Acerca de


In a comprehensive study of the defence-procurement environment and the legislative and regulatory framework that governs the process, Alan Williams argues that an inoperable procurement process has led to the near disarmament of the Canadian Forces, the collapse of national defence policy, and a system compromised by bureaucracy and conflicting interests. The only way to fix these problems, says Williams, is to completely reinvent the system of defence procurement, from the roles of various people and organizations to the process itself. Williams also examines questions surrounding efficiency, accountability, and the motivations of politicians and bureaucrats in defence spending. He provides an exhaustive examination of a complex and vital process - a virtual roadmap for a reconstruction that would allow Canadas defence spending to support national security and the Canadian Forces.

About the Author:

Alan S. Williams is a former assistant deputy minister for the Canadian Department of National Defence. He served in the federal public service for thirty-three years and currently works as an independent consultant.
