Canada appeals trade tribunal’s decision on MSVS SMP programme

26 September 2017

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) has appealed a decision by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT), which found significant problems in the procurement process of the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Standard Military Programme (SMP). The two contracts, totalling CAD725 million (USD587 million) for 1,500 military trucks, were awarded to Mack Defence in July 2015.

Oshkosh Defence Canada Inc. filed a complaint in January 2016 and the CITT ruled in their favour in May of that year, finding five instances where the vehicle submitted by Oshkosh was evaluated unfairly. The CITT recommended a physical re-evaluation take place, if feasible, or compensation be paid to Oshkosh if that was not possible.
