Nature of Requirements: 

The purpose of this Letter of Interest is to gain a better understanding of Canadian industrial capabilities related to the sustainment of fighter aircraft. This feedback is being sought in the context of the Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP).  As part of this exercise, the Government of Canada has created a notional framework (Annex A) that outlines the assignment of responsibility for all sustainment activities to either the Department of National Defence (DND) or the Supplier that is selected as a result of the FFCP competitive procurement process. 

Through this LOI, Canada wants to better understand to what extent activities not assigned to DND can be delivered by Canadian industry, in concert with the successful Supplier that is selected as a result of the FFCP competitive procurement process. 

Sustainment is a significant area of focus providing many high value opportunities for Canadian firms, and Canada is seeking feedback to help finalize the overall sustainment approach for the FFCP, and to assist with the development of the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB)/Value Proposition evaluation framework related to the sustainment of future fighter aircraft. This information will also help Canada better understand capabilities in Canada related to the sustainment of a future fighter fleet.  Canada will review all feedback received.
