Updated IP management principles for defence procurement

December 20, 2017

After close consultation between AIAC, Public Services and Procurement Canada, the Department of National Defence, Innovation Science Economic Development Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard, the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI) and the Defence Industry Advisory Group, the Government of Canada has published an updated set of principles for the management of intellectual property in defence and marine procurement.

These principles lay the foundation for enhanced strategic planning of intellectual property and future procurement modernization efforts. Based on the new principles, the government will develop IP management strategies to secure needed capabilities, while ensuring value for money and helping the industry foster technological advantages and economic benefits.

The 14 principles for managing intellectual property can be found here.

AIAC will continue to collaborate with government and our partners on tools and guidance on intellectual property management strategies.
