DETERMINATION

Engines, turbines, components and accessories

Notice is hereby given that, after completing its inquiry, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) made a determination (File No. PR-2014-040) on March 25, 2015, with respect to a complaint filed by R.P.M. Tech Inc. (R.P.M.), of Laval, Quebec, pursuant to subsection 30.11(1) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. 47 (4th Supp.), concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. W7701-155973A) by the Department of Public Works and Government Services (PWGSC). The solicitation was for the provision of a loader-mounted snow blower.

R.P.M. alleged that PWGSC drafted the request for proposal specifying technical elements to the advantage of a particular manufacturer.

Having examined the evidence presented by the parties and considered the provisions of the Agreement on Internal Trade and the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Tribunal determined that the complaint was not valid.

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