's attention is drawn to the provisions of Appendix D, Schedule 1 - General Conditions in which the details of the insurance required to be carried by the Supplier are specified.

The CRD will accept either a hard copy or an electronic submission.
