The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (the Tribunal) has received a complaint from M.D. Charlton Co. Ltd. (M.D. Charlton), of Stittsville, Ontario, concerning a procurement (Solicitation No. M0077-14-H602A) by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The solicitation is for extendable baton holders. Pursuant to subsection 30.13(2) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Act and subsection 7(2) of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal Procurement Inquiry Regulations, notice is hereby given that the Tribunal made a decision on October 30, 2017, to conduct an inquiry into the complaint.
M.D. Charlton alleges that the RCMP engaged in unjustified sole-source contracting and contract splitting by purchasing the baton holders without issuing a new competitive solicitation.
