Abstract:

The acquisition announcements over the past few years have renewed the debate about whether or not Canada should follow the path chosen by some of our Allies and create a separate procurement organization within the Canadian government to deal specifically with defence projects. Allan Williams, a former Assistant Deputy Minister (Materiel) in the Department of National Defence (DND), is a strong proponent of the need for one agency; however, there are others who argue that the creation of a separate organization will not change the underlying problems. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. This paper examines the issue of creating a single procurement agency in Canada and argues that it will not fix the underlying problems that all developed nations experience with large complex military procurement projects: cost overruns; delayed deliveries; and equipment not meeting requirements.
