    Industry Sustainment Business Case Analysis (SBCA) Workshops: NEW DATES

    Purpose: The purpose of this notice is to invite industry representatives working in defence sustainment to participate in one of the on-line Industry Sustainment Business Case Analysis (SBCA) Workshops, listed below. This workshop will assist industry in understanding how they will be engaged during the SBCA process to contribute to, and influence the development of optimized sustainment solutions for military equipment.


    Dates_____________________ Registration Status

    Monday, 25 March 2024 _____________ Open

    What is a SBCA: The SBCA is a rigorous analytical process that is informed by industry and best practices. It results in both improved decision making, and the development of integrated sustainment solutions that are optimized based on principles of: performance, value for money, flexibility, and socio-economic benefits. The SBCA is designed to assess/evaluate all relevant options contributing to the development of tailored sustainment solutions for military equipment.

    Why is this important: The SBCA contributes to clearly defined enterprise level outcomes and increasingly precise sustainment requirements. Combined with preliminary SBCA option analyses, these enable Canada to meaningfully engage with industry, early in the procurement process. This facilitates forthright discussions on commercial sustainment considerations, opportunities for innovation and mutual risk reduction, the strengths of industry members, and more. Early engagement provides industry with additional time to craft sustainment solutions that closely align with client requirements. The early establishment and discussion of outcomes, underpins Canada’s ability to integrate performance measures, payment, incentives and results, to achieve optimal sustainment outcomes, as per the four sustainment principles (performance, value for money, flexibility and economic benefits).

    Additionally, the SBCA Workshop helps industry to:

    Understand how to achieve increased effectiveness in aligning their proposed sustainment solutions with client outcomes, objectives, requirements and success criteria;
    Understand how to influence the development of optimized sustainment solutions, through early engagement, without compromising competitive advantage; and
    Understand how the SBCA process is executed (i.e. the topics analyzed and the decisions rendered), to develop tailored and optimized sustainment solutions for military equipment.
    About these Workshops: Unless otherwise noted, workshops are scheduled: 8:00 – 12:00 noon (Eastern Time), and will be delivered in English. Workshops are conducted in an informal atmosphere that provides for questions and discussion. Please Note: While every effort is made to address participant concerns and discuss issues of mutual interest, SBCA workshops do not address specific SBCA files or procurements.

    Registration: To register, please send an email to, providing your name, email address (for confirmation of registration and distribution of the workshop materials), your company name and your position.
