Request For Proposals

As required in Council’s Procurement Policy, the purchase of goods and/or services valued at greater than $25,000 must go through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to solicit quotations from several suppliers in response to written terms of reference. The Canada Council uses MERX to post all RFP’s. Click on the link provided below to view and order the complete RFP documents from MERX. When an amendment is issued, MERX will automatically notify suppliers of the change to the RFP.

Please note that if you choose to download the RFP document directly from our website, it is your responsibility to verify regularly for any amendments or additional information that may be updated or added to the RFP.

Professional photography services for the Canada Council Art Bank

The purpose of this Request for Proposal is to establish a list of prequalified suppliers to provide professional photography services as needed for the Canada Council Art Bank. Photography services include photography of artworks for cataloguing and promotional purposes, photography of artworks on display for promotion of the Art Bank programs and photography services for events.

The Canada Council would enter into Standing Offer Agreements with successful Firms for three years with the option to extend for a further two years. A Standing Offer Agreement is an arrangement to provide goods and services at prearranged prices with set terms and conditions, for specific periods of time on an "as requested" basis. A Standing Offer is not a contract and an Order against a Standing Offer is a "Call-up".

Businesses offering their photography services in the Ottawa-Gatineau area may apply for inclusion on this list.
