6.1 Naval, Army and Air force Bases enable military operations and defence activities

6.2 Defence infrastructure is well-managed throughout its lifecycle

Link to the department’s Program Inventory Program 6.1 - Defence Infrastructure Program Management
Purpose and objectives of transfer payment program

The Department of National Defence (DND) uses the CAP to optimize its infrastructure by seeking cost-effective solutions with eligible recipients who have the mandate and capacity to operate and maintain the infrastructure and who may also benefit from joint use opportunities. Contributions are made to:

  • upgrade infrastructure (e.g. roads, sidewalks, and sewers in residential quarters; water treatment plants and water distribution systems that serve operational and non-operational requirements) after it has been transferred from DND to the eligible recipient;
  • expand and/or upgrade existing local infrastructure to better support DND requirements (e.g. water treatment plants, water distribution systems, airport runway extensions, roads); and/or
  • construct new local infrastructure, such as:
    • community-oriented facilities for shared-use by the Base/Wing and local authorities (e.g. arenas, gymnasiums, swimming pools, community centers);
    • infrastructure to support non-operational requirements such as for residential accommodation (e.g. roads, sidewalks, sewers); and
    • infrastructure to support operational requirements (e.g. new access to the Base/Wing).
Expected results

The immediate expected result is:

  • Collaborations with local authorities to upgrade/expand/construct and own and operate public infrastructure and services that DND requires.

The intermediate results are:

  • Reduced DND non-core infrastructure; 
  • Cost-effective development and maintenance of infrastructure, which involves one of the following:  
    • reduced operating/capital costs, 
    • or cost avoidance; and
    • or minimized DND liability
  • Improved/new/maintained infrastructure for use by DND members and their families.

The final expected results are:

  • The optimization of DND infrastructure to support the evolving force structure; and 
  • Enhanced quality of life in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).

There is no planned evaluation. The Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) Policy on Results exempts ongoing programs of grants and contributions that have five-year average actual expenditures of less than $5M per year from the five-year reviews required under section 42.1 of the Financial Administration Act.

General targeted recipient groups

Provinces and territories; Municipalities and local organizations; and Industry-related.

Initiatives to engage applicants and recipients

A two-step contribution agreement to facilitate and encourage recipients to engage early in the process as DND can now transfer funds at the design stage via a first contribution agreement. Once the design and any other aspects (e.g. asset transfer) are agreed upon, a second contribution agreement can be signed with the recipient and the project can be implemented.

4.2 Defence and security challenges are addressed through innovative solutions

Link to the department’s Program Inventory

Program 4.8 – Science, Technology and Innovation

Purpose and objectives of transfer payment program

The purpose of the IDEaS Grants and Contribution Program is to support, increase and sustain Science and Technology (S&T) community capacity external to DND that can generate new ideas and formulate solutions to Canada’s current and future defence and security requirements. This will be achieved by funding S&T initiatives that are in line with defence and security S&T priority areas.

The objectives are as follows:

  • Support basic and applied research, analysis, technology development and knowledge transfer leading to innovative solutions to key S&T challenges for defence and security identified by DND and the Public Safety Portfolio;
  • Mobilize, engage and support national academic, public and industry researchers to advance innovation toward S&T challenges for defence and security; and
  • Encourage, enhance, sustain and support innovation networks and collaborations between other levels of government, industry, and academia to help build a critical mass of expertise, knowledge and solutions for the defence and security of Canada.
Expected results

Short-term: DND to have effective mechanisms to engage innovators, solicit ideas, and initiatives to address defence and security challenges. This will be measured by the percentage of posted S&T challenges that succeed in soliciting responses from innovators.

Medium-term: Canadian innovators will be engaged in solving defence and security challenges. This will be measured by evaluating the percentage of posted defence and security problems or questions that result in projects or initiatives addressing them.

Long-term: Canadian S&T networks in defence and security are sustained and primed to develop advice and innovative solutions to protect, secure and defend Canada and its citizens.

Fiscal year of last completed evaluation

General targeted recipient groups

Eligible recipients for funding are:

  • Canadian universities and educational institutions chartered in Canada;
  • Incorporated Canadian not-for-profit organizations or associations;
  • Provincial/territorial or municipal government organizations;
  • Incorporated Canadian for-profit companies, organizations or associations; and
  • Any group, cluster or consortium composed of eligible recipients, and their researchers and professionals, including their international S&T collaborators. All eligible recipients must possess the legal status necessary to enter into a Contribution Agreement.

Federal and provincial crown corporations are not eligible for funding under the Grants and Contribution Program.

Initiatives to engage applicants and recipients

The IDEaS program strives to communicate to its stakeholders effectively, through a wide range of products and to a number of different audiences across Canada. Program applicants are supported through a dedicated program website (www.canada.ca/defence-IDEaS) which provides access to calls for proposals, program guides, eligibility requirements and program administration contact details (DND.IDEaS-IDEeS.MDN@forces.gc.ca).

Calls for proposals were widely advertised through public press releases, e-mail distribution lists, and liaison with a wide range of associations, other government departments, and other stakeholders. For example, since the launch of the program in April 2018, the program has held more than 40 information sessions, presentations and discussions with thousands of innovators in various forums across Canada, including conferences, discussion panels, information sessions and meetings with companies and associations that are interested in IDEaS.

The program continues to engage with innovators to ensure it disseminates information that is coherent, relevant and results oriented.

Cadet Leagues of Canada
Initiatives to engage applicants and recipients
CAF continues to engage the Cadet Leagues through its formalized governance structure and current Terms of Reference. Current engagement is focused on updating League responsibilities that are contained in Queen’s Regulations and Orders (QR&O) for the Canadian Cadet Organizations (CCO). Once this is accomplished, it will be the catalyst for a complete rationalization of the current Transfer Payment Program (TPP); the Grant Program to the National Offices of the Cadet Leagues of Canada. This will be accomplished through the required corporate submission to TBS in order to make the necessary changes to the current Terms and Conditions if it is determined that this TPP will continue.
