....MSM catches up re:  the first item in this post - from the Globe & Mail:
Quote
Ottawa wants to give Afghan army officers a crash course in bureaucracy.

According to a “letter of interest” published this month on a federal site, the Canadian government hopes to hire several ex-military officials to instruct the Afghan National Army on how to run their troops in Kandahar. Planned topics include subjects such as battleground intelligence and map reading – and even media relations.

The contract gives an insight into Canada's changing priorities ahead of its soldiers' scheduled 2011 departure.

Public support for Canadian combat missions is plummeting as a Taliban insurgency grows and as American reinforcements arrive. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his ministers have been appearing in Afghanistan this month in hopes of re-branding the mission ....

".... This is to provide advance notice that Defence Construction Canada (DCC) is expecting to issue a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to development teams who may then be asked if qualified to respond to a detailed Request for Proposals (RFP). The RFQ is expected to be issued in the fall 2009 and will be made available on the MERX website at www.merx.com.

Through the RFQ process, DCC intends to qualify potential development teams with the interest, capability and capacity to design, build, finance and maintain (DBFM) a new DEFENCE Department office and special purpose facility to be constructed in the greater Ottawa area utilizing a Public-Private-Partnership (P3) approach.  The facility will be located on a site owned by the Government of Canada. This upcoming opportunity will be of interest to developers with the capacity, either directly or through a consortium, for the design, construction, financing and management of a facility comprising a total of 72,000 rentable square metres of office, support and special purpose space, together with associated site development and infrastructure requirements.

Development teams will be required to have the qualifications, experience and capability to provide services at minimum in the following areas of expertise:
• Public-Private-Partnership (P3)
• Design-Build (DB)
• Facility Management (FM)
• Financing
• Provision of physical security and IM/IT infra-structure services.

The facility space will be split into two main functions:
• Office - that generally encompasses the typical open and closed offices, support spaces, meeting rooms, training rooms, etc. required to accommodate management and office administrative functions.
• Special Purpose Space - areas required for special operational functions that include a data centre, electronic labs, computer rooms, fabrication shops, secure areas, and other normal functions associated with a large facility such as loading docks, building entries, cafeterias, security, etc.

The successful Proponent to a subsequent Request for Proposal (RFP), upon approval, will enter into a project agreement to design, build, finance and maintain the building for a management term of 30 years beginning in 2015 ...."

DRDC is conducting a demonstration of a scalable Arctic chokepoint surveillance capability with a wide range of different sensor systems under the Northern Watch (NW) Technology Demonstration Project (TDP). The NW project will conduct a field trial of underwater sensors at an Arctic (maritime) chokepoint in the summer of 2009. The trial will be conducted at Gascoyne Inlet which is located on the south western corner of Devon Island, Nunavut. The purpose of this requirement is to provide support services to an existing science camp at Gascoyne Inlet.

Official Announcement of new Navy Queen's Colours
« Reply #8 on: May 22, 2009, 21:39:41 »
Remember this?

Here's the announcement (.pdf attached in case link doesn't work):
Quote
The Canadian Navy will receive a replacement Queen's Colour on Saturday, June 27th, 2009, at noon at the Garrison Grounds near the Halifax Citadel during a formal parade presided over by Her Excellency, the Right Honourable Michaelle Jean, Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada. Also in attendance will be her husband, Mr. Jean-Daniel Lafond.

The event is free. People of all ages are most welcome to join in celebrating the rich naval history of our country, while sending a strong signal of support to the contemporary navy as it undertakes operations around the world.

This event, formally entitled the "Consecration and Presentation of the Queen's Colour", will be a grand spectacle of pageantry, naval traditions and music.

Over 100 members of the massed band of the Navy comprising members from the renowned Stadacona, Naden and Naval Reserve bands will provide the musical backdrop as 400 sailors and officers from across the country march in a display of precision drill and pageantry. A 21-gun Vice Regal Salute will be fired from the ramparts of the Citadel, while a low fly past of maritime aviation will provide an air element to the event ....

CIDA Hires "Monitoring and Evaluation Consultant" for K'Har PRT
« Reply #11 on: May 27, 2009, 22:06:43 »
Remember this one?  Well, the offer was made and accepted according to the Globe & Mail:
Quote
Canadian officials in Kandahar are hiring a $200,000-a-year Afghan-Canadian consultant to tell them whether they are doing their jobs.

This spring, Ottawa posted a contract saying it desperately needed a “monitoring and evaluation consultant” for the Kandahar Provincial Reconstruction Team.

Half of the value of the contract is earmarked for “professional fees.”

“The need is one of pressing urgency in which delay would be injurious to the public interest,” the contract documents say. The urgency surrounds assessments of “reconstruction and development programming in Kandahar.”

Khair M. Sharif, an Afghan living in Ontario who once headed a group called the Mine Action Programme for Afghanistan, was chosen.

He said he is looking forward to briefings in Ottawa prior to deploying in July ....
