Canada's CCV programme terminated by the government (again)

2nd May 2012 - 15:32 GMT | by Jim Dorschner in Washington, DC


Canadian government procurement practices are facing further scrutiny following the abrupt revelation on 27 April that the C$2 billion Close Combat Vehicle (CCV) programme has been cancelled for the second time in just under three years, with a new request for proposals (RfP) issued the same day.

CCV was intended to acquire 108 armoured vehicles capable of operating in concert with Canadian Army Leopard main battle tanks.  Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) spokesman Sebastian Bois told Shephard CCV was terminated because 'there were no technically compliant bids' among those presented by Nexter, General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada (GDLS-Canada) and BAE/Hagglunds.
