Report urges resolution to DND procurement delays

January 14, 2015 – Today, the CDA Institute published a paper titled Putting the ‘Armed’ Back into the Canadian Armed Forces: Improving Defence Procurement in Canada, authored by David Perry, the Institute’s Senior Security and Defence Analyst.  Mr. Perry’s paper, based on substantial interviews and a workshop, analyzes the causes of some of the problems with Canada’s defence procurement system. It suggests that the government’s Defence Procurement Strategy, announced last February, is being implemented at the right pace and offers some promise for improving defence procurement governance and “joined-up” decision making among the involved departments. Read the full report: Putting the ‘Armed’ Back into the Canadian Armed Forces”.
