The Politics of Procurement: Military Acquisitions in Canada and the Sea King Helicopter
The procurement of military weapons and equipment in Canada has often been controlled by partisan political considerations - not by a clear desire to increase the capability of the military.

The procurement of military weapons and equipment in Canada has often been controlled by partisan political considerations - not by a clear desire to increase the capability of the military. As a result, Canada has often failed to be effective in the design, production, or even the purchase, of weapons and equipment. The Sea King helicopter is a case in point. The Politics of Procurement outlines the history of failed attempts to replace this helicopter. Officially commissioned in 1975, only to be cancelled (to the tune of $478 million), then re-commissioned again, the new helicopters are still years away. This book is the first of its kind to provide a clear description and analysis of the procurement process in Canada. More than a saga about a poorly executed military acquisition, this book is about why the Canadian military has always been under-equipped and often embarrassed on the world stage. It will be of interest to students and practitioners of public policy and political science and a resource for anyone seeking information on defence spending in Canada.
