Internal audit : Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV).: D58-253/2011E-PDF

“The Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) project was selected for audit based on an analysis of 298 equipment projects worth over $92 billion. The project represents approximately 1 percent of the total value of the capital program; therefore, the audit findings do not necessarily reflect Department-wide project management practices. In accordance with the 2008 Canada First Defence Strategy, the TAPV is one of four fleets in the $5.02-billion Family of Land Combat Vehicles (FLCV) program to provide a robust and flexible capability for Canada’s soldiers on high-risk missions abroad. In June 2009, after completing a 14-month options analysis phase, the TAPV project was authorized to proceed with the definition phase of the acquisition of 500 vehicles with an option of 100 more vehicles. The new TAPVs will replace aging armoured reconnaissance vehicles and complement other fleets of vehicles that have insufficient protection and mobility. This audit assessed the adequacy of the TAPV management control framework, governance processes and risk management strategy to ensure a cost-effective acquisition"--Results in brief, p. iii.
