Frequently Asked Questions

Contractors and Consultants FAQ

DCC provides infrastructure services and full lifecycle support for Canada's defence requirements.

While DCC puts the contracts in place and manages them, it relies on private sector contractors and consultants to perform the work required by its Client-Partner. The type of work includes services to support the design, construction, renovation and maintenance of a wide variety of facilities for the infrastructure and environment program of DND.

DCC adheres to Federal Government contracting principles of access, opportunity, fairness and of open competition. Over 95% of its construction contracts are competitively tendered.
