Public Accounts committee  In certain cases, where we can foresee, or need to position ourselves to react quickly, we actually put together packages of spare parts that are pre-positioned in order to allow us to respond quickly on need. Beyond that, as the deputy minister had mentioned, the requirement is

Public Accounts committee  In certain cases, per the response to the Auditor General's report, where we need to introduce additional discipline into the establishment of those high-priority requests to ensure they are in fact reflective of an urgent need and that we're not diverting resources where they co

Public Accounts committee  We've actually grown since “Strong, Secure, Engaged” was published. We've had an increase in the number of public servants involved in our capital acquisition program, which includes the purchase of spare parts that are delivered into the system to support our equipment, as we pu

Troy Crosby

Public Accounts committee  The lessons we've taken away from these conversations with our allies are that, given the unique aspects of the military supply system, there aren't any particularly specific targets that are achievable in the sense that, where industry holds itself to a very high standard of res

Public Accounts committee  It's in an interesting area inasmuch as we take part in a number of international supply chain fora with our allies on an ongoing basis, whether it's the Five Eyes partners, the U.S., the U.K., Australia or New Zealand, for example. As well, we also are very well connected with i

Public Accounts committee  There are two opportunities here. One, to build on the answer that was just provided there, is that in certain cases there are deliberate choices made to leave stock levels at zero because the materiel can be acquired fairly rapidly at a local level and it's not worth storing. In

November 19th, 2020Committee meeting

Troy Crosby

Public Accounts committee  The positioning is part of our action plan, of knowing where we're storing our equipment and whether we have it in the right numbers and the right places. I think the Auditor General's report has highlighted the importance of that, of making sure that we're resilient and responsi

Troy Crosby

Public Accounts committee  I have to completely agree with the deputy. The thing that we most need right now is to focus on a very disciplined execution of the plan that we put in front of ourselves. We're absolutely seized with getting this done. Everyone is focused on supporting the Canadian Armed Forces

November 19th, 2020Committee meeting

Troy Crosby

Public Accounts committee  To answer the question about the system we rely on, it's based on an SAP program. We call our system the “defence resource management information system”. That is going to be modernized, moving towards an S/4HANA solution, which really drives, ultimately, the timelines we were sp

Troy Crosby

Public Accounts committee  Thank you, Deputy. What I'll add is that, at this point, our focus has been on stock out rates, the occasions where there is zero stock available to respond to a demand. Over time, as we bring in new technology, we have access to the information and we could really measure our

Troy Crosby

Public Accounts committee  Some of the steps between now and 2028 have been mentioned. That culminates with the delivery of an enterprise-wide resource management information system that will allow us to make all that information come together and measure the performance effectively. Between now and then,

November 19th, 2020Committee meeting

Troy Crosby

National Defence committee  The resilience of the supply chain really comes from our ability to hold sufficient spares and to have the repair and overhaul capacity that's required when it's needed. Our time frames, looking out 30, 60 and 90 days and beyond, are sufficient to maintain our supply chains and w

Troy Crosby

National Defence committee  Thank you, Madam Chair, for the question. I'll respond in two general categories. The first category would be those projects that are largely being advanced through work that takes place in office spaces. In the beginning there was a little bit of a slowdown, as we came to grip

Troy Crosby

National Defence committee  I appreciate the committee's flexibility in allowing me to join late here today and the opportunity to address some of these important questions. When it comes to the supply chain, the way the spring played out was that the materiel group worked really closely with the Canadian
