The Business of Defence Procurement in Canada- A Market Over
The Defence Procurement Strategy announced in February 2014 is designed to address many of the problems that have plagued defence procurement policy for many years. It includes changes in responsibility, changes in the Industrial Regional Benefits Policy and changes in the way in which proposals are prepared and evaluated. This webinar will explain the DPS in detail and will brief participants on the major defence procurements planned over the next few years including programs for the Air Force, Navy, Army and Coast Guard.
The webinar will explore the relationship between the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy and the DPS. It will also summarize the recently Defence Acquisition Guide, which is a key part of the DPS. The webinar will explain how to do business with the Canadian Government explaining the roles of the main government departments involved in defence procurement and the potential issues that can affect new entrants into the market.
Why should you Attend:
The Federal Government, recognizing these issues introduced a new Defence Procurement Strategy(DPS) earlier this year. Once implemented, the DPS should result in more efficient procurement with fewer delays and less politicized acquisitions. But it is early days in the process and the jury is still out on the outcome. Nevertheless and despite budget reductions, Canada still intends to spend significant sums on defence procurement over the next 20 years resulting in a market that should not be ignored.
