Engineers Canada requests proposals for undertaking Infrastructure Resilience Professional program

2019.04.30

Engineers Canada has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for organizations to assume responsibility for Engineers Canada’s Infrastructure Resilience Professional (IRP) program. Organizations have until Friday, June 28, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. ET to submit their proposals.

The Engineers Canada Board has mandated the divestment of the IRP 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 is sustained and becomes a preferred credential or certification sought out by engineers and other professionals. The Program will be transferred in its entirety in accordance with conditions to be negotiated between Engineers Canada and the winning proponent.

Engineers Canada previously issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) for organizations wishing to undertake responsibility for its Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) Protocol. Those organizations who responded to the REOI have received an RFP for the PIEVC Protocol that has the same deadline as this IRP RFP. Engineers Canada is open to organizations who may wish to assume responsibility for both programs.

Webinar

Engineers Canada will hold an information webinar on this RFP on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. ET. This will also be an opportunity to ask questions and receive answers about the IRP program and the RFP.

Register for the webinar here. The webinar will be conducted in English.

If possible, please submit questions in writing in advance of the webinar so we are better prepared to provide answers during the session. Questions may be submitted to david.lapp@engineerscanada.ca. This does not preclude further questions being asked during the session. Questions may also be submitted in writing after the webinar, and the question (without identifying the person/organization who asked) and answer will be provided to all webinar attendees. Questions submitted in writing before or after the webinar will be answered in both English and French.
