Notes :

  1. "Full DND Cost" is the sum of incremental cost plus the salaries of Regular Force personnel, equipment depreciation, command and support cost, as well as the operating cost of some major equipment, such as aircraft, that are within normal planned activity rates and, therefore, had not been included in incremental cost.
  2. "Incremental DND Cost" is the additional costs for personnel and equipment that are directly attributable to the Canadian Forces operation. More specifically, incremental costs include the additional cost to deploy troops and equipment and to provide ongoing maintenance and support during the applicable operation, in addition to any specialized training required for the operation. DND does not include the full capital acquisition cost of major equipment in incremental cost, unless procured specifically for the mission with no life expectancy post operation, as this equipment will not be used in other CF operations. However, the full cost includes depreciation of major equipment.
  3. Note that Report on Plans and Priorities (RPP) 2012-13 incorporates all known activities up to December 31, 2011 and includes final operational costs for some domestic operations. The 2011-12 DPR reports activities as of March 31, 2012 and includes any revisions made post the 2012-13 RPP submission.
  4. Generally, contingencies are not forecasted for domestic operations until they occur. Op CARIBBE is the exception as it is a recurring operation, however it falls within the scope of domestic operations because of its location.
  5. The 2011-12 Actual Full Costs are lower than the Forecasted Full Costs for Op LOTUS, due to lower actual costs for air-related activities . Additionally, the Actual Incremental Costs are lower than the Forecasted Incremental Costs, as the forecast included personnel costs for Regular Force members, which should not have been included.
  6. The 2011-12 Actual Costs are lower than the Forecasted Costs for Op LUSTRE mainly due to fewer actual flying hours.
  7. Although Op MOBILE was an international operation, responsibility for the Recognition Ceremony was tasked to CANADACOM, and therefore reported as a domestic operation.
