Title: United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Specialized Training
Solicitation Number: 20-171124

1. Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN)

An ACAN is a public notice indicating to the supplier community that a department or agency intends to award a contract for goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier, thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed with the award to the pre-identified supplier.

2. Definition of the requirement

The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development has a requirement for a Contractor to offer Government of Canada personnel specialized core training, over the course of two or more learning events, for country teams preparing for membership on the United Nations Security Council. This training must also address thematic and country priorities of interest to Canada in its preparation for a seat on the Council.
