Communications, detection and fibre optics

Notice is hereby given that the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) issued an order on July 3, 2008, with respect to a complaint (File No. PR-2008-012) filed by Cisco Systems Canada Co. (Cisco), of Toronto, Ontario, under subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C. 1985 (4th Supp.), c. 47, concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. M2989-084976/A) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC) on behalf of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The solicitation was for the provision of a telephone system.

Cisco alleged that PWGSC improperly issued a competitive solicitation for the requirement instead of using existing standing offers and that PWGSC improperly biased the technical specifications in favour of Nortel brand equipment on a no-substitute basis and thereby failed to ensure equal access to the procurement.

Having found that the complaint had no valid basis, the Tribunal, pursuant to paragraph 10(a) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Procurement Inquiry Regulations, dismissed the complaint.

Further information may be obtained from the Secretary, Canadian International Trade Tribunal, Standard Life Centre, 15th Floor, 333 Laurier Avenue W, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0G7, 613-993-3595 (telephone), 613-990-2439 (fax), secretary@citt-tcce.gc.ca (email).
