We welcome the appointment of Mavis Cli-Michaud as Chair on the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board. 

Issued: 01/05/2017


 

The Land and Water Boards of the Mackenzie Valley are responsible for issuing water licences to community governments as required by the Waters Act. However, the responsibility of ensuring and monitoring compliance is shared with the various departments of the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).

In May 2016, the Boards requested collaboration with the GNWT to improve water licence (WL) compliancy and the effectiveness of the current licencing process.

The Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB), Sahtu Land and Water Board (SLWB), Gwich’in Land and Water Board (GLWB), and Wek’eezhii Land and Water Board (WLWB) are requesting a statement of qualifications from contractors to supply engineering and scientific support services on an as-and-when needed basis.

Please note the following responses to inquiries:

Q: Is the 20-page limit inclusive of proposed team member resumes and company rep projects, or can these be included in an Appendix?

A: The main body of the Statement of Qualifications is not to exceed 20 pages and the entire submission, including appendices, is not to exceed 90 pages. CVs of each proposed resource will not exceed 2 pages. Responses should include the following:

  • A company profile, including a summary of technical services that your organization specializes in and a description of experience relating to northern development, projects, and issues;
  • A list of all northern projects the company has worked on in an effort to identify possible conflicts of interest;
  • Qualifications and experience of individuals who will be providing specialized engineering and scientific support services;
  • Hourly and daily rates for each individual; and
  • Each proposal must identify a point of contact.

Q: For the list of all northern projects that the company has worked on to identify possible conflict of interest;

a) How far back do you require us to list projects for? 
b) Do you require the list to include projects from all three Territories, or are you looking for projects completed within the Northwest Territories?

A: Please include any major projects in the Northwest Territories over the last 10 years.

Q: Do you expect to see a CV for each person (at all levels – Senior, Intermediate, Junior), or CVs for key staff and a summary table with all potential staff outlining qualifications?

A: Please only include resumes for key staff. A summary table for other staff is sufficient.

See the Official Request for Proposals for details.
