Procurement — Market research update (April 2020)

April 6th, 2020 6:55 pm

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority conducted an initial round of market research as part of preparing for the procurement process for the Roberts Bank Terminal 2 Project this spring. By conducting market research, the port authority is able to hear from a cross-section of concessionaire leads, financiers, operators and infrastructure developers about their thoughts on possible procurement options for construction and operation of the proposed project. Information received during market research will help inform selection of a procurement delivery model.

The first round of market research is now complete and we thank participants for their contributions. Results of the research will be shared in future updates. We may follow up with participants to explore ideas and questions that were raised in the first round. The discussion guide for the first round of research is available in the procurement documents section.

Currently, we are seeking input on questions related to rail operations related to the project. These questions can be found in our rail strategy market sounding document.

After we have selected a procurement delivery model, we anticipate conducting a market sounding process. More information about future market sounding efforts will be made available on this website and through our procurement newsletter.
