Within the Department of Defence, I've had two briefings on what's being done to ensure value for money, performance of procurement, performance of the equipment that's in the system already to ensure that maintenance is continuing to be done, that the equipment is available and ready for the forces to use. They have quite sophisticated tools now to measure what's in refit, what's available, and what's not available for the commanders of the army, air force, and Royal Canadian Navy in order to ensure readiness.
I'm not yet ready to comment on the broader military procurement context, the industrial capability writ large, the technology transfer—as you talk about—and innovation. In six months, potentially I will be. It's a massive undertaking. ISED is very engaged. Industrial technical benefits are a huge element of any procurement. All large procurement has to ensure that there is a return to Canada of both knowledge and investment. That is a major driver of procurement, and it seems to be functioning very well. When we get briefed on what's going on with, for example, the construction of the offshore fisheries science vessel or the Arctic offshore patrol vessels that are being built in Halifax, we see the investment across Canada through subcontracts. You can see the financial benefit already. As for the technical benefit and the knowledge transfer, it's a nascent industry and it's going to grow.
