Pre-Notification of Release of RFP
Supply of Concrete and Aggregate
Hydro One Networks Inc. and its affiliates (“Hydro One”) are preparing to release a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) on or around August 1, 2017 for two categories of Construction Materials. The materials in scope for this RFP are:
(i) Supply and delivery of Ready-Mix Concrete;
(ii) Supply and delivery of Aggregate, Sand, and Topsoil
Hydro One’s intent is to select (at Hydro One’s discretion) a set of preferred suppliers who have experience in providing reliable, high quality Concrete and Aggregate at competitive rates. Hydro One will ask suppliers to provide information about all applicable pits, quarries, and concrete mixing sites that are owned, operated, partnered with, or subcontracted by the supplier in Ontario. As such, the requested information may include: physical location (longitude & latitude), available materials, base price for materials, shipping rates per metric tonne-kilometer or cubic meter, shut-down dates, and approximate output volumes per site.
A key focus for this sourcing event is to supply diversity of these materials in Northern Ontario where quick delivery and time between loads can be challenging. As such, Hydro One will be exploring ways to improve geographical coverage by optimizing the supplier base, and encouraging larger suppliers to seek local sub-contracting or partnership opportunities. Additionally, Hydro One is actively looking for ways to provide opportunities for Indigenous suppliers* and non-Indigenous suppliers that have significant Indigenous participation**. Indigenous suppliers are invited to bid on their own behalf, or work with other suppliers for subcontracting or partnership opportunities.
