Engineers Canada has issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) for organizations to assume responsibility for Engineers Canada’s Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) program. Organizations have until Friday, April 19, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. ET to submit an expression of interest to receive a Request for Proposal (RFP).
The Engineers Canada Board has mandated the divestment of the PIEVC program. Engineers Canada is not seeking financial compensation for this divestment, but rather a commitment of the assuming organization to invest time and resources to ensure the Program and access to the PIEVC Protocol is sustained in Canada and internationally. The Program will be transferred in its entirety in accordance with conditions to be negotiated between Engineers Canada and the winning proponent.
The REOI is intended to solicit interest from organizations who may wish to assume the legal, financial, and operational responsibilities of the PIEVC program. Those organizations who submit an expression of interest and who meet the eligibility requirements will receive a Request for Proposal (RFP) in late April 2019. Information sessions will also be organized for mid-May to provide more details on PIEVC for interested organizations.
Engineers Canada will also be issuing a separate RFP in late April for organizations who wish to assume responsibility for Engineers Canada’s Infrastructure Resilience Professional (IRP) program. Organizations may wish to assume responsibility for both the PIEVC and IRP programs, and organizations should indicate this in the PIEVC REOI.
