Description

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;
    • or minimized DND liability, and
  • 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).
Fiscal year of last completed evaluation 2014-15
Decision following the results of last evaluation Continuation
Fiscal year of planned completion of next evaluation 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 be implemented.
