DCC recognized for excellence in procurement

Defence Construction Canada has been awarded the prestigious 27th Annual Achievement of Excellence in Procurement (AEP) for 2022 from the National Procurement Institute. The AEP Award is earned by public and non-profit agencies that demonstrate a commitment to procurement excellence. This annual program recognizes procurement organizations that embrace innovation, professionalism, productivity, leadership and e-procurement.

The AEP program encourages the development of excellence as well as continued organizational improvement to earn the award annually.

This is the ninth year that DCC has been recognized with the AEP Award—one of only 172 agencies in the United States and Canada and one of only four organizations in Canada.

Industry recognizes DCC for government procurement first

DCC is proud to have been awarded the 2022 Excellence in Procurement Team Award by the Canadian Institute of Procurement and Materiel Management.

A DCC team delivered the procurement and construction of the Royal Canadian Dragoons facility at CFB Petawawa using the integrated project delivery model. This was a Government of Canada first involving one of the most inclusive and innovative contracting models in the construction industry today.

The project to construct the $70-million armoury and training facility came in five months ahead of schedule and under budget, with up to $4.8 million savings to the Crown.

The award recognizes Government of Canada teams who apply innovative ideas or improve existing processes, demonstrate excellence and exemplify the strengths and adaptability of the professional procurement community.

DCC compensation team wins prestigious Government of Canada award

Defence Construction Canada’s (DCC) compensation team has won a Michelle C. Comeau HR Leadership Award from the federal Human Resources Council.

The team was recognized for its efforts to ensure DCC employees continued to be paid accurately and on time over a period of six weeks in the fall of 2019, when DCC’s computer network was unexpectedly offline.

The group processed the payroll for nearly 1,000 employees without access to computers, e-mail, enterprise resource planning systems, personnel files and electronic pay data.

DCC is one of seven recipients (individuals and teams) of a 2019 award. “This year’s recipients have shown innovation, creativity, commitment and perseverance in supporting the advancement of the people management agenda,” the Human Resources Council said.

The awards, named in memory of a former Associate Deputy Minister, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, recognize leadership and excellence in human resources management in the federal public service.

DCC received its award at a small ceremony in Ottawa in September 2020.
