Thank you, Mr. Chair, and I'd like to thank the witnesses.
I'd like to start with you, Mr. Leduc. You mentioned, as an ex-Big Five employee in Deloitte, some of the impediments around doing business with the government, and that most of the value propositions that we put on the table to be able to secure these contracts are now considered impediments for small businesses to be able to bid on these things.
You've also talked about a method of open procurement. You've talked about “agile”. You've talked about the pilot, which is a very interesting topic. What I want to know is this: which jurisdictions have been successful in transferring from the model we have to a model that's agile, a model that's pilot-based? What were the challenges they faced? How can we partner with an organization such as ITAC to facilitate that transition?
