Independent Review Panel for Defence Acquisition review criteria
The Independent Review Panel for Defence Acquisition challenges the requirements for major military procurement projects. As outlined in the Panel’s Terms of Reference, there are several criteria that determine which projects are subject to review by the Panel.
The Panel will review projects that have a total estimated cost of $100 million or more calculated in budget year dollars (exclusive of taxes). The Panel will also review Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) that could lead to a project where the total value of the expenditure under the MOU plus the potential procurement cost is estimated at $100 million or more.
Treasury Board Approval Required
The Panel will review projects that have a Project Complexity and Risk Assessment that exceeds the authority delegated by Treasury Board to the Minister of National Defence under the Organization Project Management Capacity Assessment. In addition, the Panel will also review projects that have been otherwise identified for Treasury Board approval by the Treasury Board Secretariat, or referred for Treasury Board approval by the Minister of National Defence.
Referred by Minister or Deputy Minister of National Defence
Finally, the Panel can also be asked to review any project at the request of the Minister or Deputy Minister of National Defence.
