Canada — Close Combat Vehicle — Backgrounder

The Close Com­bat Vehi­cle (CCV) will pro­vide the Cana­di­an Forces with a medi­um-weight armoured vehi­cle that is both very well pro­tect­ed and tac­ti­cal­ly (off-road) mobile.

Unlike the oth­er vehi­cles in the Fam­i­ly of Land Com­bat Vehi­cles, the CCV is not replac­ing a vehi­cle in the cur­rent Cana­di­an Forces fleet. The CCV’s fun­da­men­tal pur­pose is to bridge the gap between the cur­rent light (5–25 tonnes) and heavy armoured (45 tonnes +) vehi­cle fleets by pro­vid­ing the Cana­di­an Army with an oper­a­tional capa­bil­i­ty that can pre­dom­i­nant­ly oper­ate with the Main Bat­tle Tanks and the oth­er Cana­di­an Forces armoured vehi­cles with­in a high-threat envi­ron­ment.

This vehicle’s pro­tec­tion and enhanced mobil­i­ty and fire­pow­er will improve our troops’ sur­viv­abil­i­ty and com­bat effec­tive­ness in exe­cut­ing the Cana­da First Defence Strat­e­gy (CFDS) mis­sions through­out the full spec­trum of con­flicts

The CCV project will involve the pro­cure­ment of 108 CCV, to include Infantry Fight­ing Vehi­cle, For­ward Obser­va­tion Offi­cer, Engi­neer Recon­nais­sance, and Tac­ti­cal Com­mand con­fig­u­ra­tions. The project scope also includes the option to pro­cure up to 30 addi­tion­al vehi­cles, as well as the devel­op­ment and imple­men­ta­tion of an in-ser­vice sup­port con­tract.

Fol­low­ing the con­clu­sion of a Solic­i­ta­tion of Inter­est and Qual­i­fi­ca­tion (SOIQ), a Request for Pro­pos­als (RFP) was released to the Pre-Qual­i­fied Bid­ders. There were no tech­ni­cal­ly com­pli­ant bids received in response to the orig­i­nal RFP. A sec­ond RFP was issued to the five Pre-Qual­i­fied Bid­ders in April 2012 and will close in August 2012. Con­tract award is expect­ed in 2013.

The Gov­ern­ment of Canada’s Indus­tri­al and Region­al Ben­e­fits pol­i­cy applies to this project, mean­ing that the win­ning com­pa­ny must gen­er­ate eco­nom­ic activ­i­ty in Cana­da, dol­lar for dol­lar equal to the con­tract val­ue.
