Defence & Security Procurement

In Canada, successfully winning defence contracts for goods and services is a complex and often very challenging endeavour. At David Pratt & Associates, we have specialists with many years of experience in this field to help companies navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of procurement.

They include Alan Williams, a former Assistant Deputy Minister (ADM) (Materiel) at DND and ADM (Acquisitions) in the former Department of Public Works (now Public Services and Procurement). Other experts include VAdm (Ret’d) Denis Rouleau who served as Vice Chief of the Defence Staff, BGen (Ret’d) Peter Holt, a former Director General of Land Equipment Program Management and MGen (Ret’d) Duff Sullivan, a former RCAF fighter pilot and Director General of Capability Development.

Together they provide guidance on the overall procurement process, statements of requirements, bid team organization, marketing strategies, equipment testing and advice on selecting suitable Canadian partners to maximize Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITBs).  Our objective is to provide clients with full situational awareness to position them for success.
