Prepared by: Steven Staples
Date: June 2007
- The government should not sign any new major military contracts pending reports by the Auditor General and the Commons Standing Committee on National Defence, expected by the end of the year.
- Ministers involved in defence procurement, especially the Defence Minister, should have at least a five-year separation from the employ of any government contractors.
- The Defence Minister should be given clear responsibility for defence procurement.
- A new parliamentary standing committee should be established with the responsibility for defence procurement and monitoring programs.
