The NSPS ExperiencePresentation to the PBO11 Dec 2012

What is the nsps

Establish a long-term, strategic relationship with 2 Canadian shipyards to build $33B worth of ships

One shipyard to build the Combat Vessels Package

Arctic / Offshore Patrol Ship, Canadian Surface Combatant

The other to build the Non-Combat Vessels Package

Offshore Oceanographic Science Vessel, Offshore Fisheries Science Vessel, Polar Icebreaker, Joint Support Ship

Set-aside the individual projects for $2B worth of smaller vessels for competition by other than the 2 selected yards and their affiliates

Repair, maintenance and refit – Business as usual

What is the NSPS?

Economic benefits for canada

Economic Benefits for Canada

The Government has recognized a once-in-a-generation opportunity to leverage its fleet renewal investment to foster a stronger, more sustainable Canadian marine industry.

The Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI) has estimated that the renewal of the federal fleet will support 15,000 jobs annually in communities across Canada over the next 30 years. (Sovereignty, Security and Prosperity – Government Ships, May 2009)

Canada’s marine industries are broader than the ship construction that occurs in shipyards and involves many hundreds of Canadian companies, most of them small and medium enterprises.

The Industrial and Regional Benefits Policy will ensure that the full value of the resulting contracts (both shipyard and non-shipyard related work) is leveraged back into the Canadian economy.




What is nsps

What is NSPS?

  • 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

NSPS Process - What Did We Do?


Nsps timeline

NSPS Timeline

Next Step

  • Get actual ship design / ship build contracts in place

Project Contract Negotiations

A phased approach to shipbuilding contracts

A Phased Approach toShipbuilding 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


Shipyard selection framework

Shipyard Selection Framework

Basis of Selection:

The Best Overall Score from the combination of Capabilities & Improvements, Cost to Canada, Financial Situation and Value Proposition

Shipyard selection framework1

Shipyard Selection Framework

Mandatory requirements

Mandatory Requirements

Mandatory Requirements grouped into 4 areas:

  • Administrative

    • Normal PWGSC requirements

    • Continued adherence to pre-qualification criteria used to short-list the 5 shipyards

    • Industrial Regional Benefits requirements (100%)

  • Legal

    • Related to the entity submitting the proposal

  • Financial

    • Minimum normal standards regarding financial capability, in line with industry practices

    • Bidder cannot be under CCAA or insolvent

Shipyard selection framework2

Shipyard Selection Framework

Current state

Current State

  • The Current State of a shipyard was the most important rated element

  • The weighting of Current State element in the evaluation process reflected its importance

  • First Marine International report used as the measure of a shipyard’s Current State

Shipyard s plans

Shipyard’s Plans

  • Shipyards submitted plans that proposed capability improvements to reduce overall costs to build ships

  • Plans also identified upgrades to infrastructure, technology or processes

Shipyard selection framework3

Shipyard Selection Framework

Cost for upgrades improvements

Cost for Upgrades & Improvements

  • The improvements to shipyards are normally funded via new work projects

  • Shipyards identified costs based on FMI report

  • A principle of the NSPS evaluation process was to identify these costs as discrete items and evaluate them

  • The lower the cost the higher the rating

Shipyard selection framework4

Shipyard Selection Framework

Shipyard s financial situation

Shipyard’s Financial Situation

  • Financial situation assessed based on:

    • Financial capability (experience)

    • Access to financing

  • Evaluation assisted by 3rd party professionals (PwC) who submitted assessments using financial industry norms

  • Shipyards had to demonstrate access to working capital for first project(s)

Shipyard selection framework5

Shipyard Selection Framework

Value proposition

Value Proposition

  • The Value Proposition considers broader socio-economic benefits

  • Canada identifed a minimum commitment level of 0.5% of contract value for Value Proposition investments within the mandatory portion of the Shipyard Selection Framework

  • At the time of contract negotiation, shipyards will submit an Investment Plan outlining the investment activity(s) proposed to satisfy Value Proposition commitments for each project along the key priority areas

Nsps results


For the combat work package:

Irving Shipbuilding Inc. is the selected shipyard with a score of 82.8%. Cost to Canada is $0.

For the non-combat work package:

Vancouver Shipyards Co. Ltd. is the selected shipyard with a score of 76.8%. Cost to Canada is $0.

The new approach to procurement

National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy Secretariat

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
