Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the Minister could tell this House whether price was the major deciding factor in awarding this contract to an outside company?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. No, price was not the major factor. Both firms that did submit proposals were very similar in price. It was in the evaluation of other criteria that the decision was made. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the Minister would be so kind as to inform the House as to what other criteria were considered aside from price, awarding this contract to a company outside the Northwest Territories?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I am advised that the other criteria included things such as payment terms, contract risk, contract administration, risk and flexibility, customer service and the desirability of a future competitive purchasing environment. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, is it fair to say that a company that has been doing business in the Northwest Territories and the eastern Arctic for the last 25 years, such as NTCL, did not meet these other criteria? Is that what the Minister is saying?

Mr. Speaker, The evaluation showed in these other criteria that Woodward Oil came out somewhat ahead and that was the reason for the decision. I did not say that NTCL could not meet them.

One important aspect to note in my previous answer, Mr. Speaker, was the potential for a competitive environment in the future. This is one area that was taken into account when they awarded this tender. It is also important to point out that it would appear that NTCL will be awarded the contract for delivery of about 85 percent of our total requirements across the Northwest Territories. We are not talking about a huge loss for the company. In fact, they are still going to be the largest shipper of oil for this government and for the Power Corporation in the north. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is directed to the Minister of Finance. It is in regard to the

critical issues relating to staff and unresolved personnel issues, specifically, pay equity and the collective agreement. Could the Minister update this House as to the status of those initiatives? Thank you.
