Canadian Defence procurement: “But did you remember to order the Helicopters to go on the Carriers, Mr Harper?”

What caught our eye in this Toronto Star piece was not so much the story of a major and expensive procurement blunder but the codifying of Canadian Government procurement strategy as “The Mr Bean Approach”. We are pretty sure that although it is said that all publicity is good publicity, Rowan Atkinson will not be keen on this particular association.

We posted last week ( on Guy Strafford’s tongue-in-cheek crusade to detoxify “procurement” as a brand – and this kind of publicity certainly does not help.

Anyway, have you posted your suggestions with Proxima?
