Analysis of Programs by Strategic Outcome

Program 3.4 - Fleet Operational Readiness

Description

The Canadian Coast Guard's Fleet Operational Readiness program provides safe and reliable vessels, air cushion vehicles, helicopters, and small craft with professional crews ready to respond to on-water and maritime-related needs. This program involves fleet management and operations, fleet maintenance, and fleet asset procurement. The program ensures that the federal civilian fleet meets the current and emerging needs and priorities of Canadians and Canada. The program supports Coast Guard programs, the Department's science, fisheries, and aquaculture activities, and the activities of other federal departments that need on-water delivery to support their mandates. The Canadian Coast Guard College contributes to the delivery of this program. The legal basis for the program is found in the Constitution Act, 1867Footnote1 and the Oceans ActFootnote2.

Performance Measurement

Expected Result Performance Indicator Target Date to be Achieved
An operationally capable fleet that responds to the needs and requirements of the Government of Canada Percentage of client mission completion against client-approved planned 90% March 31, 2016
Percentage of operational days lost due to breakdowns 3% March 31, 2016
Percentage of operational life remaining of the fleet of large vessels, the fleet of small vessels and the fleet of helicopters 50% March 31, 2016

Planning Highlights - Organizational Priorities

  • Continue to implement the Fleet Renewal Plan, a multi-year initiative to renew fleet assets, and support the delivery of the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy. This includes:
    • Advancing major projects to procure new small and large vessels;
    • Carrying out repair and refit work to extend the life of existing vessels; and
    • Procuring helicopters.

The Fleet Operational Readiness program is delivered through three sub-programs as indicated in the Program Alignment Architecture:


Sub-program 3.4.1 - Fleet Operational Capability

Description

The Canadian Coast Guard's Fleet Operational Capability program includes fleet operations, fleet management and the staffing of fleet personnel. The program ensures that certified professionals safely operate vessels, air cushion vehicles, helicopters, and small craft and are ready to respond to on-water and marine related needs. The Canadian Coast Guard College is an important contributor to this program. The program is guided by a number of international conventions and domestic marine-related regulations. For example, the Coast Guard Fleet's Safety and Security Management System is modeled after the International Ship Management Code (as ratified by Canada as a member of the United Nations'Footnote3 International Maritime Organization), the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code, and the International Labour Code (applicable to Seafarers). The System design is also influenced by the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution by Ships, the findings of Transportation Safety Board Marine Investigation Reports, the internal safety investigations, the occupational safety and health regulations, and the Canada Shipping Act, 2001Footnote4 regulations governing certification of seafarers, the inspection of vessels, the marine equipment requirements, and other operational regulatory aspects. The legal basis for this program is found in the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Oceans Act.

Sub-program 3.4.2 - Fleet Maintenance

Description

The Canadian Coast Guard's Fleet Maintenance program ensures that Canadian Coast Guard's vessels, air cushioned vehicles, helicopters and small craft are available and reliable for the delivery of Canadian Coast Guard programs. The Fleet Maintenance program ensures the availability and reliability of these assets through life-cycle investment planning, engineering, maintenance, and disposal services. The Canadian Coast Guard College is an important contributor to the delivery of this program. The program is delivered in coordination with Public Works and Government Services CanadaFootnote5. Activities associated with Fleet Maintenance are guided by a number of international and national trade agreements, legal instruments such as the Financial Administration ActFootnote6 and Government Contract Regulations, as well as policies, directives, and guidelines provided by Treasury Board, Treasury Board SecretariatFootnote7, Industry CanadaFootnote8 and Public Works and Government Services Canada. The legal basis for building fleet capability is found in the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Oceans Act.

Performance Measurement

Expected Result Performance Indicator Target Date to be Achieved
A reliable fleet has the capacity to respond to the operational needs and requirements of the Government of Canada Condition rating* for the fleet of large vessels remains within acceptable risk tolerance for reliability, availability and maintainability 64.4 March 31, 2016
Condition rating* for the fleet of small vessels remains within acceptable risk tolerance for reliability, availability and maintainability 65.8 March 31, 2016

*Condition ratings:
(90-100) The vessel is in relatively new condition, or one that is extremely reliable. Only scheduled maintenance required.
(66-89) The vessel is reliable and generally capable of program delivery without disruption. Only minor repairs and scheduled maintenance required.
(35-65) The vessel is well into its service life and experiencing some unreliability and disruption to program requiring major repairs and investment.
(0-34) A heightened level of vessel unreliability likely to have an impact on program delivery which requires a significant investment or replacement.


Sub-program 3.4.3 - Fleet Procurement

Description

The Canadian Coast Guard's 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 to support the operational requirements 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. The program is coordinated with Public Works and Government Services Canada. Activities associated with fleet procurement are guided by a number of international and national trade agreements; legal instruments such as the Financial Administration Act and Government Contract Regulations; and policies, directives, and guidelines provided by Treasury Board, Industry Canada, and Public Works and Government Services Canada. The legal basis for building fleet capability is found in the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Oceans Act.
