New Proposals Sought For Canadian Safety and Security Program
Sunday, April 30, 2017
The Government of Canada is seeking proposals in support of the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) Call for Proposals, for innovative science and technology (S&T) projects.
As of May 2014, up to $15 million will be available for new projects under the CSSP. The submission period for proposals will be from June 20th, 2013 and will close on July 18th, 2013. The selected projects will be announced by February 2014.
"This program brings together the best minds from the science and technology domains to support Canada's public safety and national security priorities," said the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence. "It helps strengthen Canada's ability to mitigate the impact from such things as acts of terrorism, crime and natural disasters."
"Investing in science and technology is important for ensuring public safety and security," said the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety. "The Canadian Safety and Security Program strengthens our preparedness and ability to respond to threats. Research that helps us to mitigate the effects of all types of incidents or disasters is of great value in building resilient communities."
This competitive call for proposals is part of the CSSP investment that ensures Canadians and their institutions have a greater resilience to global and domestic public safety and security threats, which may include common security and defence requirements. The call for proposals process is administered by Public Works and Government Services Canada, on behalf of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). Interested bidders should consult the CSSP information available on the DRDC website at: http://www.drdc-rddc.gc.ca/drdc/en/centres/drdc-css-rddc-css/canadian-safety-and-security-program/proposals-propositions/.
DRDC is the national leader in defence and security S&T. As an agency of Canada's Department of National Defence (DND), DRDC provides DND, the Canadian Armed Forces and other government departments as well as the public safety and national security communities with the knowledge and technologies needed to defend and protect Canada's interests at home and abroad.
The Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) is a federally-funded program. The program's mandate is to strengthen Canada's ability to anticipate, prevent, mitigate, prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters, serious accidents, crime and terrorism through the convergence of science and technology (S&T) with policy, operations and intelligence. The CSSP is led by Defence Research and Development Canada's Centre for Security Science (DRDC CSS), in partnership with Public Safety Canada, and supports federal, provincial or municipal government-led projects in collaboration with response and emergency management organizations, non-governmental agencies, industry and academia.
The CSSP is requesting submissions for innovative project proposals that address identified public safety and security capability priorities, which may include common security and defence requirements.The Call for Proposals (CFP) Solicitation was announced in September 2012 for a period of four years, with proposals being accepted during an annual bid submission period from 2012 - 2015. This process is administered by Public Works and Government Services Canada, on behalf of Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). Interested bidders should consult the CSSP information available on the DRDC website at: http://www.drdc-rddc.gc.ca/drdc/en/centres/drdc-css-rddc-css/canadian-safety-and-security-program/proposals-propositions/.
For this bid submission period, up to $15 million will be available as of May 2014, for new projects under the CSSP. Proposals can be submitted from June 20, 2013, closing on July 18, 2013. The selected projects will be announced by February 2014.
A Collaborative Model
Through projects, studies, exercises, workshops and other activities, the CSSP creates opportunities for S&T experts to work with partners from different public safety and security fields to support the development of knowledge, tools, processes and strategies that are essential for safeguarding Canada, its people, institutions, and infrastructure. This collaborative model ensures that key organizations from government, industry, academia and international organizations are brought together to work on the most pressing safety and security issues facing Canada.
Making Investments to Achieve Strategic Objectives
The CSSP funding will support projects and activities that respond to Canadian public safety and security priorities and address capability gaps. These gaps are identified through risk and vulnerability assessments, and in consultation with safety and security communities of practice, representing policy, operational and intelligence experts.
Ultimately, investments must contribute to achieving the program's primary goal of ensuring that Canadians and their institutions have a greater resilience to global and domestic public safety and security threats. These efforts are guided by a set of long-term goals and outcomes: a secure and efficient flow of people, goods, and services across Canadian borders and ports of entry; a connected and multi-jurisdictional security, intelligence and national emergency management system; and public confidence that hazards are being identified, assessed and addressed in a way that respects Canadian values.
DRDC is the national leader in defence and security science and technology. As an agency of Canada's Department of National Defence (DND), DRDC provides DND, the Canadian Armed Forces and other government departments as well as the public safety and national security communities the knowledge and technological advantage needed to defend and protect Canada's interests at home and abroad.
