THIS IS NOT A TENDER CALL

Proponents are strongly encouraged to attend the site visit to take into consideration all conditions that may affect their proposal. No further site visits will be provided.
Yukon government (YG) is responsible for the care and maintenance of the FMC. The FMC is approximately 25 square kilometers in size and located in central Yukon, 22 km north of the Town of Faro and approximately 372 km northeast of Whitehorse.
The current care and maintenance contract for the FMC expires March 31, 2012. As required by government contracting regulations, the care and maintenance contract for the FMC is being re-tendered. The new contract will commence prior to March 31, 2012 and continue until March 31, 2015.
