Saskatchewan seeks for Fairness advisor for school project

The government of Saskatchewan (Canada) has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a fairness advisor to work on the Saskatchewan Joint-Use Schools Project.

The role of the fairness advisor involves, among others, the following tasks:

  • Report to and receive his/her primary instructions from the Chair of the Project's Steering Committee.
  • Act as an independent observer with respect to the fairness of the implementation of the Project's procurement processes.
  • Provide advice to the Project Team on matters of fairness.
  • Review Project RFQ and RFP documentation and comment on whether and the extent to which the process described may potentially cause a fairness issue.

The contracting authority is structuring a public private partnership (P3) delivery model for the Saskatchewan Joint-Use Schools Project. In October 2013 the Government of Saskatchewan announced the potential use of a Public Private Partnership (P3), and in November 2013, SaskBuilds Corporation sought financial and procurement advisors for the project.

The project will consist of building nine new joint-use elementary schools in Martensville, Regina, Saskatoon, and Warman. Each joint-use elementary school will be designed to meet the needs of Prekindergarten to Grade 8 students in both the public and Catholic school divisions.

Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 6 June 2014.
