1 National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy Status Update
October 2012

2 The Environment Over the next 30 years, Canada will need to renew the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard fleets to ensure operations can continue in all of Canada’s waters, including the Arctic. Canadian Shipbuilding Policy states that the Government will procure, repair and refit vessels in Canada subject to operational requirements and the continued existence of a competitive domestic marketplace. Canada’s previous approach to building ships was project-by-project with no long term strategy resulting in a “boom” and “bust” cycle. 2

3 What is NSPS? The Strategy was developed and is being implemented to:
Developing the Strategy Selecting the Shipyards Establishing the Relationship Preparing the Yards & Finalizing the Designs Constructing the Ships The Strategy was developed and is being implemented to: Recognize the strategic importance of a strong domestic shipbuilding industry Support the industry’s sustainable development through a long-term approach to federal procurement Ensure that Canada’s needs for large vessels can be met in a timely and affordable manner Seek long-term benefits over short-term fixes

4 Developing the Strategy
Canada launched broad consultations with industry during summer 2009 to inform the strategy development Industry expressed a high level of support for the development of a long-term strategy Most respondents supported establishing a strategic relationship with two shipyards to build all large ships Culminated in June 3, 2010 announcement

5 Elements of NSPS Select 2 Canadian shipyards to build Canada’s large vessels, one to build Combat Vessels and the other Non-Combat Vessels Compete smaller vessels procurements amongst Canadian shipyards other than the 2 selected yards and their affiliates Repair, maintenance and refit – Business as usual; competitive procurements Cabinet approved the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy and the NSPS was announced by Ministers on June Two shipyards will be competitively selected to build 28 large vessels, valued at $33B: one to build combat vessels and the other to build non-combat vessels. Combat Vessel Work Package: Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS), Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC) Non-Combat Vessel Work Package: Offshore Oceanographic Science Vessel (OOSV), Offshore Fisheries Science Vessel (OFSV), Polar Icebreaker, Joint Support Ship (JSS) 116 smaller vessels, valued at $2B, will be set aside for competitive bidding by other shipyards not affiliated with the shipyards selected to build large vessels. Ship repair and refit work, valued at $ M per year, will be competed as per existing procurement practices What’s new about NSPS? The size, duration and potential impact of the long-term agreements and subsequent contracts make the Strategy a new and unique undertaking First time Canada has entered into a long-term relationship with shipyards First time DND and CCG requirements have been combined First time Canada has combined fleet requirements into packages being offered to shipyards 5

6 Selecting the Shipyard
NSPS Industry Day for Canadian shipyards interested in building large ships August 2010 Issue of the Solicitation of Interest and Qualification to all Canadian shipyards September 2010 Issue of the Request for Proposals to qualified bidders Issued Feb 7, 2011, Closed July 21, 2011 Evaluation of Proposals received from the bidders Selection announced October 19, 2011 6 6 6

7 Successful Attributes
Engagement Leadership / Governance / Decision-Making Use of Independent Third Parties 7 7 7

8 Engagement Extensive consultation with bidders took place on the concept, the requirements and the evaluation process and criteria The procurement process was driven by transparency and collaboration Pro-active communication throughout the procurement process 8 8

9 Governance No Political Involvement
Deputy Ministers’ Governance Committee made key decisions in an open and transparent manner Unique dispute avoidance and issue resolution processes Used the governance structure to resolve issues No lobbyists No legal disputes or challenges of the process or the results 9 9

10 Use of 3rd Parties Internationally recognized experts were engaged to:
Monitor Fairness Assess Capability and Performance Benchmarking Provide Expert Advice Assess Financial Proposals Third parties: Attended governance meetings to answer DM & ADM questions directly Provided written attestations that processes, actions and decisions were fair, reasonable and prudent 10

11 Other Attributes Simplified Solicitation of Interest & Qualification
Value Proposition Umbrella Agreements Keeping the results secret until the shipyards were informed Communications 11

12 The New Approach to Procurement
Listen to those with a stake in the process - clients and suppliers in equal measure Suppliers often have valuable ideas about how to efficiently supply the government with what it needs Adopt a governance or decision-making process that allows for real business choices to be made by both clients and procurement staff with direct input from suppliers Make sure there is a robust issue resolution process to address any concerns and manage risks in a timely manner Seek advice and input from those who are knowledgeable or expert but do not have a stake in the process

13 Establishing the Relationships
Long-term nature of the strategic relationships demanded a strong foundation Canada and the two selected shipyards signed Umbrella Agreements in February 2012 The Umbrella Agreements are long-term strategic sourcing agreements that contain the framework for business and relationship management The UA is a long-term strategic sourcing agreement that contains the framework for business and relationship management, such as: Value Proposition commitments and obligations to be fulfilled, and consequences of shortfalls Productivity improvement monitored through periodic benchmarking Conditions precedent to the award of ensuing contracts Pre-agreed commercial terms for the ensuing contracts Negotiation rules and processes to jointly mitigate risks and reduce costs under an open-book environment Expeditious issues resolution process

14 Preparing the Yards & Finalizing the Designs
In order to build the ships efficiently the yards need to modernize their infrastructure An independent 3rd party expert has defined the required Target State and will assess the shipyard’s progress in attaining it Infrastructure upgrades are being done at no cost to Canada Initial ships in both Combat and Non-Combat packages have designs that must be finalized for production of the vessels Shipyards need to review and finalize designs Consultations with shipyards have lead to the decision to proceed on a “Design then Build” approach No design work done yet for Canadian Surface Combatants

15 A Phased Approach to Shipbuilding Contracts
Contracting with shipyards to build ships will generally take place in three phases: Ancillary contracts – understand the requirement and the initial design Production / Construction Engineering contracts – mature the design so it is ready to be built Construction contracts to build the ships The establishment of the timelines for the phases is part of the negotiations with the shipyards The phased approach provides less risk and will improve the efficiency of the shipbuilding process Procurement strategy for the design, development and integration of the Canadian Surface Combatant will be determined following industry engagement

16 Benefits of “Design then Build”
Collaborative/Iterative understanding of requirements Furthering ship Design to Production Level Drawings before Construction Contract Design/Cost Tradeoffs before Construction Contract Simulation & Modeling to attain cost fidelity before Construction Contract Risk mitigation & appropriate risk sharing

17 Ship Construction Contracts
These contracts will be: Negotiated in accordance with the rules established in the Umbrella Agreements Subject to separate Government approval Used by the shipyard to deliver the value proposition commitments and capability improvement commitments of the Umbrella Agreements Current plans show construction of first Non-Combat ship (Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels) beginning in 2013 and the first Combat ship (Arctic/Offshore Patrol Vessels) beginning in 2015

18 Opportunities for Broader Marine Industry
Combat Systems Auxiliaries Outfit and Furnishing Hull Propulsion and Electrical Warship construction provides work to a broad spectrum of the marine industry, much of it high tech Shipyards need to bring along partners / suppliers to increase the Canadian participation in projects Equipment represents a significant portion of the ship construction cost, thus suppliers will play an important role Components sourced offshore will be matched dollar for dollar by IRBs 18

19 Current Status Summary
Shipyards have: Hired senior staff including engineers, managers and production specialists Progressed with their plans to improve their physical facilities Canada has: Been actively maturing its ship requirements Reviewing its processes to ensure momentum is maintained Been in continuous communications with the shipyards on the way ahead Hosted supplier engagement events across the country to introduce companies to the shipyards The Broader Marine Industry is Participating in supplier engagement events Preparing for supplier and sub-contracting opportunities

20 Continuing Industry Engagement
Canada continues to recognize the value of early engagement with industry before decisions are made Upcoming industry engagements this fall will include: Canadian Surface Combatants Strategy for warship design, development and integration In Service Support for AOPS & JSS Small Ship requirement – DND Large Tugs

21 Conclusion We are 1 year into a 30 year program
Much has been accomplished The shipbuilding process is complex Need to get designs and production details right BEFORE cutting steel Need to work with shipyards to ensure they are ready to build ships efficiently and to avoid boom and bust We’re on track to replace Canada’s large ships
