Creating a Big Bang: Implementing the Procurement Ambition in Strong Secure Engaged

October 26th, 2017 | Chateau Laurier, Ottawa


Table of Contents


Summary

In June 2017, the Government of Canada released Strong, Secure, Engaged, Canada’s new defence policy. The document is ambitious in scope and promises a greater than threefold increase in capital spending. However, the government’s procurement plans must move through a procurement system that has operated at a far lower tempo in recent history. The 5th annual defence procurement conference will focus on the key defence procurement challenge arising from Strong Secure Engaged: implementation. How difficult will this ambition be to implement? How do we get there from here? Can the status quo procurement system (institutional arrangements, governance structure, capacity, skill levels, etc.) with planned adjustments deliver this new policy on schedule? The day’s program has been constructed to examine three subjects that are of significant importance to delivering on these objectives: what are the government’s plans and how difficult will they be to achieve? What factors are critical for successful implementation? How does Canada actually move forward to implement Strong Secure Engaged? Can Canada learn from ‘best practices’ in other countries, or do we have to solve our issues in our own way?
