Conference Report 


Date: October 26, 2016 1000hrs – 1800hrs

Location: Fairmont Château Laurier (Adam Room)

In its 2015 campaign platform, the Liberal Party of Canada committed to acquire equipment faster, and to do so with vigorous Parliamentary oversight and not lapse defence funds. The Minister of National Defence’s mandate letter subsequently directed him work with the Minister of Public Services and Procurement to launch an open and transparent competition to replace the CF-18 fighter aircraft and to invest in strengthening the Navy, while meeting the commitments made as part of the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy. More recently, the Defence Policy Review Public Consultation Document noted that an effective defence procurement process and a strong Canadian defence industrial base are important to Canada’s security and economy, and that even in light of recent changes, there is still room to improve Canada’s defence procurement process.

This defence policy conference will address the key challenges with respect to defence procurement in Canada. The program has been constructed to examine three subjects that are of significant importance to defence procurement generally: The treatment of intellectual property in defence acquisitions; managing life-cycle affordability; and improving defence procurement outcomes in Canada.
