Sub-program 3.4.3 - Fleet Procurement


The Canadian Coast Guard Fleet Procurement Program plans, manages, verifies, and accepts the design and construction of new large and small vessels, air cushioned vehicles, helicopters, and small craft consistent with the Canadian Coast Guard's operational requirements as identified in the Fleet Renewal Plan and the Integrated Investment Plan. The Program provides project management support to ensure effective and efficient project integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communications, risk, and procurement. As required, Fleet Procurement Program delivery is coordinated with Public Works and Government Services Canada. Activities associated with Fleet Procurement are also guided by a number of international and national trade agreements, and legal instruments such as the Financial Administration Act and Government Contract Regulations, as well as policies, directives, and guidelines provided by Treasury Board, Industry Canada, and Public Works and Government Services Canada. Fundamental authority for building fleet capability is found in the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Oceans Act.
