I have not read it yet but will so soon. The highlights as presented in the media include:
- a series of governments has gutted procurement expertise,
- this has meant slower and dysfunctional procurement,
- asking people to do much more with less staff is broken, (see my post on dismissing what govt workers do)
- the Canada First Defence Strategy is dead (again).
Here is my research assignment for anyone/everyone:
All democracies seem to have trouble with defence procurement. Does Canada do it worse? Are there are common problems or is every democracy a snowflake with its own uniquely messed up procurement processes?
