Canadian Numbering Administration Consortium (CNAC) - Vendors invited to submit proposals for Canadian Numbering Administrator

OTTAWA, Sept. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canadian Numbering Administration Consortium (CNAC) issued on September 10, 2012 a Request for Proposals (RFP) from vendors to perform the role of Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA).

The CNA is the entity responsible for administering and issuing telephone numbers in Canada.  It operates under the regulatory supervision of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) and is funded by the Canadian telecommunications industry.  The CNA role is currently performed by Science Applications International Corporation of Canada (SAIC Canada), which has also been invited to submit a proposal.

CNAC is owned and operated by members of the Canadian telecommunications industry.  CNAC has been delegated by the CRTC the responsibility of supervising the administration of numbering resources in Canada, including contracting with a vendor to perform the CNA role. CNAC will also be the party that selects from the responses to the RFP the independent third-party vendor to perform the CNA role under a five year contract commencing 1 January 2014 and ending on 31 December 2018.

"The release of this RFP to select an independent third-party vendor to perform the CNA role for a fourth five-year term is a significant event in the industry as it is key to facilitating local exchange competition in this country," said Deirdre Massiah-Gomes, president of the CNAC.
