Air Cargo Security project receives 2015 GTEC Distinction Honouree
The Secure Supply Chain Information Management System Enhancement Project was created by Transport Canada to help eliminate bottlenecks at airports. Lansdowne Technologies played a key role in the development of the enhanced system, which enables all applicant companies to align security plans and operations with Air Cargo Security Program requirements. The project was one of 73 nominations in 2015 for recognized excellence in public service delivery, leveraging information technology and information management by GTEC, Canada’s internationally recognized forum for enabling and celebrating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) leadership, innovation and impact in Canada’s public sector.
The project was selected as one of 24 Federal GTEC 2015 Honourees, joining more than 556 public sector teams and individual leaders who, since 1992, have received this distinction for excellence in public service ICT management and delivery.

Defence Procurement Strategy
The Defence Procurement Strategy will have a significant impact on major federal Government procurements. While its impact is still not fully understood, we have seen its inclusion on recent procurements.
With a continued requirement to reinvest 100% of the contract value in work in Canada, we will now see proposals contracts with a value of $20M+ require a Value Proposition with a comprehensive ITB Plan added to those with a value of $100M+. Perhaps more importantly; the Value Proposition will be rated and weighted versus the historical pass/fail of an IRB Plan.
Lansdowne will continue to monitor the application and evaluation of the VP and ITBs.
