Industrial Technical Benefits- Canada's New Approach to Offsets for Defence Procurement
More Trainings by this Expert
Industrial Technical Benefits- Canada's new approach to offsets for defence procurement: As part of the recently announced Defence Procurement Strategy, the Canadian Government has introduced a new industrial benefits policy that is designed to leverage purchases of defence equipment to create jobs and economic growth in Canada. Companies pursuing defence procurement opportunities in Canada will be required to submit value propositions, include key industrial capabilities (KIC) in their proposal and submit detailed industrial and technological benefits (ITB) plans with their proposals that will then be rated by the Government.
This webinar will provide the background to the Federal Government's new DPS, and discuss in detail value propositions, KIC's, and ITB plan requirements. The impact of this new approach on defence procurement will be assessed. Concluding remarks will include a brief discussion of some of the major procurement projects now underway in Canada.
Why should you Attend:Defence budgets are being cut throughout the world's advanced nations. While Canada is no exception, new defence policies have been introduced since 2008 that provide for predictable defence spending over a 20 year period. As part of those defence policies, the Canadian Government introduced the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy that envisaged spending more than $40B on ship replacement programs over the next 15 years.
With the exception of the USA, this is probably one of the largest military ship construction programs anywhere in the world today. Coupled to the NSPS is a recently announced Defence Procurement Strategy that reinforces the industrial benefits program required for all defence procurement; a program that in many ways is even more demanding than previous policies. If you are considering pursuing defence procurement opportunities in Canada, you will need to join this webinar to be up to date on the new Canadian policy

Anthony Goode After 30 years of commissioned service in the Canadian Navy, during which he commanded HMC Ships THUNDER, CHIGNECTO, SAGUENAY and ALGONQUIN, as well as Training Group Pacific, Fourth Destroyer Squadron and Royal Roads Military College, Tony Goode retired as the CF Naval Attache at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC in 1996 to join Litton Systems Canada (now L-3 Electronic Systems) as the Program Manager for the Tribal Class Update and Modernization Program (TRUMP). As that program wound down, Tony assumed responsibilities for program management of the CP 140 Mission Systems Avionics Engineering and In Service Support program and other related contracts.
Moving from Toronto to L-3's Halifax facility in late 1997, he assumed responsibility for starting up the Vehicle Electronics manufacturing program for the Canadian Army's Light Armoured Vehicle program. With the then General Motors Defence as the main customer, vehicle electronics developed one of the largest programs at the Halifax facility. It expanded even further with award of a contract from the GMD/GDLS joint venture for the US Army's Stryker Vehicle program to build all of the vehicle electronics for over 2000 vehicles.
In 2003, Capt Goode moved from Program Management to Business Development and was appointed Director of Business Development for L-3 Electronic Systems. He retired from L-3 in 2006 to join CFN Consultants Atlantic in their Aerospace and Defence consulting practice. In addition, he is currently the VP for Business Development for the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Nova Scotia. He belongs to the Naval Officers Association, NS Branch and is an active Rotarian.
Tony is a graduate of the Royal Military College of Canada and the National Defence College of Canada.
