Q2: Has the specific GNB group that is sponsoring this procurement seen the ATIPXpress FOI system? If yes, when did they see a demonstration of this system?
A2: Yes, GNB worked with British Columbia, Alberta and PEI provincial government counterparts and were pointed to this solution. From there we explored options, generated an options evaluation document, and saw PEI's implementation. We followed up with the vendor for more information November - December 2018
Q3: Can GNB provide further details in regard to GNB's needs as identified in Attachment A, question 1.4: Fixed price for the installation, configuration and set up of ATIPXpress as per GNB needs ?

Q4: What information was provided to the vendor of ATIPXpress with respect to GNB's needs?A4: When asking for equivalent, GNB worked with jurisdictions and the vendor to ensure we documented a base level of technical and business requirements to ensure a fair evaluation of equivalency if required
