Industry Engagement

BMT's professional industry engagement services help customers find and establish the business relationships they need in order to evaluate options, improve requirements definitions and become a more educated buyer, which improves program success.

A critical part of major procurement programs is the ability to engage industry early in the process so that buyers are aware of options and capabilities available to them while building requirements and specifications. 

BMT provides customers with industry engagement services that support project teams with understanding of Industrial Regional Benefits (IRB), Canadian content constraints, market analysis, awareness of industry's capabilities and procurement approaches and contracting issues. 

Services include: 

  • Program management office (PMO) interface and support 
  • Industry workshop facilitation 
  • Industry day event coordination and management
  • Facilitating meetings with industry
  • Supporting foreign delegations

In addition, BMT's naval material assurance and submarine and ship design performance teams offer direct vendor engagement, requirements definition, specification development and compilation of technical and cost information to support the customer in independent validation and verification (IV&V) and quality assurance (QA) of deliverables.
