Background: The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) and Canadian Coast Guard (Coast Guard), and Transport Canada (TC) require consulting services for a third party analysis to identify an ideal organizational construct(s) for the delivery of Transport Canada’s (TC) Aircraft Services Directorate (ASD) business lines. The resultant proposed construct must optimize the operational effectiveness of existing program mandates and implement fiscal efficiencies, while considering benefits to the whole of government, including the VIP fleet and services. Objective: The objective of the work is to conduct an in-depth evaluation of the sustainability of the current services delivered by Transport Canada (TC) Aircraft Services Directorate (ASD) through the lenses of departmental mandates, appropriate service performance criteria, effective governance, fiscal management, and asset renewal / recapitalization from a whole of government perspective. To accomplish this, an independent third party, with the support of DFO/CCG, Department of National Defence (DND), TC ASD and TC Civil Aviation, will conduct a comprehensive enterprise analysis of TC ASD fiscal and service-delivery structures to provide a recommendation on the way forward for the following business lines, each assessed individually and in combination with each other: Coast Guard Helicopter Operation and Maintenance Services; Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Operations and Maintenance services including the National Aerial Surveillance Program and the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) program delivery; DND Maintenance and Operations and Training services for Fixed Wing and Rotary Wing Fleets; and TC Civil Aviation operations and Training Services for Fixed Wing, and Rotary Wing fleets. Scope of Work: The analysis is to investigate options for the provision of aviation services, including maintaining the TC ASD status quo or other models of service delivery, which could include partial industry outsourcing for training. To focus the parameters of the effort, the analysis will be characterized by the incorporation of the following five key factors: Mandate Determine if a clarity in mandate for the provision of air services is required. Governance There is a need to evaluate and determine the best governance structure(s) to support departmental mandates. Service Performance / Standards The levels of service required to support individual program mandates is to be reviewed and confirmed. Funding / Cost Recovery Model This study will determine the appropriate funding / investment levels to sustain effective and efficient current and future organizational construct(s) Asset Renewal / Recapitalization Consider and assess life-cycle costs to address the present deficit but also the future capital requirements including, aircraft, simulators and infrastructure required to meet the fleet renewal needs.
