Tom Lukiwski Conservative Moose Jaw—Lake Centre—Lanigan, SK

Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to table, in both official languages, the 15th report of the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates, entitled “Modernizing Federal Procurement for Small and Medium Enterprises, Women-Owned and Indigenous Businesses”.

I also want to thank, with great sincerity, the very hard work done by our clerk and analyst, who put together an extremely comprehensive report, which I think will be able to provide a good road map for not only this government but future governments in dealing with procurement issues for SMEs.

Finally, for all the committee members of OGGO, particularly members such as the member for Edmonton West, this was an incredibly long and arduous study, but it has paid off in spades. Hopefully the government will pay attention to the recommendations.

Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the committee requests that the government table a comprehensive response to the report.

Kelly McCauley Conservative Edmonton West, AB

Mr. Speaker, with regard to the report tabled by my colleague, the member for Moose Jaw—Lake Centre—Lanigan, also known as the resort city of Regina Beach, I want to inform the House that official opposition members of the committee have provided a supplementary report to accompany the report presented by the committee.

We agree in principle with many of the elements of the report prepared by the committee, but we felt that there were some key elements heard during witness testimony that we believe were under-represented in the report. Of these, we wanted to highlight the following points: that the government commit to concrete action in simplifying the overly complex procurement process for small businesses; that it reduce the red tape in the process so that small and medium-sized enterprises can access and fairly compete on federal procurement opportunities; and that it ensure that the federal departments involved in managing procurement projects understand their role in contributing to meaningful reform.

We were provided with incredibly strong testimony throughout the study, and we want to thank the many witnesses who took time out of their busy schedules to contribute their knowledge and expertise to the study.
