Media Advisory - Military Procurement in Canada: A Flawed System in Need of Reform?

CALGARY, March 31, 2015 /CNW/ - Reforming the procurement process is a frequent request but how do we do it? Can anything be done to overcome the political restraints that impede the process? Can we change the way defence goods are procured? Should Canada use the U.S. system as a model for reform? The School of Public Policy will release three reports over the next week on military procurement that tackle these challenges with solid recommendations. With Canada's military role overseas, procurement has become important.

The papers will be released over the next week online at www.policyschool.ca/publications
